Excess oil in manufacturing processes can have detrimental effects to overall operations, as it:
- Shortens the life of machining coolant
- Can result in costly equipment malfunctions and maintenance
- Can affect the quality of finished parts
Fortunately, there is a solution.
Oil skimming can save manufacturers thousands of dollars in maintenance issues and ensure that finished products are the best quality possible.
Oil skimmers remove tramp oil from coolant or parts-washing solutions before it can cause problems downstream. The process is easy to execute, affordable and can provide multiple benefits to those in the manufacturing industry. Below, we’ve highlighted three key ways oil skimming directly contributes to a smoother manufacturing process.
