Industrial Vacuums, Coolant Recycling Machines and Systems

Over the years

Freddy was established in 1962, supplying the UK and USA with the renowned Mark I filtration machines, originally complementing the de la Pena Oil brand. Since then we have designed and manufactured the Freddy family of industrial vacuums and coolant filtration machines, from the compact and adaptable Superminor, to the robust “great filtrator” Mark 5, all designed to remove, filter and return coolant for longer life, and improve machining results.

Freddy purchased Industrial VacAir company in 2001 to support our growth into the increasing dry vacuum market, and we have been building on the dry vacuum range ever since, including atex and hepa filtration for use with hazardous dust. Why not take a look at our industrial dry vacuum range.

We believe we are today’s guardians of tomorrow’s world. You have a problem - we have the solution for you.

The Freddy Micro

As the name suggests, the new Micro is a compact coolant recycling system, designed, built and manufactured in the UK to the high standards and specifications that has made the Freddy range a trusted name, the Freddy Micro offers a new solution to your coolant recycling needs.

With a smaller footprint, a smaller 50 litre capacity, and weighing less than any previous Freddy, it offers versatility, better mobility and affordability.

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 out-flow rate of 100 litres per minute. And as with the rest of the Freddy range, fluid is filtered through a filterbag, which are available from 1000um down to 5um to ensure the Freddy Micro captures all contaminants from your machine tool.

Complete with a 38mm hose and gulper as standard, with the option to upgrade to a 51mm hose if required, as well as a 24 month warranty, the new Micro is a cost effective entry point for coolant recovery.

Mark V

The Freddy Mark V

The Mark V is one of the largest of our coolant recycling vacuums, ranging from 310 litres to 500 litres tank capacity.  It has a tilting filter tank, enabling quick and easy emptying of the 60 litre basket. Designed to vacuum out coolant from machine tool sumps, machine beds, drip trays, conveyors and even the shop floor with the dedicated floor tool and recycle it for re-use.

For the larger models, there is the option of a battery propelled chassis, the Mark V can also be battery operated so it can be used anywhere.



The Freddy Superminor

The Freddy Superminor+ has been designed with the operator in mind.  Built to be easily manoeuvred around a machine shop.  Made of mild steel, it is robust, some have been in action for 25 years or more, so it is suitable for even the most arduous environments.

We try to keep it simple.  Which is why we designed the Superminor+ to be as easy to use as possible. Featuring simple levers and push button on/off switches, minimal training is required to operate the Freddy Superminor+, saving time when training new operatives.

The Freddy Titan

Born in our Bespoke department, the Titan is the largest of our coolant recycling vacuums. Although made as a 3000-litre unit, it can actually be made in a number of different tank sizes.

Well suited to Automotive and Aerospace industries where large wash tanks and CNC’s mean recycling can be done without using multiple IBC units, saving much downtime with unnecessary movements. 

Fitted with a large 7.5kw 415v Side channel Pump means it can pull thick oils and heavy solids over a large distance at great speed. Equally the 415v discharge pump can empty the tank within 15 minutes and pump liquid up and into large central tanks. 

Designed to be towed by Tractor or Forklift, it is still very manoeuvrable and sits on heavy-duty, non-marking tyres.

Like all Freddy units, it has a filter turret which will accept both our long and short filter baskets. Depending on the application you can decide what is best fit for you.

How It Works:

A Freddy coolant vacuum recycles your coolant so it can be reused, with filtration down to 5 microns. Sucking coolant straight from your machine tool slump, and returning it for reuse within seconds, it saves you time and increases coolant life - saving you money.

Why Recycle Coolant?

Whether you are using fully synthetic, semi-synthetic or neat oil, contaminated metalworking fluids are detrimental to business.  Reducing the effectiveness, and reducing the life of machine tools can be costly.  The finish of your products can be diminished, not to mention the health and safety implications that can be caused by the contaminated coolant, such as dermatitis.  Then there is the cost of purchasing and disposing of your metalworking fluid.  All of these issues can be solved by a Freddy.
