Fluid recycling solution

The mobile SumpDoc by Eriez provides complete, inline fluid recycling for machine tools operating in three simple steps. The operator selects each mode starting with Sump Vac mode, moving to Filtration Mode and then to Coolant Makeup Mode. When the sump tank reaches the desired concentration level, the process is complete. The SumpDoc is completely portable, allowing operators to drop in the hoses, complete a full cycle, and move on to the next machine tool sump or parts washer to be cleaned.
