Westec 2012 Preview: MAG's Cyclo Cool Series
MAG's new Cyclo Cool 900 and 5000 series synthetic coolants are additive free, low foaming and specially formulated for machining titanium, Inconel, beryllium copper, hardened steels, stainless steels and other superalloys. Developed for the aerospace industry, the new coolants are a suitable ideal replacement for semi-synthetics and soluble oils, delivering significant cost savings with lower initial cost, longer tool life, increased stock removal rates, reduced housekeeping, long sump life, and freedom from biocides/fungicides/pH adjusters. These new coolants use unique synthetic formulations to provide boundary lubricant properties, while penetrating the heat barrier in the cutting zone, even at lower pressures (300 to 400 psi), to absorb heat from the tool and part, and minimize chemical reactions between tools and workpieces. Both coolants are clear in use, permitting excellent visibility in the cutting zone. Low-foaming Cyclo Cool 900 series coolants are intended for use in high-pressure, through-tool delivery systems at up to 2000 psi, as well as flood coolant for chip flushing. The lubrication package in the series varies to cover a range of applications from lighter duty high speed (10,000 to 15,000 rpm) milling to heavy duty drilling and tapping. Three formulations are available to match the severity of the application, utilizing concentrations in the 5-7 percent range. 900 series coolants reject 99 percent of tramp oil, allowing easy removal and reducing mist levels.
Cyclo Cool 5000 is an anionic synthetic cutting fluid developed for severe to extreme metalworking applications at delivery pressures of 300 to 400 psi or intermittent high pressure. It utilizes a hybrid blend of patented lubricants that allows it to exceed the performance of high-oil containing semi-synthetics, chlorinated soluble oils and other heavy-duty synthetics. It is proven to deliver increased tool life with higher cutting feeds, increased feed rates and depth of cut. Its unique EP package provides heat-activated boundary lubrication, while eliminating chlorine, sulphur and phosphorus. Cyclo Cool 5000 provides corrosion control.
