Cleaning a sump today no longer means shutting down the machine for a half a day while someone bails the slimy coolant from the sump with a bucket. Sump cleaning, using a high-vacuum sump cleaner, can be done in a matter of minutes.

CECOR’s small propane-powered sump cleaner delivers pumping without electric outlets or air drops, the company says. The high suction lift removes coolant, chips and sludge from the sump. Sump contents pass through a filter that separates solids from the coolant. The pump filters coolant back to the machine tool or transport for batch processing. The large-capacity filter holds 5 cubic feet of solids.

The 20-hp propane engine powers the pump for fast removal of coolants and solids, the company says. Lobe type, positive displacement pump generates suction to 13” mercury with a pumping rate up to 110 gpm. Efficient overhead cam and valve design and pressure lubrication provide maximum power and torque. Dependable electronic ignition are said to ensure fast, easy starts.

The sump cleaner tank is mounted on the PL “push, lift” base. The PL base allows the sump cleaner to turn corners tightly, circle smoothly and move through the plant fast – even when fully loaded. Unit can be maneuvered by one person or transported with a forklift. Six wheels (two rigid and four swivel) provide extra mobility in tight places. Longitudinal sleeves have two-way entry for forklift transport. Featured tank size is 175 gallons. Other tank sizes are available.
