VAC-U-MAX 55MW air-operated Industrial Vacuum Cleaner separates coolant from metal chips/debris at 1-2 gallons per second (60-120 GPM). Operators quickly empty machine tool sumps, machining beds, oil/water separators, parts washers, and rinse tanks by vacuuming both coolant and chips directly into the collection container where solid particles are separated from collected liquid with a VAC-U-MAX Chip Basket and Liner.
