Kinefac® Corporation Introduces New Portable Fluid Recovery System
Press release date: September 14, 2006
Kine-Spin/Barrett Division of Kinefac has developed a new portable unit for effectively removing solid contaminants from coolant and lubricant fluids used in grinding, lapping, honing, wire drawing, deep drawing, and other metalworking processes which require clean fluids for effective operation. This compact portable unit applies the proven effectiveness of the Barrett Clarifuge to remove the abrasive swarf, material coating residue, tramp metal particles, and similar contaminants that are generated by the metalworking processes. The Centrifuge and the new Clari-Clean centrifuge bowl cleaner are mounted on a cart and supplied with an 8GPM circulation system. This allows the fluid cleaning operation to be brought to the machine and to operate there until the coolant or lubricant supply and the machine reservoir and sump are restored to satisfactory operating condition.
With this new system the removed contaminants are collected in a standard drum which is located on the cart, and therefore allows the portable fluid recovery unit to perform many machine cleaning operations before it must be returned to the location where contaminants are discarded in a hazard controlled manner. This compact unit is approximately 3 ft. wide and 6 ft. long, and is easily maneuverable in factory aisles.
