for machine tool industry.

The tube skimmer TubeTastic can be used on machining centers with litte or no access to the coolant sump from above. This unit can be easily mounted on the side of virtually any machining center coolant sump. By use of an existing opening or making a small access cutout, the collector tube runs through the surface of the coolant and collects the unwanted oils. The oil then flows out the discharge tube into any waste oil container for easy disposal.

Operating temperature: max. 60 °C
