Why Standardizing Coolants Makes Sense

WalloverCoolantIt is very seldom that you can use one coolant formulation for all types of metal and metalworking operations.  But what most people overlook is that using multiple coolant variations is a mistake as well.  In most shops, the general rule is no more than three coolant mixes.  If you consider using different concentrations of the same coolant you will find it will be more cost effective.

With every coolant mix on the shop floor there is also a price tag in addition to the cost per gallon.  For each coolant mix added you must take into consideration more labor and more capital equipment is required to prepare, monitor, store and reclaim each additional mix.  Streamlining your coolant mixes will also reduce freight charges, storage in the warehouse, and reduce the amount of coolant mixers required.  Not to mention the efficiency of the coolant recycling systems when fewer coolant variations are processed.
