C Thru Separator Success Story

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.
