Included in its expansive product array at IMTS 2012, MAG will be showcasing its newest line of metalworking coolants for the booming hydraulic fracturing industry. The Cyclo Cool 4000 and 4100 metalworking fluids are uniquely formulated for machining the tough-to-cut proprietary stainless and heat-treated steels used in forgings used in pump parts and similar equipment for fracking operations in the oil and gas industry.
“The stainless and heat-treated steels used in hydraulic fracking pumps are among the toughest to machine, because the alloys have been developed to withstand extreme pressures and operating environments,” said Roy (Sonny) Truett, Product Manager, MAG Productivity Solutions. “Industry growth is driving demand for these parts, so to achieve the necessary production rates and increase tool life, a premium, high-pressure, low-foaming metalworking fluid is critical to meeting customers’ manufacturing goals.”
To handle intense pressures (10,000 to 30,000 psi), fracking pumps are machined from heavy blocks of stainless and alloy steels. Cyclo Cool 4000 and 4100 metalworking fluids are specifically formulated for extreme high-heat applications, such as deep-hole drilling, tapping and hogging of these tough-to-cut metals. These multipurpose fluids can also be used on aluminum, bronze, brass and copper making them ideal for shop-wide applications in individual machines and central systems.
Cyclo Cool 4000 is a heavy-duty cutting fluid containing a combination of extreme pressure additives, esters and mineral oil for physical lubricity – ideal for machining fracking pumps and other severe-duty applications.
Cyclo Cool 4100 is an ultra-high-performance coolant formulated with a unique blend of sulfurized and chlorinated extreme pressure additives for heavy machining and grinding of ferrous and non-ferrous material, including titanium. Cyclo Cool 4100 is extremely low foaming and has high stability for applications where hard water build-up presents a problem.
