The Haaga 497 Profi-line sweeper is the next in the range of new generation sweepers with the Turbo patented three brush sweeping system. With new additions to the sweeper performance has been enhanced in this new range.
Changes to the bin, sweeping plate and dust seals around the third brush have all improved the sweeping performance. New ergonomic handle for fatigue free operation. With a guiding roller and brush guider on one side only, this gives the added advantage of sweeping into corners, the other side with no roller allows the protruding brush to sweep better under an overlapping edge.
Eliminator is a speciality hand cleaner designed specifically to remove paints, adhesives and other resin based products which standard industrial strength hand cleaners are unable to remove.
Eliminator is based on a unique blend of biodegradable ester solvents. No petroleum distillate solvents are used. The incorporation of ester solvents in place of petroleum distillate solvents gives eliminator its uncompromising paint and resin dissolving ability.
Industrial grade lubricant that you can use in the house, garage and shop. In laboratory tests, ProTecta with its extreme pressure additives withstands 5 times the lubricating pressure of the leading brands to eliminate squeaks and lubricate longer. ProTecta’s advanced formula provides a superior lubricating film that continues to provide protection when the oil dries. It adheres to metal better than other spray lubricants, and it cleans most surfaces and quickly penetrates and loosens frozen or rusted metal parts. Makes all other spray oils obsolete! Resists water and drives moisture from working surfaces. Evaporates leaving a protective, long lasting, non-sticky, dust-free film.

Coolant can dramatically affect the performance of cutting tools, which can
impact the cost of your operation. Consider these guidelines for using coolant:
Cutting fluids perform two basic functions in drilling, milling, and threading:
1. to reduce heat generated in cut;
2. to lubricate the tool.
Water-based coolant helps to cool the chip when it is sheared from the workpiece material.
In an age where industrial sealants are a staple item within the construction industry, there is concern regarding the long-term effects on the environment for a clean and green future.
Three essential questions:
1. How do silicones enter the environment?
2. Where do they end up?
3. Do they have any effects?
All cutting fluids have, to a greater or lesser extent, the potential to cause health issues for machine operators. These risks are based on the external (skin) or internal contact involved in machining work; including the touching of parts and tooling, being splashed by the fluid, having mist settle on the skin or via the inhalation of mist.
The key to minimising this risk is the full evaluation of the machining operation; this process starts with the selection of the most suitable cutting fluid.
While there are many factors that affect the life of a cutting fluid, such as dilution control, tramp oil, top up rates etc. the key to ensuring maximum sump life from any fresh fill is machine cleanliness.
Why Clean? During use, machine tool fluid systems become contaminated with tramp oil machining debris, hard water soaps etc. which can be found on the sides and bottoms of tanks. These deposits are ideal breeding grounds for both bacterial and fungal infections and eventually become “biomasses” that can shorten fluid life.
