 A great time to trial an ALFIE 500 Centrifugal cleaner for treating metal-working fluids With the news recently released by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that dermatitis, asthma and similar illnesses cost the UK metalworking industry millions in lost work days every year, According to a statement from the HSE: "Metal-working fluids can become contaminated making them hazardous when inhaled or when they come into contact with skin.

This can lead not only to illness but also to reduced fluid and tool life and poor machine performance". Alfie 500, the new Alfa Laval machine, has been developed specifically to deal with situations such as this It uses high speed centripetal force to remove tramp oils, grease and solids such as metal fines from cutting fluids and coolants; in other words all of the contaminants that cause dermatitis, eczema and other illnesses

Capable of handling 500 litres of fluid per hour and systems from 100 Litres to 5000 Litres it separates out not only solids down to 1 micron in size but tramp oils too

All of the key operations are controlled and monitored via a PLC-based system, with instructions and data presented in clear, simple-to-follow text message form Alfie 500is a completely self-contained, mobile unit which, once wheeled alongside a coolant/cutting fluid tank and plugged in, starts working immediately

The Alfie system removes more impurities more efficiently than any other system By removing the majority of contaminants, it not only reduces the risk of skin or chest complaints but also dramatically extends the life of the fluid
This significantly reduces the need for new oil, lightens the environmental load and slashes disposal costs into the bargain.

By using an ALFIE 500 you could be: 
    Reducing coolant consumption by 80%
     Increasing tool life substantiall Improving surface finish and tolerance 
    Almost eliminate waste coolant completel 
    Manufacturing cleaner parts - easier to measure, easier to was 
    Reducing downtime 
    Improving the working enviroment - cleaner machines, no odours, lower maintenance.

Reduces tramp oil down to 0.5% and most metal particles down to 1 micron - this is not your conventional tramp oil remover or filter !
