The Wogaard Coolant Saver collects the cutting-fluid that is normally wasted through the machine tool's automatic chip conveyor. The cutting fluid is reclaimed from the chip-container and returned to the machine tool's main tank for re-use.
A greener business does not neccessarily mean an increase in operating costs. Environmental concerns should first and foremost be about re-using resources - making more with less. A lot of money can be saved by reducing water-consumption, re-using cutting fluid and recyling consumables.
Easy to install and virtually maintenance free, the Wogaard Coolant Saver is driven by the machine tool's onboard coolant pump and utilises the Venturi Effect to generate a vacuum, so no external energy source is required. Savings can be made not just from waste coolant disposal costs, but also the considerable time spent by employees handling the cutting fluids, and also the chip-containers are dry when emptied, which prevents any spillage.
The Wogaard Coolant Saver is a low-cost solution, ensuring an ROI well below 6 months. Inputting your own figures into our Wogaard Return on Investment Calculator will show how quickly it will pay for itself and start saving you money.
The simple but effective technology of the Wogaard Coolant Saver has been expanded with the introduction of the Wogaard Oil Saver, that has been specifically designed and developed to cope with the higher viscosity neat oil cutting fluids used by some fixed and all sliding headstock turning centres, as well as gear hobbers, broaching, and honing machines.
The Wogaard Oil Saver reclaims neat oil with a viscosity of up to 32 centistokes from the chip bin and returns it to the machine, giving the dual benefits of less oil wastage, and keeping the swarf bins clean. The Wogaard Oil Saver uses the same Venturi method but the design has been modified to generate the vacuum required to draw the displaced cutting fluid back into the machine's sump. Only 0.1 bar is needed to create the vacuum so even the low power pumps fitted to older Swiss-type sliding head lathes can benefit from the installation of an Wogaard Oil Saver.
Customers have accomplished significant cost savings based on emulsion coolant, with ROI achieved within 6 months. Imagine the savings that you can realise with neat oil.
