Quaker Chemical offers a portfolio of metal removal emulsion technology, comprising the Quakercool 700 and 700 series, intended to serve the metalworking industry’s automotive/heavy equipment manufacturers and components producers that operate with diverse metallurgies. Quakercool 700 is designed for ferrous machining, while Quakercool 7000 is designed for aluminum and multi-metal machining.

According to the company, these products will benefit producers of metal components using individual machining cells or smaller central systems. The two series include six metal removal fluids combined, offering a selection of high-performance choices to suite specific needs for process efficiency.

These formulations are said to reduce the use of hazardous materials such as boron, formaldehyde and other substances of concern. The improved emulsion characteristics in several of the fluids directly influence plant metrics by reducing the chemical consumption or water use per part, while defending against traditional degrading materials like tramp oils. Benefits of both series include biostability against bacteria and fungi; flexibility for a range of operations including tapping and reaming; suitability for a range of materials including aluminum, stainless steel, steel, ductile cast iron, compacted graphite iron (CGI) and titanium alloys; no- to low-foam and high-emulsion stability over a range of water hardness; and low mist and odor.

  • Long-Lasting Coolant Reduces Costs, Downtime

    This shop provides a case in point of the substantial savings that can be realized with the proper coolant formulation. Rustlick Ultracut Pro, available from ITW Rocol North America, lasted twice as long in the sump than the shop’s previous coolant, leading to significant operating and maintenance cost savings.

  • Doing Away With Coolant Disposal

    This shop installed a series of improvements that eliminated spent coolant waste.

  • A Separator Solves The Tramp Oil Problem

    With their strong attention to routine housekeeping, it's not surprising that this shop carefully researched all methods for removing tramp oil from coolant in machine sumps. If tramp oil is allowed to build up in the coolant, the resulting shop odor, smoke generation and unpleasant conditions for the operators will quickly undermine all efforts to keep a clean shop and maintain an optimum working environment.
