Coolant Skimmers and Tramp Oil Skimmers for Coolant Maintenance

The presence of a coolant skimmer, tramp oil skimmer or a coolant maintenance product in a machine shop holds many benefits. Below are a few of the advantages:

  • Reduced smoke generated from the cutting tool coming into contact with oil laden coolant
  • Drop in "rotten egg" smell from bacteria reacting with oil on the top of coolant tanks
  • Decreased risk associated with dermatitis or other skin issues from poor coolant maintenance
  • Improved tool life with effective coolant recycling
