HART1770Metalworking Fluids (MWFs)

Metalworking Fluids (MWFs) are used to reduce heat and friction in metal cutting, grinding and shaping operations. MWFs also provide corrosion protection for the newly machined part and machine tool.

It is important to effectively manage the health, safety and environmental impacts of metalworking fluids (MWF).  Properly maintaining the MWF in use is not only important to the health and safety of shop personnel but provides significant cost savings by extending the useful life of the MWF and reducing waste.
