Skim Oil from Totally Enclosed Machining Centers

Cleveland, OH, August 21, 2007 – Abanaki Corporation, the world leader in oil skimming products, has announced that its low-profile oil skimmer has been redesigned for easier maintenance. Designed to reach inside the coolant sumps of metalworking machines, the improved Tubetastic™! lowers maintenance costs compared to previous models. Animated product demos are available for viewing on the Tubetastic! web page.

The problem-solving Tubetastic!, weighing only six pounds, easily mounts to the side of virtually any machining center coolant sump. The skimmer can skim oil from regular coolant sumps or totally enclosed machining centers. Its side-mounted design allows it to fit into hard to access sumps with little to no top access. 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.


The Tubetastic! removes up to 1.5 gallons of oil per hour, and 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.

The Tubetastic! oil skimmer is just one of many industry-leading products from Abanaki Corporation. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Abanaki has served a global customer base in industries as diverse as iron and steel, wastewater, paper, food processing, automotive, environmental remediation, and recycling for more than 30 years.
