Freddy Vacuum Tramp Oil Skimmer
Tramp oil is probably one of the most common contaminants in metalworking fluids. The term is a catch all for all sources of non-soluble contaminants (usually oil-based) that can come in contact with the metalworking fluid as a function of the process or the equipment. The sources can be one of the following:
Corrosion preventive (from a previous process or carried in on the parts)
Stamping lubricant (from a previous process or carried in on the parts)
Whatever the source, tramp oil is a foreign contaminant that can create the problems such as corrosion and staining, dermatitis, smoking, lubrication issues, or foaming.
It is essential to minimise the oil, ideally to less than 2% of total volume as indicated by the HSE in their MW5 publication.
With the Freddy Vacuum Tramp Oil Skimmer, it is now possible to make any Freddy, no matter the age, into a quick and effective skimming device. No need to wait for hours while the oil coalesces, or the headache of what to do with lots of oil-contaminated paper. Just a faster more ecological way of removing oil.
Connecting to one of the pick-up attachments (you have the choice at the point of order), once the vacuum is switched on it is possible to easily regulate the flow to ensure only oil is collected rather than valuable coolant. Once collected, it is easy to empty out your Freddy into a barrel or IBC for waste.

Freddy Tramp Oil Separator
The Freddy Tramp Oil Separator has been designed to combat the problems associated with tramp oil levels in machine tool coolant systems. Tramp oil can cause a variety of problems both to the finished product and the operator. The Tramp Oil Separator is easily manoeuvrable, so it can be used throughout the factory workshop, and it runs continuously so not to interfere with production, siphoning the tramp oil into the supplied collection bottle, and allowing the cleaned coolant to be returned.
