Do you spend too much time cleaning out your CNC machine? Do you find that It is messy and backbreaking work? Do you spend too much money replacing the coolant in your system? If you answered yes to any of these, EXAIR has a product for you; the Chip Trapper System.
EXAIR created this product to reduce the down time and extend the life of your coolant. This device will save you money and time with productivity, coolant, and repairs. In this blog, I will go over some of the features and benefits with the Chip Trapper Systems.
EXAIR offers two types, the Chip Trapper and the High Lift Chip Trapper. They are designed to move fluid into the drum to be filtered, and to allow the clean fluid to be placed back into the sump. The Chip Trapper works great for quick coolant cleaning at the floor level. The High Lift Chip Trapper is ideal for cleaning viscous fluids as well as for reservoirs below the floor level.
Both types use a pneumatic two-way pump to move the fluid. They come in three different drum sizes, 30 Gallon, 55 Gallon, and 110 Gallon. So, you can clean large sump tanks with only one cycle through the cleaning system. They come standard with a 5-micron bag filter that can hold over 5 gallons of material.
EXAIR can also offer filter bags in 5 other micron ranges from 1 micron up to 200 micron. And if you are not sure on the other filtration ranges, EXAIR offers a filter sample pack, model 901060-SP, that includes one of each type.
Take a look at this customer Video as they use the Chip Trapper to do their yearly deep clean and coolant Swap on their CNC Mill! (The Chip Trapper is used starting at the 3:17 mark in the video). This is also a very good video for further education on coolants and equipment.
When your machine is not operating, your productivity is lost. The EXAIR Chip Trapper Systems can be that product for you to get you back up and running is a short period of time, extend your coolant life, and keep the area clean and safe.
For U.S. and Canadian customers, EXAIR offers a 30-day unconditional guarantee to try.
