Expert Customers Agree

“I highly recommend distributors buying a skimmer for testing at customer sites. One test is worth a 1000 opinions.”


“The Zebra Skimmers remove way more lubes from our coolant which extended coolant life. Also, in slow times if our machines sit for any length of time we leave the skimmers on a timer so they run every so often, this greatly reduces any smell at machine startup time.”
