Mixing and Distribution
Mixing of metalworking coolants doesn’t need to be a messy, time consuming operation. We have a range of solutions from simple venturi mixers for 20L pails and barrels to digital controlled automatic pumped mixing systems capable of pumping to 30M head and 400M pipe distances. Coolant can be dispensed locally through the dispensing gun or a coolant distribution pipework, sensing demand from anywhere in the line and automatically operating through retractable hose reels positioned on walls or stanchions.
Each hose can be extended up to 30M giving access to every machine sump. Lubriserv can also offer bespoke mixing units for other water-soluble products such as quenching oils, water glycols, anti-freeze etc.
LUBRIMIX 3000 Operation
Via a water pump, fresh water is pumped through the mixing unit into the emulsion tank. During the mixing process, a pre-set quantity of concentrate is added to the fresh water. When the emulsion tank is full, the floating switch in the emulsion tank will switch off the water pump. The water level in the system separator (backflow preventer) is also controlled by a level switch, which opens the fresh water supply as required. The mixed emulsion is then pumped to the individual CNC machines via the supply pump. When no top up is required – the coolant top up valve/nozzles are shut, a pressure and flow monitor will automatically switch off the supply pump. As the fresh water reduces in the water tank it is refilled automatically by means of the floating switch valve, allowing the machine to be operated continuously.
