SCROUNGER™ Oil Skimmer

Effectively Remove Oil from Coolants and Washing Solutions

SCROUNGER™ Oil Skimmer

Tramp oil is a major source of problems associated with water miscible cutting and grinding fluids.

Tramp oil contributes to the growth and formation of:

  • coolant-destroying bacteria
  • undesirable residues on machine tools and workpieces
  • smoke and oil mist in shop atmospheres

These problems result in:

  • shortened coolant life
  • poor material removal rates
  • poor surface finish and size control
  • decreased tool and wheel life

Numerous devices ("floating ropes," wheels, and belts) have been developed over the years to remove "free floating" tramp oil from the surface of coolant. While they have all worked to one degree or another, they generally have been either "troublesome," high maintenance, relatively ineffective, or able to operate only on limited liquid level fluctuations.

As a ";belt-type" skimmer, these units are effective in removing floating oil from widely fluctuating liquid levels of coolants or parts washing solutions. The SCROUNGER™ features a revolutionary new oleophilic belt and a totally new concept of stripping the separated oil from the belt. The SCROUNGER™ Jr. uses the same "oil loving" belt, but uses a more compact scraper blade to strip the separated oil from the belt.

Features

  • 115 volt, single phase, 50/60 Hz
  • heavy-duty, impedence-protected, fan-cooled drive motor with hardened shaft and needle bearings (220 volt, single phase, 50 Hz also available)
  • open, accessible oil-collecting tray with a convenient drain connector
  • "oil loving" oleophilic belt (purchased separately)
  • heavy-duty steel construction, with industrial-grade enamel paint

Benefits

  • fast, simple belt changing
  • low maintenance
  • lower hang roller that will not fall off in the machine sump even in turbulent conditions

Options

  • dewatering tray
  • portable kit
  • special length belts available on special order
  • special belt materials available for high temperature or pH applications on special order

SCROUNGER™ Belts (purchased separately)

  • all belts 3" [76mm] wide
  • two foot hang: total length 70" [1780mm]
  • three foot hang: total length 94" [2390mm]
  • four foot hang: total length 118" [3000mm]
  • six foot hang: total length 166" [4220mm]

      Tramp Oil Terminator™

      Developed to meet the needs of the small metalworking plant for a compact, portable, high-speed centrifuge, tramp oil separator, the Tramp Oil Terminator™ will process both water-miscible coolants and aqueous cleaners to remove free and emulsified tramp oils, providing clean and reusable coolants and cleaners. Removing tramp oils (hydraulic oils, way lubes or any undesirable oil) from coolants and cleaners removes a food source for bacteria, reduces undesirable residues, and reduces smoke and oil mist in the shop atmosphere.

      Benefits

      • Extended life of coolants and cleaners
      • Improved machining
      • Longer tool life

      Features

      • Compact and portable for machine tool sumps and parts washers
      • Simple operation
      • High-speed, disc-bowl centrifuge
      • Stainless-steel hood and bowl
      • Built-in clean fluid centripetal discharge pump
      • Easy dismantling of bowl for cleaning
      • Quick disconnects on feed and discharge
      • Strainer and 50 micron cleanable pre-filter
      • Air pump and floating skimmer for feed
      • Automatic shut off when tramp oil collection tank is full
