There are now great alternatives to the conventional means of carrying out mechanized lubrications of industrial tools and machinery. These alternatives also happen to be sustainable and environmentally friendly. Previously, under traditional circumstances, industrial lubrication required petroleum or synthetic based products to be mixed with between ten to twenty parts with water in order to fully coat the tool or machinery. This was designed to prevent the generation of heat which typically or potentially generates noxious fumes.
But the conventional means of lubrication contain few lubricating properties. The sustainable and eco-friendly alternative continues to practice the concept of cooling tools and protecting them from corrosion. In practicing these methods, other advantages come to the fore. Using as little as one and a half ounces of lubricant per day, in the event of maximum tool and/or machinery use, saves on time and money. It also increases, not just preserves, tool and machinery life. Owing to almost one hundred percent of the lubricant being consumed in the cut, no cleanup thereafter is required.
This, of course, helps to better keep work stations clean and reduces the amount of disposable waste. The metalworking fluid and lubricants applied are essentially environmentally safe oils that are nearly three hundred times higher in lubricity than the previous conventions. The oils are effective in preventing heating occurrences and eliminate friction within the used lubricating systems. The lubricant is applied directly to the source if you will. This also helps to enforce precision in purpose. As a result, no quenching occurs.
When heat is displaced through the chip no fumes or mist are emitted. Reducing heat and friction improves safety in the work environment where it is not always possible to conduct cleanup operations elsewhere.
