air knife alternative?
The best solution would be to remove the oil at the press in order to
enhance reuse possibilities and to reduce oil losses/cleanup issues
associated with parts movement throughout your facility.
Not knowing the configuration of the parts press (so this may not be
applicable) I would suggest a high pressure blow off of the oil (like
an air knife system) into a collection vessel. This would recapture
the oil before getting soiled; at most it may need to be filtered or
centrifuged to remove metal chips/flakes before reuse.
If the parts/oil are not hot at the press where the blow off would be
done, heating the parts or press may enhance the process due to lower
viscosity if such a retrofit could be done.
Just an idea to consider; one vendor out there has a "sonic system"
that's supposed to be much cheaper and more efficient than compressed
