Synthetic Coolants are a class of metalworking coolants that do NOT contain oil. Formulations include additives to provide lubricity, prevent rusting, control foam, and control or prevent microbial growth.
Monroe Fluid Technology has two ‘workhorse’ water soluble oil concentrates, designed specifically for the demands of heavy duty machining applications. Where a chlorinated additive is specified, our Astro- Sol C HD is recommended. In circumstances where a chlorinated additive may not be suitable, we offer Astro-Sol A-XBP. Both are low foaming products, suitable for virtually all metals and applications, and are designed to resist bio-degradation.
Keeping your equipment clean is not just for appearance’s sake. Dirt and dust love to cling to oils, greases, hydraulic fluid, and those mixtures can act like sandpaper, which can cause machine failures. We can help you deal with it.
Here is one way to do it when time is a factor during production and you may not have the luxury of shutting down a system for a long time to do a full clean out and re-charge. You’ll need Astro-Clean A.
There are many factors involved in selecting the fluids for your metalworking application. The right chemistry of the fluid, water quality, tooling, delivery pressure of the fluid, the alloy you are machining are just a few. Whether you choose Synthetic, Semi-Synthetic or Soluble Oil, concentration is the key.
