Reduce costs due to just the overflow problem alone.
On this site we are featuring our Variaxe Oil Skimming System.
Our Variaxe oil skimmer system has many innovative features and benefits including our proprietary skimming belt media. Our system will skim more tramp oil from coolants in less time than competing products in this class. We have superior access to hard to reach places and tramp oil will never overflow on the floor due to our gravity separating pail.
Since the development of our Variaxe Skimming System, we have sold thousands of units and have received our 3rd US Patent for the overall product, and for product components.
Issued Patent numbers are as follows;
US 9,248,388 B1
US 9,848,410 B1
US 10,543,438 B1
The name Variaxe was chosen because of our pivot extension's ability to pivot on a variable axis to allow almost unlimited access to otherwise hard to reach tramp oil locations. There are many more reasons to choose Variaxe for your metalworking fluid program.
We have so many advantages over our competition.
1. Our proprietary tramp oil skimming belt media.
Our system will skim more tramp metalworking fluid oil in less time than competing products in our class due to exceptional ionic attraction of hydrocarbons to the belting material.
2. We provide superior axis controlled access.
You can get into hard to reach areas. places, beside conveyors, up and over partitions, into very small openings down to 3" diameter and more. The pail can also be easily moved slightly to capture oil in the all to common, split sump areas, due to it's portability.
3. Tramp oil will never overflow on the floor.
This is due to our VariClean gravity separating pail. There is a great deal of cost savings from this advantage alone as detailed more in our literature.
4. Fully portable.
You can skim several machines with one unit and due to the portability, OSHA allows extension cords.
5. Semi modular.
You can add the pivot extension if desired at any time to replace the standard hanging belts if so desired.
6. No chip build up on a ramp.
Chips and fines fall into the pail, and we also offer an inexpensive internal bag filter can be added for cast iron or other fine particulates.
7. You can skim other containers
275 gallon totes, recycling tanks, 55 gallon drums and many other containers can be skimmed. You may need to request a custom length belt for you application.
8. Easy to empty pail and clear view so operator can see when the pail needs to be emptied.
You can even discover coolant issues due to phase separation in this pail. Some machine operators are not always diligent with conventional pail maintenance, but managers frequently report that their guys do an exceptional job of maintenance when using our system due to this clear pail feature.
9. You can use them on parts washers.
Our maximum belt temperature rating is 140 degrees. The Variaxe Skimmers work very well around that temperature or under, and parts come out much cleaner when that waste oil is removed from part surfaces.
10. The pricing of our Variaxe is very competitive .
These are just some of the features, benefits and cost savings we offer that others can't offer with their simple conventional products. Save money and time by adding Variaxe to your metalworking fluid program.
Seeing is Believing, or you can ask our distributors and customers that have experienced the Variaxe Skimming System difference!
Our 59 second, time lapse video of the original prototype from 5 years ago. Our first patent was still pending. Now we have 3, US patents. Components are now comprised of, high quality precision machined and water jet cut parts, including 6061 aluminum, stainless steel and steels. We have the most versatile, effective and economical, patented oil skimming system available. It isn't just an alternative, but a better and more effective way to skim tramp oil from machine tool coolant sumps.
This video was not planned or rehearsed. Our proprietary solid round belting exhibits exceptional performance when compared to others and they are very economical. For this reason our system can skim from even longer reaches due to the high ionic attraction of hydrocarbon based products. Kevin represents a well known automotive manufacturing company. He explains some of the features / benefits that all transfer to cost savings. This enthusiasm is common. More testimonials coming soon.
