Cutting Oils Advice

Coolant best practice

  • 01. Always add oil to water when mixing never add water to the oil.
  • 02. Wherever possible use a venture mixing device (more accurate dilutions)
  • 03. If mixing manually always use a measuring container for greater accuracy
  • 04. Always add weaker emulsions to top up sumps – never add just water or the oil.
  • 05. Remove tramp oil via skimmers
  • 06. Check PH and refractometer readings daily
  • 07. Use dip slides to monitor bacteria and fungi on a weekly basis
  • 08. Keep dilutions to 5 – 10%
