C-Thru Separator: Success Story
An international manufacturer of valves was experiencing severe problems with tramp oil on various CNC machines whilst using their belt skimmer.
European Filter Solutions Ltd offered them a free trial of a C Thru Separator which only took only 20 minutes to install on a CNC machine of their choice.
A significant improvement in cutting fluid quality was quickly noticed. The tramp oil which had been removed could be clearly seen within the C Thru Separator.
The cutting fluid was monitored over a period of 12 months with the following positive comments reported:
- There is a significant reduction in fuid usage.
- There is no longer any problems with tramp oil as all tramp oil entering the system is being removed constantly by the C-Thru Separator.
- The tramp oil which is being removed is now being sold instead of the company having to pay for its removal.
- Payback on investment was established at approximately 7 months.
Benefits of a C-Thru Separator
- Quick and easy installation – typically 15 to 30 minutes.
- Removes tramp oil 10 to 15 times faster than a belt, disc or rope skimmer.
- Extended fluid life.
- Increased tool life.
- No floor space utilised.
- Easy to clean.
- Patented transparent design.
The outcome of the trial at this customer was that due to the success of the C-Thru Separator, a programme to fit one to each of their 22 machines was put in place.
