Are Contaminants Interfering with your Metal Processing?

Metals Processing Steel Aluminum Brass

Oil and water both play a major role in processing industrial metals such as steel, aluminum, brass, and copper. Removing oil, dirt, coatings, and metal fines from the water and oil can significantly affect your product quality, throughput, and uptime.

The Trucent Difference

We deploy our technology and services in a variety of ways in the metal processing industry. Typically, we remove contaminants from our customer’s oil or water-based fluids. For example, in aluminum metal forming, we use on-site distillation to remove contaminants such as the hydraulic fluid from oil that causes staining on the aluminum metal surface during rolling processes. In copper wire drawing applications, we remove coatings and solid particulates with centrifuges that could affect the final product’s quality. For steel, Trucent is often used to keep wash baths free of oil, dirt, and metal fines before galvanizing. Three-phase centrifugation works well in these applications. In all cases, reuse of the fluids saves money and leads to a more sustainable process.

Metalworking Fluid Purification and Reclaimation

Metalworking Reclaim Saves $400,000 Annually


A transmission component supplier was losing large amounts of metalworking fluid before it could reach the purification system.


Reengineering the customer’s purification system showed a customer-documented 60% decrease in coolant concentrate usage. Documentation by the facility also showed a decrease in waste treatment and water usage. Tooling savings totaled over $30,000 in the first four months of operation.

Meet New Challenges with Expert Solutions

Trucent continues to develop new technology where we combine multiple separation technologies into a single skid. For example, if you use one of our solutions that combine a centrifuge and an ultrafiltration unit, we guarantee your wash baths will never be cleaner. We have other solutions that combine magnetic separators, centrifuges, and ultrafiltration membranes for the ultimate solution for ferrous metals.


Bridge the Skills Gap with Help from Trucent

For many of these metal processing solutions, Trucent has our people on-site monitoring, operating, and maintaining the technology. This allows our customers to focus on what they do best while we focus on the dirty work.


A Setup That Meets Spec

We can bring in mobile purification systems, lease you skid-mounted equipment, or get new custom filtration installed. If you already have the equipment, we can refurbish, repair, maintain, and program all makes and models of centrifuges and support most other separation processes.
