HIGH WATER CONTENT FLUIDS (HFA) – LONGWALL HYDRAULIC FLUIDS

QUINTOLUBRIC® 814-01

Bridger requires their longwall hydraulic fluid to provide high performance characteristics that comply not only with O.E.M. warranty requirements, but also their own high quality standards. By switching to QUINTOLUBRIC® 814-01 and providing engineering support for their mixing system, Quaker helped them meet the required performance standards and reduce maintenance requirements. English

QUINTOLUBRIC® 814-02

Before using QUINTOLUBRIC® 814-02, Massey’s longwall operation experienced high levels of solenoid consumption and solenoid sticking. Since switching, they have achieved more than an 80% reduction in solenoid consumption. English
WATER GLYCOL FLUIDS (HFC)

QUINTOLUBRIC® 702-46 RD

A global supplier of aluminum automotive components manufactures high pressure aluminum die castings for major automotive companies. G.W. Smith, a Quaker Chemical Company, performed a compatibility analysis and was able to demonstrate that QUINTOLUBRIC® 702-46 RD was completely compatible with the competitive fluid, eliminating the need to dump and refresh systems.

QUINTOLUBRIC® 888-46

A major stainless steel producer was having severe reliability problems with the hydraulically operated slab tongs used in their continuous slab caster. To help improve operations, QUINTOLUBRIC® 888-46 was introduced as a potential replacement. First, Quaker helped the account to understand the advantages of changing from water glycol (HFC) fluids to QUINTOLUBRIC® 888-46 (polyol ester based HFD-U). English German

QUINTOLUBRIC® 888-46 – HOT MILL ROLLING

A UK Steel producer was implementing a modification to their passive transfer system (Kick-Out Roll), to help improve the efficiency of their operations. The steel producer replaced their high water containing (80% water, viscosity 46 cSt) hydraulic fluid with QUINTOLUBRIC® 888-46 fully synthetic HFD-U hydraulic fluid. English

QUINTOLUBRIC® 888-46 – PRESS HARDENING

In a press hardening operation the following potential issues may arise: Ruptured hoses, leaking couplings, and disconnected pipework. One automotive parts supplier decided to take the necessary actions to stop these events from happening, and engaged different departments within their organization to look for a solution.
