Product News and more
The March issue of Cutting Tool Engineering has an article about the importance of keeping your machine tool sump clean or the “smelly truth” according to Kip Hanson, the author.
A dirty coolant sump can cause all kinds of problems, from dermatitis to part quality. Cleaning dirty sumps without the proper tools can be a time-consuming and costly endeavor. Solutions discussed include oil skimmers, sump cleaners (the Sump Shark!) and dedicated recycling systems.
Dump Carts Using Rotating Fork Attachment
A rotating fork attachment for your forklift is a great way for emptying heavy loads. CECOR Carts can be fitted with forklift pockets built into the cart base to engage the forks from the rotating attachment. Loaded carts can be easily pushed and maneuvered by one person or picked up and transported by fork lift.

Regal Machine Recycles Coolant & Cuts Cleaning Time with a Sump Shark
With over 50 machine tools, cleaning machine sumps was a time-consuming job for the staff of Regal Machine in Wyoming, MN. They used an air pump and a 55-gallon drum to empty the sumps and then cleaned up the chips and fines manually. Because it was a messy, unpleasant job, it wasn’t being done often enough. Chips and swarf in the coolant caused bacteria to grow. The coolant was not recycled, but hauled off by a service and new coolant was put in the machines.
Solution: CECOR Sump Shark SE50-175PT
Last May, Regal Machine added an SE50-175PT Sump Shark sump cleaner to the plant line-up. The SE50 extra-power unit pumps up to 110 gallons per minute. Don Eberhardt, the shop foreman, sums up the change. “Now we can filter the coolant and replace it in about 15 minutes average. Before it took hours and we did not recycle”. With a suction lift of 13 Hg, the Sump Shark sucks coolant, chips and sludge from the machine tool sump. See more.
