6 Easy Steps to Ensure your Coolant Stays in Tip-Top Condition

If you’re shutting down for a period of time then there are a few things you can put in place now to ensure you can get your machines straight back up and running after the celebrations…

1: Skim any tramp oil from the surface of your coolant – this will allow your coolant to breathe & prolong its life.

2: Remove any solid contaminants from your coolant, such as swarf & turnings.

3: Restore the level of your coolant to more than 75% of the sump volume.

4: Check dilution levels on each machine, make sure they are at the upper end of the recommended scale.

5: Check the pH level of your coolant – if below 8.6 apply 0.2% of biocide.

6: From now until you close for the weekend, run your machines as much as possible to ensure your coolant is oxygenated.

By following these 6 simple steps, your machines will be ready to go as you re-open & your coolant will be working at it’s best!
