Keep the Fluids Moving

Circulation of the sump is as important as any other mechanical method since it keeps things moving, forcing oxygen into the system. Oils have a harder time pooling on the surface, which helps to prevent bacterial biofilms.

If you have any doubt about this strategy, think about how an aquarium works, and why ponds can go stagnant. It may not be feasible to leave the coolant pump on at all times, so instead, a small centrifugal pump can be introduced to the sump to keep the coolant from remaining in a static state. If the machine sump is divided, all baffles should be agitated.

Small aerators can also perform this function if the sump holds 50 gallons or less. Keep in mind any coolant that pools in the lines is affected by the same forces in play. When machine sumps are emptied, cleaned, and recharged, these lines are usually overlooked, and bacterial contamination still exists within the system. Layer of foam Rotten egg smell

Going Green

In Addition to our commitment in going green and conserving the environment. Protech will recycle the used lubricants collected from our customers.

Disposing of used oil the wrong way has the potential to pollute land, water and infrastructure, so we need to recover and recycle as much of it as possible. Consider that it takes only one litre of oil to contaminate one million litres of water and a single automotive oil change produces 4 to 5 litres of used oil.

Used oil, or 'sump oil' as it is sometimes called, should not be thrown away. Although it gets dirty, used oil can still be cleaned and re-used. In fact, recycled used oil can be used as an industrial burner fuel, hydraulic oil, incorporated into other products or re-refined back into new lubricating oil.

Finally, both floating and sinking chips should be removed so they do not interact with the chemical components of the fluid to cause premature failure. Although most of the material sinks the bottom, even if a conveyor is in operation, they will interact with any fluids that they touch. A shovel or industrial vacuum may be used to remove the larger, sinking chips.

A general filtration system should be used regularly to remove all others. Some floating chips may be filtered via a coalescing unit with this capability, however, very fine chips, such as 5-25ยต in size, should be removed after the oil has separated, or re-emulsion can occur
