KOOLRite™ 2540 Heavy Duty Synthetic Cutting Fluid

KOOLRite 2540 is a proven, new generation synthetic cutting fluid that replaces old style synthetics, soluble oils and semi- synthetics. JTM's unique BioArmor Technology has outstanding bio-stability giving complete control of bacteria without the use of bactericides. The result is a coolant that will stop sump odors, give you exceptionally long sump life and a clean, comfortable, safe work environment for machine operators.

KOOLRite 2540 is designed with new technology eliminating the use of mid- and long-chain chlorinated paraffins and sulfur for heavy duty operations on all ferrous metals. KOOLRite 2540 is also excellent for non metallic machining.

KOOLRite 2540 will reject tramp oils, allowing clean coolant to be delivered to the chip/tool interface keeping your machine tool clean with a minimum of residual film while providing excellent corrosion control.

Directions for Use

The sump life of this coolant, as with any other coolant will be greatly enhanced if charged to a clean system. You can utilize JTM's Sump Cleaner to disinfect your sump. KOOLRite 2540 can be metered through automatic dispensing systems available from JTM. Contact your representative regarding cleaning procedures and dispensers. Always add the KOOLRite 2540 concentrate to the water and not the water to the concentrate. Proper maintenance in removing extraneous oils is beneficial for extended coolant life. The concentration can be monitored by refractive index.
