Chemetall’s semi-synthetic Tech Cool metalworking fluids are formulated without the use of the triazine or other formaldehyde-releasing biocides.

To inhibit bacterial growth, the company says it uses high-grade raw materials, sanitary maintenance practices and fluid control, and advanced micro-emulsion technologies. The products are said to feature high lubricity, enhanced corrosion control and increased tramp oil rejection, even in high-pressure applications. They are compatible with ferrous and aluminum alloys, and can be used in stand-alone machine sumps and central coolant systems. The fluids are stable in hard water, and they are low foaming and residue-free. They also are suitable for recycling operations, the company says.

    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.
