Abanaki’s New TubeTastic!™ Oil Skimmer Eliminates Need for Overhead Access to Coolant Sump

Cleveland, OH, June 10, 2005 – Abanaki Corporation, the world leader in oil skimming products, has introduced an innovative new oil skimmer that works in places where other skimmers can’t: on coolant sumps with little or no overhead access.

The problem-solving TubeTastic!™ easily mounts to the side of virtually any machining center coolant sump. The skimmer can skim oil from chip conveyors or totally enclosed machining centers. Using an existing opening or through a small access cutout, the unit’s collector tube runs through the surface of the coolant to collect unwanted oils. The oil then flows out the discharge tube into any waste oil container for easy disposal.

TubeTastic! removes up to 1.5 gallons of oil per hour, says Abanaki President Tom Hobson, “thereby prolonging the life of the coolant and its efficiency”. The TubeTastic! features a fan-cooled, continuous duty motor and standard collector tubes allowing a reach of 6″, 12″, 18″ and 24″; longer lengths are also available. Units are available in 110 – 220V or 50-60HZ models.
