Coolant literally is the lifeblood of machine shops. Because its composition changes through extended usage—breaking down through organic and inorganic contamination—coolant needs to be tested regularly in order to maintain peak effectiveness. Abanaki offers comprehensive lab testing and analysis of coolant for a wide range of applications. The new Abanaki coolant testing service can make the difference between profit and loss by ensuring proper physical and pH levels, and eliminating any potential hazards to machinery and operators.

The Montana Refining Company is a sophisticated, 10,000-barrel a day crude oil refiner capable of producing gasoline, jet fuel, or even asphalt, and, like most large-scale high capacity plants, requires process optimization and advanced process controls.
Stephen Kind, who has been a Reliability Engineer at the Montana Refining Company for 18 years, says the company’s number one goal is “to produce fuels as economical and environmentally friendly as possible.”
How to Recapture 100% Hydrocarbon
Kind needed to find a method for capturing and transferring oil from water in the plant sewers before sending it to the municipal wastewater facility that would replace their current manual process. In researching water/oil remediation technology he found Abanaki Incorporated, an Ohio-based company that specializes in oil removing technology.
Stephen Kind chose the Abanaki Oil Grabber Model MB 5 x 8 because of its ability to remove large amounts of hydrocarbons with no water pickup.
