Midcool 3053 Price available on request (208 Litres)

A high performance chlorine free water soluble metal working fluid suitable for Aluminium, Steel and other Alloys

Midcool 3053 is the latest in chlorine free technology offering significant advantages in performance without the use of chlorinated additives. It is inherently low foam and is excellent in soft to hard water. It is suitable for use on a wide range of difficult materials and is a perfect choice for aerospace and high technology manufacturing.

Midcool 3053 offers unrivaled cutting and wetting performance and can be used in all types of arduous manufacturing applications. The performance additives incorporated into the fluid provides outstanding surface finish on all types of steel, aluminium, titanium and other aerospace alloys. The unique formulation prevents scum and soap formation associated with more reactive materials and can be used across a wide range of filtration / types of filter media systems without causing blinding.

Midcool 3053 incorporates the latest performance additives; the product also exhibits excellent lubricity characteristics to provide both good tool life and surface finish. The product is highly resistant to bacteria formation and exhibits excellent corrosion resistance whilst maintaining machine cleanliness and operator acceptability.

Operational Recommendations

Midcool 3053 is designed to be mixed with water; it has been developed to exhibit full multi-metal compatibility and is suitable for use in soft and hard water types.

Midcool 3053 with water by adding concentrate to water and then mixing or use a suitable proportioning mixer unit, these are available on request. The use of an airline to mix the solution is not recommended. Machine top up may require a weaker dilution than the initial machine charge concentration. Recommended concentrations can vary depending on operations, materials, tooling, coolant pressure, coolant flow. The above information is given for guidance. Please contact your representative for further advice.

Midcool 3053 should always be stored indoors and protected from frost. Good standards of hygiene and housekeeping should always be adopted when using any metalworking fluid. A separate MSDS is available for this product.As with all modern cutting fluids, concentration control is of paramount importance, therefore regular check by use of a refractometer is recommended for this product. It should be noted that the individual product refractometer correction factor should always be used to ensure accuracy.
