Zero Floor Space Required to Keep Machine Coolant Clean

Keller Products has introduced the compact PFA-0507 dedicated pump/filter unit for removing chips and fines from coolant on a continuous basis. This compact system can be mounted directly to the machine tool. The PFA-0507 can recirculate up to 10 GPM and filter down to 1 micron. If tramp oil removal is required, the Keller TKO-6 unit can be combined with the CLO-1 magnetic mounting bracket. The TKO-6 system can handle up to 180 GPH. It will filter out floating chips as well as remove tramp oil. The patented tramp oil separator can be run whe...

Improved Stamping Lubricant Performance Test Developed

IRMCO Stamping Lubricants, through a cooperative partnership with Bennett Tool & Die (Nashville, TN), has developed a tool and test method to directly compare stamping lubricant performance prior to use in production. IRMCO's iTOOL cup-draw process measures and compares frictional forces and deformation temperatures of one or more lubricants compared to the incumbent lubricant. Customer-supplied metal blanks are used to evaluate lubricants to assure the closest correlation to actual production conditions experienced in the field. Hous...

Efficient Removal of Graphite from Metalworking Fluids

"When machining cast iron, chip removal from coolant is only part of the challenge," said a Flow Pro spokesperson. "Graphite released from the machining process quickly fouls traditional filtration media, preventing flow. As a result, concentration of these particles along with the iron particles increases to a point where large volumes of sludge build up in tank bottoms, lines and machine bases, necessitating manual cleaning and shutting down production. Coolant life is reduced and disposal costs escalate. Effective removal of g...
