Controlling the fluids concentration and pH helps keep the coolant in good condition and maximises sump life & performances.
Low concentration will reduce the performance of the fluid and could result in corrosion, microbial growth leading to the possibility of the emulsion splitting. A high concentration can lead to potential skin irritation, increases the chance of foaming and higher usage costs. A drop in pH can signify an increase in bacteria levels. A rise in pH could mean contamination possibly from cleaning products.
Dip slides are an important part of managing water soluble cutting fluids as it helps monitor bacteria & moulds within the fluids, helping keep the operator safe and prolong the sump life & performance of the fluids, also keeping in the guidelines of the HSE MW5 guidance.
No matter how well metal working fluids are managed and maintained we generally advise annual clean out, this is mainly due to swarf build-up within the sump, reducing the fluids volume, our Fluid Management technicians can help take the hassle out of cleaning machine sumps and keeping the lost production down to a minimum, once the technicians have finished cleaning the machine sump, the sump is then refilling at the correct concentration, removing the waste and providing the relevant waste paperwork.
Millers Oils have a range of oil skimmers, emulsion mixers & coolant pumps.
