Where it is vitally important to install and maintain a fluid management program it is also important to select the best product that combines health & safety with performance & economy.
The application will largely dictate the type metalworking fluid selected and the components within it.
Every lubricant manufacturer is responsible for making available a CLP complaint safety data sheet which identifies the product hazard and basic properties as well as information on exposure to the product and hazardous components. It is important when looking at soluble metalworking fluids that the hazard classification relates to the concentrated product as supplied as any hazard is minimised in dilution.
When considering both the hazard classification & product price is also important to consider the product in use throughout the full machining cycle. For instance a product which is more expensive and hazardous may in fact be a safer option longer term by protecting the fluid and thus operator from exposure to harmful micro-organisms.
Q8Oils offer a full range of neat & soluble metalworking fluids designed to provide the optimum balance of safety, productivity and economy over the full life of the fluid in use.
