QUAKERCOOL® 7200 HBFF

CASE STUDY – MACHINING AND GRINDING

 

CHALLENGES


 

A leading German die casting company experienced problems related to their metalworking coolant and service from the supplier. The die caster produces automotive modules, home appliances and consumer goods from aluminum, magnesium and zinc with decorative surfaces, and was looking to alleviate the following problems:

  • Skin irritation
  • Bacterial problems
  • Low coolant lifetime
  • Coolant containing Boron and Formaldehyde

 

THE SOLUTION


 

Quaker visited the most critical plant located in Czech Republic which was never visited by the competitor. As a result of the visit, Quaker introduced QUAKERCOOL® 7200 HBFF after performing compatibility tests with different polish pastes, cleaners, electroplating, etc. The product was recommended based on the following advantages:

  • Formaldehyde releaser free
  • Boron free
  • Excellent bio-resistance
  • Cleanliness of tools/machinery even on cast iron in hard water
  • Excellent corrosion protection

Beginning in November 2012 thru June 2013, QUAKERCOOL® 7200 HBFF was gradually introduced into machines located in Germany and Czech Republic. At the end of the trial, the customer realized the following results:

  • 10% lowered total cost from the competitor
  • 50% reduction of the coolant consumption due to better coolant lifetime in Czech Republic plant
  • Improved biostability of the coolant over the competitor
  • Elimination of skin irritation
  • Elimination of bacteria related problems
