Original Press Release:
January 25, 2005...The new "Mudsucker" coolant filtration system from MSC Filtration Technologies removes solid contaminants from machine tool coolants, straight oil and aqueous based wash solutions, resulting in renewed fluid quality providing longer fluid life and effectiveness, plus, improved parts surface finish, increased tool life and reduced machine tool wear. The portable Mudsucker system utilizes a high flow pump and large bag filter vessel to handle sumps from 20-250 gallon range. The unit can be moved from machine to machine quickly and easily by simply disconnecting the air supply line and moving the included hoses to the next machine tool sump to be cleaned. For increased flexibility, a range of micron ratings are available to suit machining application requirements. The heavy duty air diaphragm pump draws fluid from the sump through the filter bag and return to the machine tool with enough flow and force to clean the tank bottom, eliminating the need for operators or maintenance personnel to rake or shovel chips or sludge from the sump. The Mudsucker is available 15 GPM or 25 GPM models. Each model comes standard with a portable cart, 8 feet of suction hose with quick disconnects, air regulator with 1/4 inch connection and (5) replacement filter bags in micron ranges to suit.
