The SmartSkim CrossFlow System sets the industry standard for skimming and separating floating oils and solids from industrial fluids. It is designed as a simple, trouble-free solution for removing free floating and mechanically dispersed tramp oils from wash tanks, individual machine coolant sumps, central coolant systems, and many other manufacturing process fluids.
“The SmartSkim system has been installed since the third day we received it. It is working better than I expected it to. It is not only removing the oily residue but also steel fines in the water as well. I am very pleased with the performance. We removed about 300 gallons of oily sludge the first week.”

Based on gravity flow and coalescence, the CrossFlow 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 CrossFlow, 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!
