QualiChem’s Eqo-Pure 452 vegetable-based, water-soluble lubricant is designed for severe hardened steel and stainless steel machining applications. The micro-emulsion fluid is formulated for use on ferrous or nonferrous metals that require high levels of boundary and high-pressure lubrication, and is said to provide corrosion control for ferrous metals and machine tools. According to the company, the lubricant can replace straight oil in applications such as boring, deep-hole drilling, reaming, tapping and threading.

The fluid features extreme pressure additives and avoids foaming and staining, improving tool life and workpiece quality. According to QualiChem, the lubricant provides a stable emulsion and runs clean for longer tool and service life. Its bio-resistant qualities enable a long fluid life in both central systems and individual sumps without biocides.

    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.

    An expensive lesson that many shops learn too late is that the automatic oil system on their CNC machine tool may not be completely automatic. Since the automatic oil system is designed to give a warning when the oil tank is empty, many machinists simply assume all is well if the alarm doesn't go off.
