CASE STUDY – MACHINING & GRINDING
A leading supplier of CRDI fuel injection pumps to automotive OEMs in India was looking to:
- Reduce coolant consumption in precision machining of steel materials
- Improve machine cleanliness and corrosion protection
- Use Chlorine-free technology
The manufacturing facility included a total of 24 machines, with a combined annual coolant volume of approximately 14,000 liters (3,684 gals).
Quaker introduced QUAKERCOOL® 7101 AFH in one hydraulic head line, requiring 600 liters of coolant. After
a trial period of six months, Quaker was able to show – on an annualized basis – over 38% savings in oil cost.
In addition, operators recognized a positive improvement in machine cleanliness, and noted that there was no
compromise in tool or sump life.
