Now available from Compressed Air Australia , EXAIR’s new 110 Gallon Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean large coolant sumps.
These Chip Trappers remove solids such as chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids, allowing coolant that once lasted only six weeks to now last six months, or more. Chip Trappers are ideal for use on machines with sumps, parts washers, tanks and storage containers.
Metal chips in a machine sump can block the intake of the coolant pump which reduces the coolant flow and causes heat-related damage to the expensive parts and tooling. Regular cleaning of the coolant sump with a chip trapper eliminates this problem, the lost production, and downtime.
The compressed air powered Chip Trapper vacuums the dirty coolant or liquid into the included 110 gallon drum, trapping all the solids in a reusable filter bag. With a simple turn of the flow valve, clean liquid pumps back out.
The Chip Trapper has no motors or impellers to clog or wear out and safe operation is assured with built-in pressure/vacuum relief. An automatic safety shutoff also prevents spills or overfilling.
The Model 6198-110 chip trapper for coolant maintenance includes:
- stainless steel two-way pump
- directional flow valve
- 110 gallon drum
- lever lock drum lid
