Eriez HydroFlow’s SumpDoc portable inline fluid reclamation machine’s design has been modified. The updated unit is simple to operate and small and lightweight enough to allow an operator to push SumpDoc quickly and easily from location to location, the company says.

SumpDoc provides coolant restoration and rejuvenation treatment of the metalworking fluids in the machine tool sump with minimal operator interface without interruption in the production cycle or need to transport fluids. The portable machine can be wheeled next to a machine tool, parts washer or rinse tank to provide full-service fluid reclamation in a two-step process.

The main components include: sump cleaner for removal of chips and solids 50 micron and larger, pleated bag filter and housing for removal of solids down to 10-micron, high-speed centrifuge for removal of emulsified tramp oil and fines down to three to five micron, an ozone generator for microbiological treatment of coolants and electrical controls with touchscreen dashboard.
