EXAIR's Model 6198 Chip TrapperTM

Chip TrapperTM offers a fast, easy way toclean chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. TheChip Trapper vacuums the coolant or liquid that is filled with debris and trapsall the solids in a reusable filter bag. Only the liquid pumps back out. It isideal for use on machines with sumps, parts washers, tanks and storagecontainers of contaminated liquids. Machine tools discharge chips and shavingsinto the coolant sump that can restrict coolant flow and clog the coolantnozzles. This results in heat damage to the part and expensive tooling. A halfday of lost production is spent unclogging the coolant nozzles, cleaning themachine, and replacing the coolant. Regular cleaning of the coolant sump withthe Chip Trapper removes the unwanted solids from the coolant to eliminate thisvery costly problem. It also dramatically cuts new coolant costs and disposalfees since the coolant that used to last only six weeks can now last 6 months ormore. In a matter of several minutes, the Chip Trapper cleans up the coolant byeliminating the chips and rancid smell caused by bacteria growth. Chip Trapperis easy to use since there is no mechanical change over required to fill orempty the drum (uses the simple turn of a knob and directional valve). Thereusable filter bag is easily removed when full. The $1,275 price is a fractionthat of the big, bulky sump cleaners that cost thousands of dollars.
