HOUGHTO-DRAW® 7060, a non-chlorinated, non-sulphur¬ized biostable soluble oil type metal forming lubricant, was recommended. Quaker Houghton worked with maintenance personnel and conducted a trial for the metal spinning operation utilizing approximately 10% HOUGHTO-DRAW® 7060. After a successful trial, the metal spinning company has now converted their central system to HOUGHTO-DRAW® 7060.

Fire Safety In Hot Forming Hydraulic Presses

2020-03-17T04:57:08-04:00

One of the main risks of fire is linked to the use of mineral oil in the hydraulic systems. At the units, substantial leakage has been observed. Most leakage takes place through accidents like ruptured hoses, or leaking couplings. Mineral oils are highly flammable and are a serious source of fire hazard in high temperature environments and applications close to open flames or red-hot metal parts. The risk is further increased by the rapid and aggressive ignition rate of mineral oils. Today mineral oil dangers present industries with a very real major risk. With QUINTOLUBRIC® 888, this risk can be reduced and managed preventively.
