In order to eliminate and avoid those hassles, Abanaki Coolant Mints and Aerator will put an end to that nasty smell and bacteria spreading. Having “fresh” coolant can also extend its usefulness and effectiveness, reducing the expense on maintenance and coolant replacement.

2. Saving more money

Tote It (2).jpgCompanies always look for effective ways to remove oil from water or coolant to reduce costs and the liability of proper disposal. There are many instances where companies have turned their disposal costs into income. By using an Abanaki oil skimmer to remove oil from the coolant, one company was able to sell its used oil to be recycled instead of being charged to have the oil-contaminated coolant disposed of. Another money saving benefit was an extended coolant life resulting in lower coolant and maintenance costs. Because of this, the Abanaki oil skimmer paid for itself in a short period of time.

3. Get more quality sleep

Dirty coolant can generate smoke, that all too familiar “rotten egg” smell, and bacterial issues, which can become a health hazard to shop workers. The Oil Boss skimmer keeps coolant free of oil and extends tool and coolant life. The Oil Boss Oil Skimmer uses patent-pending Magni-Cling™ technology to cling to the side of machines, keep aisles free of clutter and avoid the risk of kicking containers and causing spills.
