When a steel producer had a fire incident in the Electric Arc Furnace process due to metal sparks igniting mineral oil that leaked and accumulated to form a pool they converted to QUINTOLUBRIC® 888-46 to minimize the risk of fire due to its increased auto ignition and heat of combustion compared to mineral oil.
By switching to Quaker’s 2PAQ™ technology: QUAKERCOOL® W-ALCA BFF & 7895 OIL, the customer was able to benefit from coolant and water consumption savings of up to 50% and a savings of up to 24% on energy consumption.
QUAKERCOOL® 3530 AFF is a formaldehyde releaserfree, water-dilutable semi-synthetic fluid with a medium mineral oil content, suitable for machining and grinding operations on most engineering materials, including sensitive aeronautical aluminum alloys.
Load reductions (reduction in oil concentration),Reduction in roll peeling.Reduction in salt and pepper scale defects, Reduction in roll peeling on lubricated stands.
Fewer cold mill defects,Easy operator acceptance,Higher quality strip.
QUAKERCOOL® 7450 is a high-performance, formaldehyde and boron free microemulsion ideally suited to all operations on aluminum and ferrous alloys demanding premium surface finish quality and consistent lubrication.
