Re: Cutting Oil Life Extension

I really do believe that the future of straight oils for cutting will be dominated by soy. Many facilities here in Iowa wouldn't think of putting anything but soy in their new $600,000+ equipment because cutting your retooling in half due to less wear & tear also means that your investment is protected twice as well.
The increased speed rates is just money in the bank too.
With central cyclonic filtration/recycling system there may not be any disposal of oils.

My thanks to Gary Hunt, Richard Illig, Sue Schauls and Deb Jacobson for their responses to Mr. Vinsonís question.  We happen to be working with a NH metal fabricator that generates > 3,000 gallons of spent machine lubricant and coolant, per month.  They just asked us the exact same question and the replies to Mr. Vinsonís query will be invaluable to us.


Although some people find it annoying to deal with a string of possibly irrelevant list serve responses, there are just as many, like me, who appreciate and surreptitiously use the resulting information.

It depends on the type of cutting fluid that is being used, the quantities involved and the machining requirements. There are a number of well proven ways that   synthetic cutting fluids can be recycled and a lot of info available. Check out http://wrrc.p2pays.org/industry/indsectinfo.asp?INDSECT=45 . References are a little dated, but the basics have not changed. Good luck.

Greetings from Busan Korea.  Jeff and I are in a meeting and we are being asked about alternatives to extend the life of cutting oil.  Does anyone have an option for reuse of cutting oil, or any specific options for this company?
