Low Oil, Secondary Amine and Formaldehyde Free Emulsifiable Coolant Lowers Usage Rates

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Common sources of high coolant usage for machining and grinding operations in the Metalworking industry are poor tramp oil rejection and inadequate fines handling, as the coolant can destabilize and become rancid.  Additionally, high oil containing coolants and high carry off can all contribute to high coolant usage.

Total annual cost savings of $50,033 for all three systems

QUAKERCOOL® 740, developed by Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker") to improve increasing health, safety and performance demands in the Metalworking industry, can alleviate these common issues while providing the proper lubrication for machining and grinding operations.

A global automotive manufacturer performing machining and grinding on cast iron cam and crank shafts was experiencing escalated usage rates with a high oil containing, semi-synthetic product. Quaker recommended converting to QUAKERCOOL® 740, a low oil containing emulsifiable coolant with no added chlorine, sulfur, boron, secondary amines, formaldehyde, or phenolic compounds. QUAKERCOOL® 740 has excellent fines handling properties, provides exceptional tramp oil rejection and reduces drag out, which contribute to lower usage. Throughout the trial, the customer reported no foaming, great microbiological control, no odor issues, and no machining and grinding concerns. By switching all three of their coolant systems to QUAKERCOOL® 740, the customer realized the following results:

  • Total annual cost savings of over $50,000 for all three systems
  • Lowered usage rates due to reduced carry off on the part
  • 2.5% Reduction in make-up rates by replacing a higher oil semi-synthetic product

This biostable technology provides excellent sump life and microbiological resistance, including resistance to myco bacteria, and was specifically engineered to provide effective machining for ferrous-based materials in all applications.
