Custom Machines- Standard Parts

When we get a chance to design and build custom machines, like our custom machine coolant filter units, we like to use standard parts.  We believe in designing and building custom machines like ones that we would want to own.  We use Standard parts for our Custom machines because Standard parts are easy to access and find if they ever need to be replaced.  I have been in the industry long enough to know that there is far more money is using all custom parts.  We have also been on the other end, where we are the customer with a custom machine that was built with custom parts, and know what it is like when one of those small parts needs to be replaced.  Finding a custom part that is needed to fix the machine is not easy, and comes with a pretty hefty price tag.  We believe in running our business in a way that will make things easier for the customer.  We have been a customer ourselves, and know how it feels to spend time running down a small custom part, and having to pay a pretty high price to get it.  Using custom parts does ensure the customer will have to come back to you if the custom machine ever needs parts replaced, but we would rather have our customers come back because they like our work and service. 

Machines are supposed to run long and hard with minimum maintenance.  If something fails it should be easy to replace with a standard, easy to access part.  This is the most ideal situation for the consumer.  Building custom machines with planned obsolescence and fancy parts just for the sole purpose of being able to inflate the price is not the way we want to run our business.  We build custom machine filter units that may not look incredibly fancy, but they work well, last long, and are built with parts that are easy to find and easy to replace if ever needed.  We believe in the golden rule- “Build the kind of machine you would like to own”, and that is exactly what we do.

      This is almost always the result of bacteria in the coolant. The bacteria are living in the sludge on the bottom and they are eating the tramp oils and greases. They use sulfur to do this so you get a rotten egg smell. Simply put, what you are doing is breathing bacteria farts.

      The best solution is to dispose of the old coolant, thoroughly clean your home machine and institute a proper coolant management program.

      1. The easiest, fastest solution is to install some sort of bubbler. The bacteria that are giving you problems are anaerobic which means they don’t like air, especially oxygen. If you put something in the bottom of your tank that will bubble air through the tank then it will kill the bacteria and you won’t have the stink.

      The bubbling air is going to increase your evaporation rate and increase the employee exposure to the coolant, oils, greases, dead bacteria and general crud in your coolant.

      2. There are all sorts of chemicals that people dump in their coolant to solve this problem. Biologically and chemically bacteria is sort of a really small, really tough version of people. The way to kill bacteria is to eat through their skin. So you need to dump a chemical into the tank that will kill a small tough version of people. However the liquid you put in the tank is going to evaporate and people are going to breathe it.

      There are some special chemicals that will kill bacteria but will not harm people very much if they only breathe very low doses for very short periods of time. However every person is different and some things that some don’t affect most people will kill certain people.

      The best way to keep smell of your coolant is to filter regularly to remove the grit in the bacteria. You want to remove the tramp oils and greases. Make sure the pH in concentrations are correct. All this and more is explained on our website.
