The Abanaki TubeTastic!™ tube oil skimmer can be used on machining centers with little or no access to the CNC coolant sump from above. TubeTastic can be mounted virtually anywhere through a machine slot or at the top of a tank. This unit can skim oil from chip conveyors or even totally enclosed machining centers!
The collector tube operates by running through the coolant where the clean tube travels into the coolant and oil laden tube travels out. While the tube is in the coolant, oil adheres to the outside of the tube. Then the oil is continuously scraped off and discharged into a waste oil drum.
