QUAKERCOOL ® W ALCA BFF & QUAKERCOOL ® OIL MF

CASE STUDY − GRINDING

 

CHALLENGES


 

A worldwide manufacturer of bearings was using a bi-component cutting fluid for production in a plant in Italy. They were looking to:

  • Improve surface finish
  • Reduce costs
  • Eliminate the need for tankside additives
  • Use boron-free and formaldehyde-free products
  • Improve worker health and safety

 

THE SOLUTION


 

Quaker introduced its 2PAQ technology − a two-component, innovative technology, QUAKERCOOL ® W ALCA BFF (alkaline phase) and QUAKERCOOL ® OIL MF (an ester-based oil phase) for a test production run of 30.000 bearings. During the two week test, this world-class fluid:

  • Eliminated burning of bearing races and improved grinding machine cleanliness
  • Eliminated foam, bacteria and corrosion
  • Lowered fluid and additive cost by approximately 15%
