Q8Oils’ team of field service technicians provide on-site monitoring and expert advice that can lead to increased coolant life and performance, refined cutting and forming processes and reduced machine downtime. This on-site condition monitoring service is designed to support customers of Q8Oils’ metalworking fluids.

A variety of tests are carried out to ensure that Q8Oils’ products are running properly, including a visual inspection, determination of lubricant concentration, pH monitoring, the measurement of conductivity, the measurement of total dissolved solids, the measurement of biocide concentration and the measurement of bio-burden.

Q8Oils also offers new customers the opportunity to trial soluble and neat metalworking fluids on a payment-by-results basis (terms and conditions apply) with clear, mutually agreed objectives. In these cases, the field service team will monitor lubricant performance to ensure the Q8Oils product is fully meeting customers’ requirements.
