Recycling Processes for a Variety of Fluid Types and Applications

We have worked on recycling projects for a variety of fluid types and metalworking applications. Here are some of the most common fluids and the typical recycling process for each.

Hydraulic Oil/Lube Oil – solids are the most common type of contamination and are usually removed with filters. When water is the major contaminate centrifuges and vacuum dehydrators are typically the best solution. The reclamation process is chosen based on the amount of water contamination present, the level of dryness required, and if there is any particulate contamination.

  • Heavy Water Contamination down to 1000 PPM – Batch Process
  • Heavy Water Contamination down to 100 PPM – Batch Process
  • Light Water Contamination down to 200 PPM – Batch Process
  • Light Water Contamination down to 200 PPM – Dialysis/Machine Side Process

Cutting Oil/Honing Oil – Solid contaminates are the major area of concern for these oils. The processes used vary based on the concentration of contaminates. We can set up batch process or a dialysis/continuous process to recycle these fluids depending on the client’s needs.

Low Solids – Filtration is the most common method where the level of solids is low. For small metallic particles, a magnetic separator can be used effectively. Solids retaining centrifuges are also an excellent choice when cost effective.

High Solids – When there is a high level of solids in the fluid, self-cleaning or indexing filters are typically used. Self-cleaning centrifuges are also an effective way to remove solids from these fluids.

Stamping Fluids – Solids and tramp oils are the major contaminants for stamping fluids. The processes used to remove contaminates vary based on the fluid concentration, volume of fluid and time requirements. We have designed both Batch Recycling Processes and completely automated, Continuous Stamping Fluid Recycling Processes.

Low Solids/Tramp oil – Filtration is the most common method where the level of solids is low. For small metallic particles a magnetic separator can be used effectively. Solids retaining centrifuges are also an excellent choice when cost effective. Tramp oil is typically removed using oil/water separators combined with surface skimmers.

High Solids/Tramp oil – When there is a high level of solids and tramp oil in the fluid, self-cleaning or indexing filters are typically used. Self-cleaning centrifuges are also an effective way to remove solids from these fluids.
