The Sanborn Pioneer IFR is a Fully Integrated Fluid Recycling Centrifuge System that is the best available technology metal working coolant recycling and fluid purification. The heart of the Pioneer System is a Mitsubishi self-discharging high-speed disc centrifuge provided for the removal of metal fines and solids down to ≤1-micron range and tramp oil removal down to ≤0.0025%. These systems are excellent to process coolant from either a set of customer-supplied tanks or to process from centralized coolant systems on a “slip stream” dialysis basis.
The Pioneer System is equipped with a hydrocyclone pre-clarifier to remove gross solids and minimize loading on the centrifuge. The pre-clarified coolant is then directed to an economizer to preheat the water-soluble coolant prior to entering a immersion electric heat chamber or pasteurizer where the coolant is heated to 165° F to sterilize the coolant and kill any bacteria and/or fungal growth. The heated coolant is then directed to the centrifuge where an efficient three-phase separation occurs at 9,000-g’s of centrifugal force occurs to remove tramp oil and metal fines, swarf and particulate matter, etc. to ≤1-micron range.The purified coolant is then directed to the economizer to after-cool the coolant and provide thermal exchange to the incoming coolant to reduce the BTUs consumed by 50% during the pre-heating process
The Mitsubishi self-discharging centrifuge will undergo a period self-cleaning mode where the captured solids ae ejected and the centrifuge disc stack is subjected to a clean water flush prior to being placed back on-line. The entire centrifuge processing and self-discharging process is fully automated to minimize operator attention in as much as possible. The separated tramp oil is directed to a 55-gallon drum for further processing or reclamation by a used oil recycling service.
Note: The actual capacity of the Pioneer IFR System will vary depending of the fluid being processed and the % contamination of the fluid processed.
