Many industrial and manufacturing processes require the use of
After all, coolant plays a critical role in both lubrication and temperature regulation. It’s vital in
metalworking, machining and many other industrial processes—any that use or create heat.
From cutting, grinding and machining oil-coated metal parts, and because CNC machining centers leak
hydraulic oil, coolant quickly picks up tramp oil, particulate matter and other impurities,
mandating regular upkeep. Coolant often contains oil as an ingredient,...
When some think about oil on water, they think only of oil
spills in open water. “But mixing oil and water is quite common in the manufacturing world,” Jim Petrucci
says. “People who use water to any degree in manufacturing are going to get oil in it, whether it’s on
purpose or by accident,” he explains.
The global demand for beverage cans will
increase between two and three percent in 2015, according to a recent forecast by Alcoa, one of the world’s
leading suppliers of aluminum canstock.
With the number of cans rolling off production lines fast approaching one-half trillion a year, canmakers are
constantly challenged to optimize their plant operations. Each step of can manufacturing – from drawing and
ironing to curing and finishing – offers opportunity for improvement. But let’s...
Plant personnel are always looking for new tools and equipment to help them run their facility more efficiently. In many manufacturing and processing plants, oily water is present, which prevents a plant from functioning efficiently.
Water has several purposes in a manufacturing or processing facility. It can be used for cooling machinery, washing down equipment or in...
