Eriez Wins 2012 Plant Engineering Magazine Product of the Year Bronze Award
Erie, PA — Eriez®, world authority in separation technologies, won a coveted 2012 Plant Engineering Magazine Product of the Year Bronze Award in the fluid handling category for the company’s revolutionary SumpDoc™ Fluid Recycling System. The announcement was made on March 18, 2013 at the annual Product of the Year dinner in Chicago.
Plant Engineering organizes the Product of the Year competition to recognize the best new products that help manufacturers operate safer, smarter and faster. According to Plant Engineering, the contest spanned 15 categories of the Plant Engineering world. Each category had Gold, Silver and Bronze Award winners, as well as a Grand Award for the best product in show. Plant Engineering subscribers voted to determine winners in each category.
Tim Shuttleworth, Eriez President and CEO, said of the award, “We are extremely honored to receive this prestigious award. At Eriez, new product development is driven by understanding market requirements and customers’ needs. We saw a clear demand for better fluid recycling in the metalworking industry and SumpDoc from our Eriez HydroFlow® division provides a solution.”
SumpDoc is an all-in-one portable fluid recycling system that completely filters and rejuvenates metalworking fluids in a machine tool sump without interrupting production. This allows shop personnel to position the unit alongside the machine tool sump and treat the existing coolant while continuing to operate the machine tool. The machine contains five-gallon on-board HDPE containers: one for tramp oil, one for centrifuge backwash, and one for coolant concentrate/chemical storage.
