Devcon Stop-Seize Lubricant is a heavy duty, high temperature lubricant that prevents galling, seizing and corrosion during assembly and assures easier disassembly. Also reduces wear in heavy pressure applications. It protects against seizure of metal parts. It is suitable for easy assembly and dismantling without seizure or distortion of new and overhauled equipment/machinery and all facets of engineering as found in steel and mining industries, refinery and petrochemical plants, mobile, brick and tile works, and many other associated industries.
ITW Polymers & Fluids, the manufacturers of Galmet, Molybond, Rocol, Devcon, Epirez and Permatex is now offering SCRUB® to the Australian and New Zealand market!
SCRUBS® wipes are second-to-none in quality and effectiveness because nobody understands how to apply the right chemical to the right substrate like us!
Metal Corrosion occurs where metals are left exposed to moisture within the air. This is due to a reaction with oxygen which in turn creates rust and eventually leads to corrosion. Perform these simple steps to give your new steel the best protection and longevity from corrosion.
Step 1 – Clean It
1. Remove all rough surfaces such as sharp edges, mill scale and weld splatter by abrading, sanding or wire brushing.
2. Remove contaminants and foreign particles using a clean cloth and a suitable non-residue solvent such as Galmet® Enamel Spraying Thinner 300C.
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.
WRAS approved products could be the next stage in a series of long standing developments towards a safer supply of potable water.
Historically, lead piping used to be the primary form of distributing potable water. This was due to its widespread use in industrial applications, as well as its natural occurrence in soils as a result of local geological conditions. As of the 1970s lead piping has been prohibited for distributing potable water and was considered the starting point for this journey towards a safer water supply.
The overall performance of any cutting fluid emulsion is partially dependant on the quality of the “make water” used to prepare it.
Quality refers to three main features of the water:-
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.
