In certain applications, proper removal of tramp oil can prove difficult due to limited access to the sump. Oil contamination issues often result in downtime, maintenance, bacteria growth, and costly replacement of coolants and wash water.
For applications like these, where limited space or access doesn't allow for the installation of a Brill® tube-type oil skimmer, Oil Skimmers, Inc. has developed the CoolSkim® Oil Water Separator. The CoolSkim coalescer efficiently and effectively removes tramp oil from coolant systems and parts washers to:
- Extend the life of coolants and wash water
- Avoid frequent, costly coolant replacement and spent coolant disposal charges
- Eliminate the source of bacteria growth to keep employees safe and prevent foul odors
- Extend the life of machine tools by using cleaner coolant
- Improve the finishing process and performance of washed parts by using cleaner wash solutions
- Decrease the need for chemicals or detergents in wash solutions
How Does it Work?
The CoolSkim Oil Water Separator is an efficient and effective coolant and wash water management system that removes tramp oil from the surface of coolant sumps and parts washers, extending the life of coolants and wash water, and eliminating bacteria growth in the sump.
An optional, submersible electric, or air-operated double diaphragm pump brings a continual flow of the contaminated liquid from the coolant or wash water sump into to the Coolskim unit.
The solution flows into the CoolSkim and through the coalescing media pack to accelerate separation. Free oil rises to the surface, forming a distinct layer, and it is captured and drained away using an adjustable surface funnel. The funnel can be set to varying heights to dictate how much of the surface oil flows to the oil discharge port. The oil gravity drains to a collection vessel and oil-free water or coolant is returned to the application via the coolant discharge port.
Features of the CoolSkim™:
- Rugged, stainless steel construction
Built to last in harsh environments
- Adjustable Funnel Weir
Height of the funnel shaped weir can be fine tuned to your application by taking a larger or smaller cut of the surface oil inside the unit
- Floating 3-Ball Weir Intake
Brings the surface oil from your sump in to the CoolSkim unit
- Works with Air or Electric Pumps
Electric/submersible or air-operated double diaphragm pumps are available
- Small Footprint
Standard unit measures 22" (L) x 6" (W) x 16" (H)
Unit size, features and material of construction can be completely customized for your specific application
Can be mounted on a cart for easy movement from one machine or sump to another
- Removable Coalescing Media Pack
Easily remove the coalescing pack for simple cleaning and maintenance
- Easy to Install and Maintain
With very little setup, the CoolSkim is ready to go to work, out of the box
The CoolSkim is comprised of a stainless steel tank (fittings and valves pre-assembled), baffles, coalescing media pack, adjustable internal funnel weir, and a see-through removable lid.
The use of the CoolSkim to remove tramp oils is beneficial in every phase of coolant use, treatment, and disposal. The CoolSkim is effective for all size reservoirs and has demonstrated that it can extend the life of wash water, coolants and machine tools.
