The SmartSkim CF-20 CrossFlow Separator is a double plate pack design utilizing the same performance reliability as the standard CrossFlow Separator in operation in metal-working plants around the world. When you need a higher processing rate for tank turnover and/or surface skimming, or require greater oil removal capabilities for larger systems, the CF-20 is built to last.
“We’ve experienced a decrease in tooling usage, lower maintenance requirements, higher coolant efficiency, and an all-around increase in quality of work life. Our machining facility no longer smells like a machine shop; the control we now have on bacteria growth and overall cleanliness of our machines is above and beyond our previous conventional practices.”
Z Fehler, Manufacturing Engineer
The SmartSkim CF-20 CrossFlow Separator is designed as a simple, trouble-free solution for removing free floating and mechanically dispersed tramp oils from large wash tanks, individual machine coolant sumps, central coolant systems, and many other manufacturing process fluids.
Based on gravity flow and coalescence, the CF-20 Separator can reduce tramp oils to less than 1% in a single pass. The SmartSkim “non-clogging” design allows for the separation of oils and settling of solids in one step. Applications include water soluble, semi-synthetic & synthetic coolants from machining and grinding, rolling and drawing coolants, alkaline and acidic washwaters, stamping fluids, wastewater pre-treatment, aqueous quench pits, die casting mold release fluids, and any application where separation of two immiscible fluids is required.
Our multi-patented SmartSkim Suction skimmer is mounted in your tank and continuously removes the topmost oily layer. Skimmed oily fluids are pumped through the separator where floating contaminants are separated. Clean fluids return by gravity to the source tank. Inside the SmartSkim CF-20, there is no plastic coalescer media, filters, or consumables of any kind.
Our proprietary open channel platepack system separates and removes floating oils and solids by gravity only. This makes maintenance fast and easy. Open channels do not plug. SmartSkim systems just run and run. Oil that is captured inside the separator gravity drains to an oil collection drum. This oil is typically dry enough to sell or recycle. No electrical panels or hook ups are necessary. Just plug and play!
