Mixing of metalworking fluids: perfect concentration ensures stable emulsion

No matter whether the emulsion is mixed manually or with automatic mixing equipment: Either way, a precise concentration is key for a stable emulsion and optimized lubrication

An ideal water quality is a prerequisite for the mixing of metalworking fluids. Once the water quality is evaluated and – if necessary – improved, the mixing process can start.

Determining the concentration

The typical concentration lies between 3 and 15%. A lot of know-how and experience is needed to determine a recommended concentration as accurately as possible. In order to do just that, the Blaser experts evaluate all production processes, tools and materials in detail.

It is important that the mixing process is performed in a correct way to ensure a stable emulsion with finely dispersed oil droplets. The mixing can either be done automatically or manually.

Jetmix ensures best results

The easiest and most precise option is the automatic mixing. By using automatic equipment such as the Blaser Swisslube Jetmix or Mini-Jetmix, the best results can be achieved. The automatic mixing equipment from Blaser maintains a constant concentration, and a specially shaped nozzle creates shockwaves that keep the emulsion droplets small to form a finely dispersed emulsion. It is important to ensure that the emulsion cannot enter the drinking water system – that can be guaranteed with the installation of a backflush valve.
