Tramp Oil Removal

If dirty coolant machined better, no one would ever dump it. Removing the tramp oil from the coolant offers dramatically increased tool life, improved parts finish and reduced new coolant purchases.

Models range from single to multiple sumps; compressed air to electric driven systems; units that are floor standing, cart mounted, or magnetically mounted to the machine.

Additional Information:

Tramp oil and solids constitute the standard contaminants which can foul metalworking fluids utilized in the machining process.  Tramp oil is a general term used to describe free oil introduced to the coolant. This can occur via the lubrication system on the machine tool.  These oils can include way oil, hydraulic oil, and spindle oils.  Tramp oil can also be introduced by the metal being machined. This typically involves rust inhibitors on the raw stock rinsing off into the coolant.  Tramp oil is also the term generally used to describe the free oil that accumulates as a by-product of the cleaning process in aqueous parts washers.

Tramp oil removal involves taking contaminated oils out of the coolant, to prolong its lifespan and reduce potential wear and tear in the machining process. Removing tramp oil has a number of benefits such as:

  • Greatly extended tool life due to better heat transfer characteristics
  • Improved parts finish due to cleaner coolant
  • Increased productivity due to less machine downtime and maintenance
  • Reduced operating costs resulting from lower disposal costs for waste coolant
  • Increased savings due to a reduced requirement for new coolant
  • Eliminate smell and smoke associated with oil laden coolant
  • Reduction in operator dermatitis due to contaminated coolant
