This pump/filter unit is designed to eliminate manual cleaning of chips and sludge from machine tool sumps that use cutting oil or water based coolants, the manufacturer says. It has a recirculation rate of 20 gallons per minute, the unit cleans settled sludge and suspended chips from a typical sump (40 to150 gallons) in about 30 minutes.

The pump/filter is portable and can be easily moved from one sump to another in the shop. A 1/4" compressed air line is needed to operate the pump/filter. No electricity is necessary.

The self-priming pump pulls cutting oil or coolant from the sump through a vacuum hose, and then through a bag filter that removes chips and sludge as fine as 5 microns. The filtration process is done with the cutting oil or coolant in the machine so routine maintenance can be performed without taking the machine off-line. The diaphragm pump has a suction lift of 15' and may be run dry or dead-ended without damage.
