Master Chemical has revealed how its Trim C270 synthetic coolant concentrate has helped Sauer Danfoss eliminate mineral emulsion odours and improve machine cleanliness.

Sauer Danfoss supplies markets throughout the world with its hydrostatic transmissions, steering components, motors, valves, open-circuit products and electro-hydraulic controls.

The manufacturing site that experienced these coolant problems is responsible for the production of machine pumps.

Part of the pump-manufacturing process involves milling, drilling and grinding the pump’s cast iron cover and it was the coolant in these machines that was ultimately replaced with Master Chemical’s Trim C270.

This product was introduced to operate where high coolant velocities are needed to achieve maximum productivity.

It is formulated to produce little or no foam, mist or odour.

Despite being free from chlorine and sulphur, it has sufficient EP lubricity for all of the Sauer Danfoss machining operations.

In a trial using Trim, the test machine became cleaner and the fluid ran clear with no odour.

From the operator’s point of view, the clarity of the fluid and minimal foaming also allowed better visibility of the machining process.

The success of this trial led to Trim C270 being installed in a further three machines.

In turn, the entire metalworking shop was changed over to this Master Chemical synthetic coolant concentrate.

Three years later, Sauer Danfoss continues to report on the cleanliness of its machines and the company also confirms significant savings too.

This is the result of a reduction in downtime of between 15-20 per cent coupled with a 25 per cent cut in fluid consumption.

The Coolant Management Company

Master Chemical develops and markets a comprehensive metalworking fluid
programme.  Its products are cutting and grinding fluids, cutting oils,
washing and cleaning compounds and rust preventatives.  They are all
marketed under the brand name, TRIM.

Since 1990 Master Chemical Europe has provided a dedicated sales and
manufacturing service for Europe.  In that time it has also become the
centre of excellence for product development to meet the specific production
needs of European manufacturers.

Its research has led to the introduction of a range of water- and vegetable
ester based formulations that are non-hazardous yet offer superb production

The need for this type of metalworking fluid is driven by EU regulation and
as a result Master Chemical Europe is now the leading manufacturer of
application-specific metalworking fluids.

When used in conjunction with Master Chemical’s trademark coolant management
strategies, these products provide optimum productivity and significant
operating cost reduction.

To provide greater capacity for this work the company recently moved to new
premises that include a laboratory that is three times bigger than its

Master Chemical Europe is now responsible for supporting an ever-expanding
distributor network, extending from Portugal in the south to Russia and
Scandinavia in the north and east.
