Prab’s tramp oil separator removes harmful tramp oils from coolant and wash water, improving machine performance, decreasing tool wear and optimizing the effectiveness of cleaning processes and filtering, the company says. Using gravity flow and coalescence, tramp oil separator removes free floating and mechanically dispersed tramp oils from machine sumps, central systems and wash tanks to less than 1 percent in a single pass, helping to prevent wash water system problems associated with harmful contaminants, such as machine downtime, clogging of filters and decreased efficiency.

The separator is engineered for industrial fluid applications to significantly reduce hazardous waste volumes and deliver a return on investment in as little as 6 to 9 months. Depending on the nature of the particular fluid contamination, optional equipment is available to further enhance operational performance. This includes automatic air spargers to remove sludge and solids from the separator, coolant managers, customized electrical controls, and a variety of pre-filtration options to meet specific manufacturing needs.

The tramp oil separator is a cost effective and low maintenance solution to this corporate initiative, effectively accomplishing both of these objectives with a short return on investment. In addition to reducing waste and reusing valuable water, the tramp oil separator can provide a secondary revenue stream for the collected tramp oils, which can also be recycled and reused or sold, further cutting production costs.
