    Features

    • Heavy-duty drum cover to fit on standard 55 U.S. gallon (205 liter) open top drums
    • Air venturi vacuum generator
    • Positive sealing mechanical float for drum overfill protection

      Reversible LIQUI-VAC™

      For Sump Cleaning

      Reversible LIQUI-VAC™

      Removing spent coolants, waste fluids, or oils from machine sumps, reservoirs, or storage tanks is usually just plain bothersome. Inexpensive vacuums will not do a satisfactory job, are quite loud, and are not built for the industrial environment. Now, the Reversible LIQUI-VAC™ provides the solution to your sump cleaning problems. It is small enough to fit in your hand, yet it sucks up tramp oils, used oils, and waste coolants fast and simple. This unit will also discharge fluids out of the drum into a separate container if desired with just the turn of a knob.

      Features

      • operates on shop air
      • attaches to small bung on a standard drum
      • has one moving part
      • requires no maintenance
      • has whisper quiet exhaust

      The Reversible LIQUI-VAC™ comes in a kit that includes everything you need to start using it the very first day. The standard kit includes:

      • venturi unit
      • 1" x 10' (38mm. X 3 mL) suction hose
      • drum standpipe adapter
      • quick disconnect fittings
      • air control valve
      • safety shut-off valve

        MISCO Palm Abbe™ Digital Refractometer

        Laboratory Precision in the Palm of Your Hand!

        MISCO Palm Abbe™ Digital Refractometer

        The new Palm Abbe is a fourth-generation digital handheld refractometer that puts laboratory precision in the palm of your hand. Not just laboratory precision, but laboratory precision for the price of a traditional analog refractometer. It is exactly the kind of bold, cutting-edge technology you would expect from MISCO, the company that pioneered the digital handheld refractometer.

        The Palm Abbe refractometer is fast, convenient, and easy to use. Simply place a drop or two of fluid in the titanium well and press a button. The custom-designed microprocessor delivers a nearly instantaneous readout in degrees Brix. Nonlinear temperature compensation is automatic and insures that fluids read between 0°C and 50°C (32°F to 122°F) are measured accurately.

        The large LCD display is easily read, even in dim light, and removes the subjectivity associated with interpreting where a boundary line crosses tiny scale divisions. And, it is so easy to use! The user interface consists of two buttons, one to take readings and the other to step through various menu options.

        Calibration is automatic and does not require the use of special calibration solutions, or tools. The Palm Abbe refractometer automatically calibrates itself to water and is ready to use in seconds. No more screws to turn and nothing to adjust.

            SCROUNGER® Jr Oil Skimmer

            Effectively Remove Oil from Coolants and Washing Solutions

            SCROUNGER<sup>®</sup> Jr Oil Skimmer

            Tramp oil is a major source of problems associated with water miscible cutting and grinding fluids.

            Tramp oil contributes to the growth and formation of:

            • coolant-destroying bacteria
            • undesirable residues on machine tools and workpieces
            • smoke and oil mist in shop atmospheres

            These problems result in:

            • shortened coolant life
            • poor material removal rates
            • poor surface finish and size control
            • decreased tool and wheel life

            Numerous devices ("floating ropes," wheels, and belts) have been developed over the years to remove "free floating" tramp oil from the surface of coolant. While they have all worked to one degree or another, they generally have been either "troublesome," high maintenance, relatively ineffective, or able to operate only on limited liquid level fluctuations.

            As a "belt-type" skimmer, these units are effective in removing floating oil from widely fluctuating liquid levels of coolants or parts washing solutions. The SCROUNGER® features a revolutionary new oleophilic belt and a totally new concept of stripping the separated oil from the belt. The SCROUNGER® Jr. uses the same "oil loving" belt, but uses a more compact scraper blade to strip the separated oil from the belt.

            Features

            • 115 volt, single phase, 50/60 Hz
            • heavy-duty, impedence-protected, fan-cooled drive motor with hardened shaft and needle bearings (220 volt, single phase, 50 Hz also available)
            • open, accessible oil-collecting tray with a convenient drain connector
            • "oil loving" oleophilic belt (purchased separately)
            • heavy-duty steel construction, with industrial-grade enamel paint

            Benefits

            • fast, simple belt changing
            • low maintenance
            • lower hang roller that will not fall off in the machine sump even in turbulent conditions

            Options

            • dewatering tray
            • portable kit
            • special length belts available on special order
            • special belt materials available for high temperature or pH applications on special order

            SCROUNGER® Jr Belts

            • all belts 1" [25mm] wide
            • 24" [610mm]
            • 32" [815mm]
            • 44" [1120mm]
