What Happens To Coolant?
Coolant does not “break down” per se. However, the machining process does introduce contaminants into the coolant. In addition, coolant provides an environment for bacteria, resulting in the “rotten eggs” smell of used coolant. Ever increasing local, state and federal regulations make the cost of disposal of used coolant prohibitive in many cases. Recycling coolant thus becomes an attractive option and will extend coolant life while decreasing coolant disposal costs, replacement costs, coolant breakdown, and tramp oil build up.
The Solution: COMO Filtration Systems
Through the process of coalescence (causing contaminants to bind together or “coalesce”) coolant life can be extended, disposal costs drastically reduced and the machining process made more efficient. In this way coolant recycling positively impacts production and profit.
