ALMCO KleenTec, Inc.’s SSC-40 and DSC-40 centrifuge systems separate fine particulate from water-based solutions in most metal parts deburring equipment. The systems can be purchased with new equipment or retrofitted to nearly any deburring machine in the field and can solve long-standing, costly recycling problems and improve cleaning performance, according to the company. The systems produce waste in the form of clay-type material that is reported to be environmentally safe with no special removal or disposal restrictions. Depending on the application, the filtered liquid can be sent back to the machine for reuse, or to drain. Residue removed from the liquid is discharged to a container for disposal as solid waste.The SSC-40 single-stage model is suitable for most small vibratory finishing applications with plastic or ceramic media, and the DSC-40 dual-stage model is available for higher-efficiency cleaning. The DSC model incorporates two centrifuge units and is a closed-loop system with liquid passing from the first to the second for further cleaning. It can handle waste material from more than one deburring machine (or machine tool). Both models can process up to 40 gallons of incoming liquid per hour and are equipped with PLC controls.
