Cleaner Fluid, Faster

The Chiperator chip and coolant separation system can bring new life to old coolant filled with chips from machine sumps, tanks and parts washers, says Abanaki Corp. The air-driven Chiperator quickly vacuums and filters old cutting fluids loaded with chips out of machine tool sumps into a 55-gallon drum, separates the chips out, and returns clean, filtered coolant to the machine sump – in less than two minutes. It can strain 40 gallons of chips and coolant per minute, and with the disposable filter bags, cleanup is a breeze. Add an optional oil skimmer, and you can cleanse the coolant of tramp oils in the same operation. Phone Abanaki Corp. at (800) 358-7546. E-mail:

More Choice for Viscosity Standards

Cutting-edge Fluid

A biostable micro-emulsion containing no biocides, CLC Coolant CF 66 represents the newest technology in cutting and grinding fluids for the met-alworking industry, boasts the maker.

The trouble-free coolant can extend your coolant life dramatically – up to 50 percent, the com-pany adds. It even rejects tramp oil, just like a syn-thetic, even though it is a high oil-containing micro-emulsion. For information or a free sample, phone (800) 543-0505. Website: E-mail: clclubricants@
