Save Your Machine Tools From Destruction!

CDR - Cyclonic Debris Removal

DIRTY COOLANT DESTROYS MACHINES. The CDR captures tiny hard sharp particles that stay suspended in a machine tool's coolant and are circulated through the machine whenever pumps are running. Hard sharps are produced by machining the hard oxide layer on cast/forged parts. These hard sharps repeatedly wash over way covers, destroy seals and attack the expensive critical components that keep the machine tool cutting accurately and efficiently.

MADE FOR AUTOMATION. The CDR offers virtually maintenance free coolant filtration because it requires no filter media. Perfect for automated machining running multiple shifts/unattended machining.

PAYS FOR ITSELF OVER TIME. The issues caused by hard sharp contaminated coolant aren't always immediately noticeable, and often go overlooked due to a lack of effective solutions on the market. The CDR is the proven solution to these issues, preventing costly repairs and shutdowns while keeping money in your pocket.

RETURN ON INVESTMENT

Averaging over a CDR’s life, it will typically pay for itself in 2 years.

  • COST OF REPLACING SET OF WAYCOVERS: $5,000-$20,000
  • COST OF REPLACING BALL SCREW/LINEAR GUIDES: Starting at $10,000+ per axis
  • TOOL HOLDERS: $50-$100 each
  • CHUCK: $4,000-$20,000
  • MACHINES RUN IN SEVERE ENVIRONMENTS TYPICALLY NEED A MAJOR REBUILD IN 5-10 YEARS: $150,000
  • COOLANT COST IN & OUT: $450-$1,050 per tank cleanout
  • LABOR COST: $100-$640 per tank cleanout

Damage and maintenance costs increase over time, but wear may not be noticeable until it’s too late.

HOW CDR WORKS

The CDR utilizes four expertly engineered hydrocylcones that separate the hard sharp particles that typically stay suspended in the coolant. The CDR's 3HP pump produces up to 80GPM flow rate in order to quickly capture harmful debris before it is recirculated through the machine.

The debris is separated out, and lands in the settling tank where it can easily be scraped. The clean coolant returns to the machine tool tank, supplying your pumps with fresh coolant and protecting your machine from wear.

Working In Tandem: A CDR Success Story

This shop utilizes automated machining centers that run multiple shifts cutting cast iron parts - in turn creating large amounts of dust that combines with their coolant, creating a nasty sludge

We provided them with a solution: the CDR. They now run the Cyclonic Debris Removal on over 40 machines, preventing unexpected shutdowns caused by clogged coolant lines, starved feed pumps and worn out components. We also decreased the frequency of filter bag changes in our high pressure pump.

"In my eyes, every machine cutting these parts needs a CDR." - Shop Manager

"Cutting the hot finished parts that we do produces a lot of dust which was destroying our machines and blinding off filter bags hourly. Now our machines run longer with almost no unexpected shutdowns for repairs and parts are flying out the door.

In my eyes, every machine cutting cast parts like ours needs a CDR."

Joe. S

Productivity Specialist

"This shop's first CDR unit was installed on a brand new horizontal mill machining aluminum parts.

Within minutes of the first cut, the CDR was already capturing the fine aluminum swarf that would typically build up in the coolant tank and wear the machine over time.

Now we're ordering a CDR for every machine cutting these parts. It's impressive how effective this system is!"
