AquaTec 5001

Synthetic grinding fluid concentrate for cemented carbides                                        

 

 

AquaTec 5001 is a high performance, synthetic metalworking fluid designed specifically for light to moderate duty working of cemented carbides, and is ideal for shops that prefer to use an oil-free product. AquaTec 5001 contains a proven and highly effective combination of inhibitors that significantly reduces the leaching of cobalt and nickel binders. The integrity of the carbide workpiece is maintained, and more importantly, the addition of toxic metal ions into the metalworking fluid environment is minimized.

 

AquaTec 5001 also provides excellent lubricity and cooling to extend grinding wheel life, and to improve workpiece finish. Grinding wheels remain open, and swarf quickly settles to the bottom of the sump for easy filtration due to superior rinsing and settling properties.

 

AquaTec 5001 can be used in “stand-alone” machines and central systems. It is an ideal product for grinding applications such as surface, centerless, ID, OD, and Blanchard, and can also be used for light to moderate duty machining. AquaTec 5001 is extremely low foaming, making it an excellent choice in high-pressure applications.

AquaTec 5001 is not recommended for use on magnesium or alloyed magnesium.

 

Using premixed concentrate as makeup will improve performance and reduce usage. The specific makeup concentration selected for your situation should balance the water evaporation rate with the coolant carry-off-rate. Adding makeup concentrate at 20 – 30% of the desired working concentration will generally maintain the proper concentration in use. The use of deionized or mineral-free water for makeup will also improve performance, prolong sump life, and reduce concentrate usage.

 

A thorough cleaning of the machine sump or central system with system cleaner is recommended to remove oily residues, dirt deposits and biofilms of bacteria and mold before refilling the system.
