Pump/Skimmer Unit With Magnetic Frame

The Keller TKO-6 compact pump/skimmer for individual machine tool sumps can be mounted on the machine using the CLO-1 magnetic frame, which saves floor space. The pump/skimmers rapidly remove tramp oil, suspend solids from the coolant and aerate the coolant by continuous recirculation, using a high flow rate, ½" air-operated diaphragm pump.

The Keller TKO-6 compact pump/skimmer for individual machine tool sumps can be mounted on the machine using the CLO-1 magnetic frame, which saves floor space. The pump/skimmers rapidly remove tramp oil, suspend solids from the coolant and aerate the coolant by continuous recirculation, using a high flow rate, ½" air-operated diaphragm pump.

To set up the separator on the frame, position the magnetic frame on the machine tool, and place the TKO separator in the frame. Then, connect a ¼" compressed air line, an inlet hose and a provided outlet hose. Setup time is about 5 minutes.

The skimmer pumps oily coolant from the surface of the sump, separates the chips and tramp oil and continuously recirculates the coolant at 180 gallons per hour. The high recirculation rate turns over a sump rapidly, aerating the coolant and ensuring that there are no stagnant areas of the sump in which oil and solids can accumulate. The separator may be run when the machine tool is operating or is idle.

The company’s permanent coalescing oil separator element is designed to never need changed or serviced, and a compact floating inlet device compensates automatically for changes in the coolant level in the sump.
