Oilybits OB-45, Perforated Basket Centrifuge / Centrifugal Sieve

Designed for centrifugal seperation of cutting liquids from machined parts or chip debris, or seperation of liquids from other coarse solids.

OB-45 can be used for removing any liquids which are not chemically agressive to the machines component materials, these include all petroleum and vegetable derived oils, as well as water based products and blends of water & oil such as cutting fluids.

OB-45 in its stock format is loaded manually, the lid clamped down and the machine switched on, the oil is then spun out of the chips / parts and drains out via a tap. Some customers who use the machine for centrifugally filtering liquids, drill a hole through the top of the lid, so that liqids can be pumped into the basket in a continuous cycle, eliminating the need for manual loading.

OB-45 has a side door for easy moving of the potentially heavy basket out of the enclosure, the basket is then put onto a stand which enables it to be inverted and the parts or waste tipped out onto a tray, also included. Due to the design of the side door it is possible for some oil to leak out when opened, this is channeled into a V-shaped gutter, under which a tray (also included an show in our images) is placed to collect spillage. The door can be better sealed with an adhesive rubber strip or by placement of a plastic screen inside the door.

The perforated bowl is made from zinc plated mild steel and has a nominal perforation size of 1.5mm, if your solid media is less than 1.5mm, the bowl can easily be lined with filter cloth or mesh to retain smaller particles of the desired size.

OB-45 is free standing, and is supplied with 4 bolt holes for bolting to the floor. It is possible for braked casters or legs (not supplied) to be bolted through these holes, if the machine needs to be made portable, or the operational height increased.
