Control and maintenance of metalworking fluids

Choosing the correct metal working fluid with the right balance of safety and performance is crucial  in improving productivity and ensuring the protection of employees.

When in use the composition of a MWF will change because of chemical deterioration and/or contamination (such as tramp oil) and also microbiological contamination.

It is therefore critical to monitor MWFs to maximize product performance and ensure health & safety requirements are met. A full fluid condition monitoring program is the best way to achieve this. ExxonMobil and Ingelbeen-Soete can advise and assist you regarding the best way to install an efficient fluid monitoring program by:


  • conducting regular monitoring of MWFs concentration, acidity, nitrites, bacterias and water condition
  • advise on the MWF condition monitoring results
  • Training of operators for MWF maintenance
