New Valcool Coolant for Machining

Valenite LLC has completed an update, expansion, and improvement of its ValCOOL product line of specialty cutting fluids and coolants, introducing new formulas and blends that better meet today's machining requirements.

The range of ValCOOL products include synthetic, semi-synthetic and soluble oil cutting fluids. The ValCOOL products feature benefits such as improved bio-stability, strong corrosion prevention, chlorine free options, vapor phase corrosion inhibitors, and cobalt leaching inhibitors (for carbide grinding applications).

ValCOOL products can reduce machine maintenance requirements, improve tool life, produce better surface finishes, help lengthen sump life, and eliminate rancidity. Virtually all of the cutting fluid products meet specific regulatory requirements and can help to minimize rework needs and lower overall costs. Cutting fluids are available blue or undyed.

ValCOOL also offers a machine cleaning application. VAL-U-CLEAN VP is an all-purpose alkaline cleaner with a biocide for machines and sumps for fluid changeouts. It contains a corrosion inhibitor to prevent flash rust for tough cleaning needs.

A wide range of additives are offered to solve multiple coolant problems, including foam depressants and non-silicone defoamers, a broad spectrum bactericide and fungicide for general duty use, industrial strength biocide to prevent fungi and bacterial growth, pH adjusting formulas, fluids to replenish cobalt corrosion inhibitors, plus biocide solutions developed for bacteria, mold, and fungi control in aqueous solutions.

ValCOOL accessories include manual, automatic, economical and multi-stage drum proportioners for mixing cutting fluid concentrates with water in correct ratios, an array of skimmers in various configurations, an oxygenerator that kills anaerobic bacterial by infusing the coolant with oxygen, plus testing supplies including pH strips, an electronic pH meter, and an optical refractometer that reads and displays actual mix concentrations.

Depending upon the ValCOOL product selected, coolants, additives and special fluids may be available in 5-gallon pails, 55-gallon drums, 275-gallon bulk container and a 220-gallon (265-gallon/1000 liter in Canada) disposable bulk container.

As with all Valenite products, the ValCOOL coolants, specialty fluids, additives, cleaners, and accessories are backed by the company's ValPro Customer Service for ordering, pricing and delivery scheduling, plus a technical support staff offering continuously updated product and application data, and recommendations to optimize metal cutting/coolant productivity.
