Coolant Maintenance Products

Abanaki offers a variety of coolant maintenance products. Machining coolants are an essential part of metalworking operations, but they are often only used a short time before being discard. While coolant operates the process, it can come contaminated and cause a multitude of issues.

  • Smoke/Smog develops when cutting tools make contact with oil laden coolant.
  • A “rotten egg” smell is released from bacteria reacting with oil in coolant.
  • Employees are at increased risk for skin disorders, like dermatitis.
  • Coolant loses effectiveness to extend tool life.
  • Replacing coolant is expensive and causes machine downtime.

Coolant maintenance products are available to avoid these hazardous, expensive and unpleasant problems. Coolant skimmers remove oil to extend the life of coolant and prevent hazardous conditions. The coolant maintenance products found below offer various features to ensure proper coolant maintenance. A combination of these products will bring your tool shop an improved working environment, extended tool life and reduced maintenance costs.

Coolescer™ Coolant Refresher
The Abanaki Coolescer is a must for any machine shop dealing with machine tool coolant. This unit will extend CNC coolant life, reduce disposal costs, eliminate down time, improve tool life and help prevent dermatitis.
  • Leak proof fittings
  • Crush resistant hose
  • One year warranty
  • Self contained system
  • Coalescing cartridge never needs to be replaced

Chiperator™
Chip and Coolant Separation System. The air driven Chiperator vacuums and filters old cutting fluids loaded with chips from machine sumps, tanks and parts washers. When the optional Abanaki's Lil' Blue™ skimmer is purchased, the coolant will also be cleansed of tramp oils. Save money by making old coolant useable again. The Chiperator is an inexpensive way to clean dirty machine sumps. The air driven Chiperator quickly separates chips and swarf from liquids. It drains or refills its 55 gallon drum in less than 2 minutes! Simply suck up coolant laden with chips, swarf and muck, and the Chiperator strains the unwanted solids. The Chiperator then pumps the strained coolant back to the sump. Standard Features:
  • Strains 40 gallons of chips and coolant per minute
  • Efficient venturi design consumes less air than competitive models
  • Acts as both a vacuum and a pump
  • Economical, disposable filter bags make cleanup a breeze
  • Filters out chips and shavings from plastic, steel, aluminum, ceramic, etc.
  • Quiet; less noise than other air driven or electrical units
  • No moving parts
  • Equipped with float valve to automatically shut off unit when drum is full
  • Equipped with automatic pressure relief valve for added safety
  • Complete with on/off valve for easy shutoff
