New High Performance Mineral Oil Free Coolant Solves Operator Complaints

Lubriserv has solved operator complaints at Midlands Aerospace company by using new technology synthetic oil based coolant on CNC machining operations, using Sintral MCF 565, New technology high performance, synthetic lubro-coolant.

Gloucester, United Kingdom, April 09, 2010 --( The Midlands based precision engineering company was experiencing operators complaining of skin irritation and sticky residues on the machines from the oil based coolant. They needed a coolant to provide not only high performance on a range of aerospace alloys and yellow metals but a coolant that kept the machine tool clean, had a long sump life and didn't cause any skin irritation to operators. After trialling several products they concluded that Sintral MCF 565 from Lubriserv Ltd was the only coolant that met all the criteria.

The coolant is not like other synthetic products which dry the slideways, give minimal lubrication and can be harsh to the skin - it is a 'Lubrocoolant' working as a water miscible synthetic oil. The appearance is milky - just as an oil based coolant and it still provides all the lubrication required for cutting and for the machine tool itself.

Sintral MCF 565 is a high performance, mineral oil free water miscible lubrocoolant with outstanding “multimetal” features. Sintral MCF 565 is a member of a new generation of cutting fluids. It does not contain chlorine, yet with the use of special additives; it is designed as an all-purpose heavy duty coolant.

Where To Use It:
General use in machining operations on cast iron, carbon steel and low-to-medium alloy steel, as well as aluminium alloys and copper alloys.

Excellent for machining aluminium and tough alloys, where extreme pressure is required. Extremely operator friendly with the absence of mineral oil.

Performance Benefits:
-New synthetic lubricant technology provides high Extreme Pressure characteristics
-Multi-metal capability. Use one coolant throughout the plant.
-Extremely long sump life reduces coolant change-outs. Lower annual disposal fees.
-High resistance to bacterial and fungal growth
-Operator and Health and Safety friendly
-Protects against sticky switches and valves. Keeps machines clean yet protected.
-Superior Tramp Oil rejection for removal of oils, keeps machine & work pieces clean
-Non-staining chemistry
-Cleaner machines – tolerates hard water.
-Low foam levels even on high pressure systems.
-Excellent corrosion protection

Sintral MCF 565, owing to its innovative formulation and to absence of mineral oil, Sintral MCF 565 ensures the highest compliance with health and environmental requirements. Its specific formulation enables the use of Sintral MCF 565 in a broad range of applications.
