Do you have an oil water separator that you don’t use to its capacity due to poor skimming techniques? Do you have a coolant recycling system that has been abandoned due to the centrifuge or coalescer not working or requiring too much ongoing maintenance? With the assistance of our SmartSkim technologies, you can greatly enhance existing equipment and make it a productive part of your facility again.
“As customers come to us looking for solutions to remove contaminants from their industrial fluids, we often find that they already have equipment in their facility that could be used in creating a solution with the assistance of some retrofitting from our technology,” commented Bill Gimbel, V.P. of Sales for SmartSkim. “We make the best skimmers and separators in the industry. However, if a customer has already invested in a previous piece of equipment, they usually don’t want to completely walk away from that investment. Oftentimes they end up buying our skimmer to use with the separator that they purchased elsewhere. While we would have preferred to sell them the entire SmartSkim system, we know that they are now utilizing their previous investment. When they go to buy that next oil water separator system, they will come to SmartSkim for the entire package. This also fits into our philosophy of having long-term relationships with our customers.”
In addition to bringing life to underutilized oil water separators, SmartSkim has done extensive work with equipment used to recycle machining coolants. SmartSkim has been able to re-start systems that were shut-down due to the high cost of maintenance. Coolant recycling systems with centrifuge technology often sit idle due to a maintenance staff’s inability to keep up with the constant cleaning requirements of centrifuges. “We’ll replace the centrifuge with our low maintenance, all stainless steel coalescer. Customers notice no real change in performance, but a significant reduction in maintenance,” commented Gimbel. “We also have rare-earth magnetic products that do a great job of removing metallic fines. Metallic fines can do extensive damage to tooling if not removed from dirty coolant. Many older recycling systems were built prior to today’s rare-earth technologies.”
