Metal Working Fluid
One of the primary applications of metalworking fluid is as a lubricant. Strong lubricating properties can reduce wear and tear on tool life, parts, and equipment, prevent overheating, and improve the fidelity of machined parts. Additives can improve the lubricity of metalworking fluids under demanding conditions. For instance, in cases where cutting edges or drills are wearing out too quickly, extreme pressure additives like sulfur can form a protective barrier on the cutting surface, improving the longevity of your equipment.
Operator and Environmental Friendliness
Safer chemistry has an impact on your bottom line, from better staff retention to lower environmental remediation requirements. Surfactants can ensure fluids are less harsh for operators while improving the ease of cleanup. Water soluble and biodegradable base materials can further enhance safety and environmental friendliness.
Foam Control & Other Additives
Foaming is a common problem across many process chemicals, including metalworking fluids. Foaming and frothing can disrupt the flow of metalworking fluid during critical moments, and can cause inaccuracies in fluid level monitoring and maintenance. Additives like mineral oil and silicone or polymer anti-foaming agents can greatly reduce foaming and frothing to deliver more consistent results. These are just a few of hundreds of possible additives to improve the performance of your metalworking fluid.
Fine-Tune Your Products
Metal treatments are as diverse as the products they safeguard. We specialize in refining commodity formulas to deliver effects tailored to your unique requirements. Whether you’re aiming for superior corrosion resistance, enhanced surface finishes, or advanced mechanical properties, our team can collaborate with you to fine-tune your metal treatment formulations. Let’s navigate the intricate landscape of metal treatments together, ensuring your products not only meet but exceed your exact specifications.
Start-to-finish Solutions for Your Most Essential Processes
Something that seems as simple as selecting a cleaner for a multi-stage washer is actually highly complex when you strive for the best and most cost-effective results. Every operation has unique soils that have to be removed from their parts, but that is only part of the equation. By examining the way that soils react over time with the cleaner solution, foaming, sludging and scaling tendencies can all be minimized. Determining the most cost-effective bath life is not as simple as maximizing the number of days between bath dumps; replenishment rates, PM costs and lost efficiency of heat exchangers must all be considered and can increase costs. Any effect the chemistry will have downstream—both in subsequent stages of a washer and in the waste water treatment system—must also be considered.
Custom Corrosion Protection
Metal treatments play a pivotal role in fortifying your products against corrosion. Our expertise involves tailoring formulations with corrosion inhibitors, passivation treatments, and conversion coatings. Whether you need to bolster corrosion resistance in challenging conditions or enhance the longevity of your metal components through strategic treatments, we have the knowledge to fine-tune your formulations.
Maximize Durability With Adhesion Promoters
The durability of your products hinges on effective adhesion and surface preparation. Our metal treatment solutions include adhesion promoters that improve the overall durability of your products. We will elevate the durability of your products through expertly tailored metal treatments.
Chemical Process (Water Waste)
Beginning-to-End Process Water Service
Many of our products, services, and monitoring equipment focus on improving efficiency and quality of end products. Our tailored chemical process for water waste provides value by ensuring regulatory compliance and lowering disposal costs. Rather than merely providing chemistry to neutralize or remove contaminants, we focus on the big picture. Our experts can help you reduce process water contamination throughout production using superior chemistry.
Ensure Regulatory Compliance. Reduce Disposal Fees
Many manufacturing processes result in wastewater with complex composition. From hazardous physical debris to toxic chemicals and heavy metal leeching, the composition of your wastewater can make disposal costly. We can help you reduce disposal fees by simplifying the end composition of water waste. From adsorbent materials to remove organic pollutants to precipitating agents that facilitate removal of dissolved compounds, we’ll help you regulate your process to ensure safer, less complex water waste.
Safer for Workers and the Environment
Enhanced water waste processing can save you time and money, but it can also save lives. Chronic or acute exposure to industrial waste products can be hazardous. At Americo, safety is our top priority. If your industrial process involves exposure to potentially toxic industrial waste, we developed new chemical processes to reduce the impact of exposure.
