Our goal is to support the UK’s general engineering processes with a range of high-quality oil skimmer products, directly improving the quality of machine tool coolant in the cutting process.
So far, we have provided thousands of business from a variety of industries with our compact and durable units, implementing a low-cost solution to their issues with tramp oil. The new SKIM-IT range uses the latest skimming technology to keep coolant fluid tanks clear of contaminants, guaranteeing extended tool life and accuracy.
Our tramp oil belt skimmer is a tough and effective tramp oil solution, with the capabilities to remove up to 12 litres of contaminated oil per hour. The skimmer is specially manufactured with a light and portable design for easy installation purposes, while also being suitable for movement within and between machines.
Our belt skimmers are extremely durable, designed to withstand temperatures between 80 and 100°C, with a choice of either 110V or 240V versions available.
Our standard belts are available at either 75mm or 130mm wide, with our belt drops measuring between 125 and 370mm. However, if your machining capabilities extend this, we can offer special belt drops up to 3m.
Recommended for use in machines where there is minimum headroom.
Tramp oil disk skimmers are the perfect solution for your small to medium-sized coolant tanks. The light and compact design can be fitted on any flat surface that has access to your machines oil, allowing for easy installation and with the capability to be moved if needed.
Our disk skimmers remove up to 15 litres of tramp oil per hour, effectively cleaning all oil in the coolant tank and improving coolant quality.
This product is available in a variety of sizes, from 220mm up to 450mm in diameter, allowing you to choose the solution most suitable for your machining needs.
We also offer variations on voltage, providing 110V or 240V versions, alongside oil skimmers sustainable in temperatures of 100⁰C.
Recommended for use in machines where there is plenty of headroom for the disk to operate and where the coolant tank operates above floor level.
Tramp oil is one of the major contaminants of coolant. It usually originates from leaky hydraulic systems, gearboxes, spindles and slideway lubrication systems, predominantly used on modern machine tools.
The oil accumulates on the coolant surface, mainly due to differences in gravity, surface tension the way in which oil bonds itself. This viscous, surface-level fluid makes it relatively easy to remove. However, if not treated effectively, it seals the coolant from the air, creating an ideal culture for the rapid growth of micro-organisms.
The effects of tramp oil on coolant and operatives are as follows:
