Reduce waste and disposal costs with the Alfie coolant treatment.
The Alfie 500 is a compact, wheeled separator system that the operator can move from one tank to another. The PLC-based control system is easy to use, and special couplings make it easy to connect and disconnect the hoses quickly when moving the cleaning unit around.
How it Works
The time-tested principles of the centrifugal separator effectively remove contaminants from coolants. The coolant is pumped up from the tank and centrifuged in the separator bowl at speeds of 6,000–10,000 rpm. Centrifugal force pushes the solid particles out to the periphery of the disc stack. There they become trapped on the inner surface of the separator bowl, while the lighter oil is forced toward the centre, where it can then be drawn off. Unlike filters, skimmers, and lamella separators, a centrifugal separator efficiently removes both tramp oil and particles. Due to its high rotation speed, the centrifugal separator cleans up to 10,000 times more effectively than equipment based on gravity alone. Since the centrifugal separator is installed in a bypass flow, cleaning can proceed both during production and when the equipment is idle.
- Reduced tool wear, fewer rejects, and overall improvement in quality
- Cleaning can proceed both during production and when the equipment is idle
- Eliminate odour from bacterial growth
- Reduce the risk of allergic reactions
- Environmental and sustainability benefits
