Heat Treat operations, especially processes that require quenching with oil, can generate headaches for operators. Large volumes of oil contaminated wastewater, temper furnace smoking, material transfer conveyors and shaker tables becoming sticky are all things we are familiar with.
Suparator can assist in two locations:
- In the pre-wash, before materials are run through the furnace
- In the post-wash removing quenchant prior to tempering.
Suparator’s rapid removal of the large volumes of oil present in the cleaning operations allows them to be more efficient, cleaning many more pounds of material before these baths are consumed and need to be dumped and replaced. In addition, Suparator’s ability to recover this oil with little to no water (<1% typ.) allow reclamation of the quench oil that can save substantially save on quench purchases and waste oil hauling.
