CECOR Makes Your Least Favorite Task Less Messy

We all know the sump cleaning task, without the right tools, should be a part of Mike Rowe’s dirty job series. Many machine coolant removal methods are sloppy and slow. Using a hand pump or shop vac to collect the fluid also requires a pail and shovel to remove the sludge. This method also has a high potential for a few stops along the way to unclog the shop-vac hose. It’s easy to understand why so many companies put off sump cleaning for as long as possible.

Delaying CNC sump cleaning can be costly. Dirty machine coolant is rife with bacteria that poses a hazard to workers and the part that is being machined. Contaminated coolant can also damage and depreciate your machines more quickly.

CECOR’s Sump Shark takes the edge off the cleaning process, . It might even make things too easy for Mike Rowe’s dirty job series. Each Sump Shark purchase includes a set of specialized cleaning tools designed to make cleaning out a CNC sump faster, smarter and safer. The three cleaning tools included with every new sump cleaner are:

CECOR sump cleaners’ suction lift achieves from 13”to 26” of mercury, depending on model. The most powerful sump cleaners in industry. This is enough power to remove even the heaviest sludge.
