Being a Florida based company, Neuco learned early on that our water was less than optimal for mixing with water based coolant. However, water systems in general were expensive to own and water filtration companies that cater to drinking water would want to install a water softener; which fixed the hardness issue but multiplied the chloride issue! So 15 years ago we embarked on an educational journey in water quality that continues through today.
Our water based coolants rely on 90%-95% water as a carrier, and any contaminant that is in the water stays in the sump when the water evaporates….. Add more water (and contaminates) and it evaporates which leaves behind more contaminates in the sump. You can see how quickly the water quality in the sump can go downhill if this cycle is allowed to continue.
For these reasons, we consulted with a national leader in drinking water Reverse Osmosis (R-O) Systems, to help us develop a more appropriate Industrial Water System. Why use the word “appropriate”? Simply stated, a 5-stage drinking water R-O System has 2 of the 5 stages for “Taste and Odor”, because our units are purpose built for industrial water (not for drinking), we utilize the 3 important stages from the drinking systems mentioned above, but we go one differentiating step further! We add a custom color changing DI (mixed bed deionization) stage after the membrane. This takes the already 98% pure water and polishes it to 99+%! So even though we call them R-O systems, they truly are hybrid R-O/DI systems.

Below you will find several prepackaged systems that we feel fit the majority of the machine shops that we serve. We can also build any custom sized unit that you desire. From 50 GPD (gallons per day), to 18,000 GPD, with storage from 55 gallons to 1000 gallons with any kind of water or premixed coolant delivery system required.
