Sustainable metal working fluid systems: best and common practices for metal working fluid maintenance and system design in Swedish industry

Kurdve, Martin LU and Daghini, Lorenzo (2012) In International Journal of Sustainable Manufacturing 2(4). p.276-292
Abstract
This paper investigates the function of metal working fluid (MWF)

emulsions in automotive industries in Sweden and looks at how the negative

environmental and health impact of their use can be reduced through means of

monitoring and system design.

Major input to this study has been collected from several of the large

companies in Sweden, through a literature review, interviews, questionnaires,

findings from workshops and comparisons with other countries. The mapping

of this data was carried out, firstly by defining several concepts and terms

related to MWFs in order to give an unambiguous terminology. The MWF

system design, with its impact on economical,... (More)
This paper investigates the function of metal working fluid (MWF)

emulsions in automotive industries in Sweden and looks at how the negative

environmental and health impact of their use can be reduced through means of

monitoring and system design.

Major input to this study has been collected from several of the large

companies in Sweden, through a literature review, interviews, questionnaires,

findings from workshops and comparisons with other countries. The mapping

of this data was carried out, firstly by defining several concepts and terms

related to MWFs in order to give an unambiguous terminology. The MWF

system design, with its impact on economical, environmental and health and

safety parameters, is then described more in detail. Finally, applied monitoring

methodologies are reviewed and analysed in terms of common and best

practices.

Insights gained were formulated as general recommendations for designing

a state-of-the-art sustainable MWF system.

The article gives examples of how these recommendations translate into

practical design features and requirements of monitoring, and maybe of interest

for professionals and researchers working with machining technology, process

fluid system design and control methodology. (Less)
