What is a Dipslide Test?

A dipslide test is a reliable way to check for both bacterial and fungal contamination, which may be present in metalworking fluids. 

Regular dipslide testing forms part of our coolant monitoring service, and is conducted in accordance with HSE guidelines.

What are the Advantages of Dipslide Testing? 

The advantage of regular dipslide testing means you are ensuring your coolant is in a good condition. You are also helping to reduce the risk of health problems with machine operatives. 

It also means you are following guidance from the HSE for the safe handling of metalworking fluids.

How Long is a Dipslide Left After Testing For the Results?

Dipslides are incubated at a temperature of 30 degrees for a period of 48 hours to check for bacteria, and then a further 24 hours to check for yeasts and moulds.

This incubation period ensures that quantifiable microbacterial growth is achieved.
