Monroe Fluid Technology has released the Astro-Cut Micro EP-XBP, a biostable, semi-synthetic, high-pressure coolant designed for use in high- and low-pressure metal removal operations such as CNC milling, turning, drilling, tapping, grinding and sawing.

The metalcutting coolant combines the chemical flexibility of synthetics with mineral oil and a chlorinated extreme-pressure additive along with the efficiency of micro emulsion technology, says the company. The coolant is said to exhibit foam control, hard water stability and tramp oil rejection. It provides extreme-pressure lubricity for machining and grinding metals, particularly aluminum, stainless steels and other hard-to-machine alloys, according to the company. It does not contain DCHA.

    This micro-volume coolant delivery system uses ethanol as the cooling medium for non-ferrous workpieces. The ethanol evaporates after it cools the cutting tool, so no residue is left behind on machined workpieces.

    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.

    Unfortunately, along with this shop's successful growth rate came some new problems, the same problems experienced by many other companies: coolant odor, dermatitis outbreaks and rust.
