CRS - Coolant Recycling System

A Solution For Filtering Challenging Industrial Fluids


The Coolant Recycling System, based on advanced membrane technology, is designed to recycle machine coolant and metal working fluids, i.e. cutting, grinding, drilling and tapping, and stamping fluids used in manufacturing operations. The system removes suspended solids, emulsified and free tramp oil, and bacteria from coolants while maintaining properties of the recovered coolants for maximum savings. These systems eliminate the down time resulting from frequent cleaner or coolant replacement and significantly reduce the volume of fluid used. More importantly, recycling improves the quality and consistency of finished parts.  For processed fluids with large amount of tramp oil, using a tramp oil separator (CPS) as a pre-treatment would enhance the overall process efficiency.

Features:Benefits:

Advanced membrane technology

  • Removes suspended solids, emulsified and free tramp oil, and bacteria with a single pass
  • Ideal for recycling soluble, semi-synthetic, and synthetic coolants
  • Resists oil fouling
  • Provides high/stable output over the life of the membrane

Solvent Resistant Membrane

Compatible with most hydrocarbons, free oils, acids, and the expansive class of polar organic solvents used in many industrial plants, the membrane can operate at temperatures up to 170 F and is stable through a broad pH range from 2 to 12

Portable System

Able to be moved from one location to another in order to recondition multiple tanks/batches

Automated Operation

  • Reduces maintenance
  • Monitors system performance automatically

High Performance Self-Contained Design

  • Cost Effective
  • Simple operation

Significant Operational Cost Savings

  • Reduces coolant usage up to 95%
  • Improves machine parts quality and reduces parts rework
  • Reduces tooling costs

Reduces Wastewater Volume by 95%

Keeps waste hauling charges down
