Abstract:B-Line Systems operates both a milling and a machine pressing operation. Both operations require machine tool coolant to help produce a quality product and to enhance the life expectancy of the mill rollers and the press machines. Milling units are equipped with cartridge filtration and tramp oil separators (Images 1, 2, and 3) and presses have coolant sumps that are routinely cleaned out by a "sump sucker." Waste oily water, containing coolant, cutting oils, and tramp oils are collected in either 55- gallon drums or 750-gallon tanks. Approximately 30,000 gallons of oily wastewater is disposed of annually at a cost of $20,000. On February 10, 1999, a technology demonstration project was conducted at 8-Line Systems, Inc. The project successfully demonstrated the use of membrane filtration to separate chemicals in solution, in this case - oil and water.
