EXAIR’s new patented High Lift Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean coolant sumps, waste oil pits or wells. High Lift Chip Trapper removes the solids such as chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids with up to 15 feet of lift or 20 feet of horizontal vacuum. Extend the life of coolants and eliminate the worry of waste oil solids damaging equipment.
Metal chips in a machine sump can block the intake of the coolant pump which reduces the coolant flow and causes heat-related damage to the expensive parts and tooling. Regular cleaning of the sump with a High Lift Chip Trapper eliminates this problem, the lost production and downtime.
The compressed, air-powered High Lift Chip Trapper vacuums the dirty liquid into the included drum, trapping all the solids in a reusable filter bag. With a turn of the flow valve, clean liquid pumps back out. There are no motors or impellers to clog or wear out. Safe operation is assured with built-in pressure/vacuum relief and an automatic safety shutoff to prevent spills or overfilling.
The Model 6190 High Lift Chip Trapper is available in 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities. Systems include the stainless steel two-way pump, directional flow valve, drum, lever lock drum lid, shutoff valve, 10' vacuum hose, 20' compressed air hose, chip wand, (2) filter bags and a drum dolly. High Lift Chip Trappers and all industrial vacuums are CE compliant.
Related Glossary Terms
Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.
Space provided behind the cutting edges to prevent rubbing. Sometimes called primary relief. Secondary relief provides additional space behind primary relief. Relief on end teeth is axial relief; relief on side teeth is peripheral relief.
Metal fines and grinding wheel particles generated during grinding.
