The Freddy Micro Plus is the latest member of the Freddy Coolant Recycling Vacuum family.
The new Micro Plus is lighter, more mobile, and more cost-effective offering greater versatility than any other system on the market.
The Micro Plus continues on from the very successful Micro which was launched in early 2017. Designed and manufactured in the UK, it is made to the same high standards and specifications that has made the Freddy range a trusted and respected name in coolant recycling.
Unlike many alternate systems, the Micro Plus doesn’t use fragile and often unreliable submersible pumps that take up valuable tank capacity and make it incredibly difficult to thoroughly clean. This gives the new machine the ability to take on heavily contaminated liquids without damaging parts or machinery that it comes into contact with.
With the ability to pump out rather than have the gravity drain of the Micro, it is now possible to recycle 50 litres of coolant through the machine and back into the sump in just 60 seconds!
Available with a 2kW motor, and either a 240v or 110v power source, the motor can generate an airflow rate of 3000m3/hr with a water in-flow rate of 238 litres per minute and an outflow rate of 100 litres per minute. The airflow is switched from vacuum to pressurise in order to force filtered liquids out of the holding tank. It is so powerful the 2kW unit can easily pump out into barrels, IBC’s, or overhead storage tanks.
And as with the rest of the Freddy range, fluid is filtered through a filter bag, which are available from 1000um down to 5um to ensure the Freddy Micro Plus captures all contaminants from the machine tool.
The new Micro Plus is a cost-effective entry point for coolant recovery and comes complete with a 38mm hose and gulper as standard, with the option to upgrade to a 51mm hose if required, as well as a comprehensive 24-month warranty.
“The cost savings of refiltering coolant are enormous. Regular filtering means that the coolant degrades much slower, therefore lasting longer and requiring less to be bought. And because it remains uncontaminated, the associated WHS risks lessen, and your machine tools live longer,” said Dimac Managing Director, Paul Fowler.
“With its remarkably small footprint, 50 litre capacity and weighing less than any previous model, the new Micro Plus is a compact coolant recycling system ideal for smaller businesses,” added Mr Fowler.
“And whichever Freddy you choose, you’re guaranteed outstanding quality, ease of use and most importantly longevity. We see Freddy’s that are almost thirty years old come back to our workshop for an overhaul – once completed, we know they will perform for many more years to come,” Mr Fowler went on to say.
Dimac Tooling is Australia and New Zealand’s leading supplier of accessories and workholding solutions for CNC milling and CNC turning machine tools. The company also manufactures soft and hard jaws in their own CNC equipped machine shop in Dandenong, Victoria.
“Like all the products we sell, the Freddy Micro Plus has the full back up and support of Dimac technical personnel to ensure the product is installed correctly and operates at optimum performance,” Mr Fowler concluded.
