C.R.O.S.S. Coolant Recycling System

Make Contaminated Coolant a Thing of the Past

Instead of shouldering the burden of contaminated coolant yourself, let our Coolant Recovery Oil Separation System (C.R.O.S.S) handle it for you.

Our advanced coolant management solution meets the rigorous demands of CNC operations and other machining processes. The self-contained, compact system automates the removal of free-floating and mechanically dispersed tramp oils, suspended solids, and bacteria from contaminated coolants. This eco-friendly turnkey system will simplify your operations, improve sustainability, and save you money.

C.R.O.S.S. Benefits By The Numbers

99.75%

C.R.O.S.S. removes 99.75% tramp oils and particulates by volume.

Remove Contaminants

C.R.O.S.S. filters coolants and separates oils for CNC machining tools with individual coolant reservoirs.

Designed for high-performance environments, the system ensures thorough particulate and tramp oil removal through a three-step process to preserve fluid quality and extend tool lifespan.

Features Include:

  • Rugged Construction. Steel construction with chemical-resistant coating suited for industrial applications.
  • Ready to Use. Just hook up electrical power and a water supply for the coolant proportioner.
  • Three-Step Process. Pre-filtration process removes large particulate matter, secondary filtration removes free-floating, loosely emulsified tramp oil, and a polishing filter removes fine particulate. 
  • Precise Operation. High-grade coalescing media and a precision-engineered separation chamber extracts oils down to 0.25% by volume.
  • Automatic Operation. Automated coolant proportioner maintains ideal fluid levels and monitors and controls coolant concentration.
  • Sustainable. Ozone generator injects ozone into recycled coolant to control bacteria and odors.
  • Small Footprint. Compact design fits into industrial plants of all sizes.

45% - 85%
