What to do with your metalworking fluid during longer production stops?
The machines may not be running, but chemistry and microbiology continue to be active in your water-miscible metalworking fluid.
The fluid doesn’t circulate anymore and there’s no supply with fresh emulsion. All this can lead to severe problems such as bad smell, corrosion of machine parts and splitting of the emulsion. You therefore need to decide whether you maintain your coolant during the production stop or whether it’s a good opportunity to dispose your old coolant, clean your machines and get them ready for future production.
