Tramp oil is a major source of problems associated with water miscible cutting and grinding fluids.
Tramp oil contributes to the growth and formation of:
These problems result in:
Numerous devices ("floating ropes," wheels, and belts) have been developed over the years to remove "free floating" tramp oil from the surface of coolant. While they have all worked to one degree or another, they generally have been either "troublesome," high maintenance, relatively ineffective, or able to operate only on limited liquid level fluctuations.
As a "belt-type" skimmer, these units are effective in removing floating oil from widely fluctuating liquid levels of coolants or parts washing solutions. The SCROUNGER features a revolutionary new oleophilic belt and a totally new concept of stripping the separated oil from the belt. The SCROUNGER Jr. uses the same "oil loving" belt, but uses a more compact scraper blade to strip the separated oil from the belt.

You'll like ";Hank" and "CJ." They may not sound like experts, but they know how to clean machines — inside and out. And while they won't bore you with the process, they don't skip any steps, either. As a result the 2002 edition of Master fluid Solutions' Machine Cleaning video is instructive, slightly irreverent and completely unorthodox. You'd better request your copy — now!
