Cleveland, Ohio, February 28, 2011 – Abanaki Corporation has a wide variety of coolant skimmers within their specialty coolant maintenance line that have proven to be beneficial to the machining industry. Coolant skimmers can be used to separate oil from machine coolant reducing disposal cost and improving the life of the coolant. Disposing of oil laden coolant is very expensive; if the oil can be removed it makes it easier and less expensive to dispose of. In some situations, companies may be able to re-use the oil elsewhere or sell it for recycling doing their part to help clean our world.

The oil-free coolant can then be recycled or re-used aiding in extending the life and usefulness of the coolant. This helps to reduce maintenance and coolant replacement costs.

Oil skimmers can also cut down on smoke generated from the cutting tools coming into contact with oil laden coolant creating a cleaner workplace.

In order to avoid EPA violations, many machine shops turn to an aqueous parts washer because of limits imposed by the EPA on the discharge of emissions and wastes. As the industrial parts washer cleans the dirty parts, the oil becomes free-floating and can then be removed with a machine shop oil skimmer. Oil skimming has been the perfect solution to parts washers as well as many others.
