Glass Grinding Fluids
When it comes to resistance to biological deterioration, the SUPER»CUT coolant stands above the crowd. Each component in the formulation is selected for its resistance to attack by bacteria and fungus. The coolant does not use any biological control agents that may harm workers' skin or upper respiratory system.
Extended sump life
Because of new more stringent waste disposal regulations, coolants today must last longer in their service life. When managed correctly, the SUPERCUT coolant may last twice as long as normal coolants. To obtain the maximum life, a test for suspended solids should be run once a week. Once the solids level has been determined, simple post treatment in the existing tank will clear the fluid of most unwanted glass fines and leave the fluid ready for another week of high-speed operation.
Flocculants and Coagulants
SUPERCUT offers a range of flocculants and coagulants to effectively aid in the removal of suspended solids from many types of grinding fluids.
Floc 60 - is designed to work in tandem with Floc 80. Once the floe is formed by Floc 80, Floc 60 is added to increase the size of the floc, increase the speed of settling and control the density of the settled material. Floc 60 is best suited for use in two-part settling systems such as a Henry system or a Decanter type system.
Floc 80 - is used as the primary initial flocculant in a two-part system and in many cases is used as a standalone flocculant for those systems running centrifuges for solids removal.
Floc 90 - is a highly efficient ONE PART flocculant that offers high-end performance and very low usage rates (35-75ppm as compared to most materials that are used at 600 to 1200ppm) to effect total and complete solids separation in a controlled manner
Coolant system maintenance
Coolant should be checked daily for:
- Level of solids in a central system should be monitored and adjusted daily with additions of flocculant
- Biological activity should be examined weekly in spring and summer, monthly in winter.
SUPER-CUT sales engineer can help you set up a system maintenance program so as to optimize your coolant usage and benefits at no cost to the end user.
For those users requiring special performance in the areas of increased line speeds, extended wheel life, or swarf removal, the SUPER-CUT coolant may be modified to meet your requirements on a custom formulation basis.
