Industrial fluids are ever-present in a manufacturing environment and have multiple purposes. From the first cut, an industrial fluid begins to become contaminated — the fluid collects tramp oil, dissolved metals, chips, and particulate. Over time, the fluid’s performance degrades due to contamination, resulting in decreased tool life and part quality as well as increases in cost and downtime.
Traditionally, manufacturing plants have dumped their coolant, whether it is in individual sumps or a central system, and recharge their system with new coolant under the misconception that the metalworking fluid has gone bad.
Many plants, however, have shifted their mindset to coolant filtration. They understand that they can put a coolant filtration system in place and filter out the contaminants that are affecting their coolant life. They have made the inherent connection between their coolant, their machine tools, and the end product. By looking at the coolant as a tool, rather than a necessary evil, manufacturing plants have stopped the vicious cycle of dumping and recharging and begun focusing on how their coolant is performing and what can be done to maintain a desired level of performance.
Clean fluid simply works better, and Trucent’s industrial coolant filtration technologies and services keep your industrial fluid performing at a high level. Our expertise and portfolio of technologies and services allow us to develop the right purification system and program for your specific fluid application. Purified coolant results in longer fluid life and better performance, translating into lower costs and improved part quality.
