Types of metalworking fluids
Depending on the types of ingredients, metalworking fluids can be divided into the following sections.
Non-water miscible oils
These metalworking fluids mainly contain a single base oil. That base oil can be ester oil, mineral oil, or synthetic oil. However, to increase the sustainability of this metalworking fluid, companies are using recycled oils in the past few years. These metalworking Fluids are not susceptible to microbial contamination. As a result, these fluids have a long service life.
Water miscible oil
These metalworking fluids are mixed with water before usage. The percentage of mixed water depends on the type of machining and the product. Having said that, you need to take the help of an emulsifier to combine the oil with water.
Synthetic and semisynthetic fluids
These kinds of metalworking fluids are water-miscible types. However, these metalworking fluids are free of oil and it does not require any help from the emulsifiers.
