More than $4 billion worth of metalworking fluids were anticipated to be consumed for lubricating transportation around the world in 2017, according to a Future Market Insights report.

Due to the sheer amount of metalworking fluids consumed, some of the top priorities for U.S. shop owners concerned with productivity include proper maintenance, recycling, and disposal of metalworking fluids.

How To Optimize Industrial Recycling And Metalworking Fluid Maintenance
Metalworking fluids such as Brayco 300, Brayco 363, and Brayco 460 are essential for optimal metal cutting and machine performance. Without the proper disposal and maintenance, shops can lose precious work time repairing and cleaning their machines.

That being said, here are a few tips to optimize your metalworking fluid maintenance and the recycling of specific industrial supplies to keep your shop running as productively as possible.

  • Keep your MWFs clean
    One of the key components of optimal fluid maintenance is keeping your MWFs clean. Certain fluids such as synthetics may be more difficult to filter because of how often they come into contact with contaminants. Consider using a belt or tube skimmer to help remove dirt and tramp oil that collects over time in your machine's tool sumps to help keep your fluids clean.
  • Keep your chips dry
    A chip conveyor can help to keep your machines dry by lifting chips up and out of your machine tool sumps. This allows your MWFs to run through the sump and reduces the amount of lost fluid. What's more, you may be able to maximize on scrap values with the dry chips a chip conveyor collects.
  • Control your MWF amounts
    One thing you definitely don't want to do is to manually mix your fluids. There's a high probability in these situations that you could end up with the wrong measurements. Drum mixers are designed to prepare specific amounts of coolant without the guesswork. Additionally, drum mixers can provide the correct droplet size compared to manual mixing.

Proper metalworking fluid maintenance and coolant disposal is essential to keep your shop up and running. However, it's also important to use the right metalworking fluids for the job.
