Avoiding an Oil Fire Pool


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.
