MP Systems’ VR8 variable volume high pressure coolant system (HPCS) can extend machine tool life, improve part quality, and reduce cycle time. The VR8 is part of MP Systems’ VR series, a line of HPCSs the company launched in late 2016.

The coolant system only uses as much horse power as needed to make set pressure, and the high pressure system automatically adjusts the volume to maintain it, the company says. Variable volume flow adjusts to up to eight gallons per minute. Pressure is adjusted from the VR system’s programmable logic controller and controlled by the cutting machine’s M codes.

VR series programmable pressures range from 250-1000 PSI and systems have 50- or 70-gallon vertical reservoirs, depending on the model. According to the company, they can be used with water or oil-based coolants. All come with two quick-change large capacity filter bags, a machine installation kit, and a two-year parts warranty.
