Bandsaw Mist System Coolant

Most┬ámetal sawing operations can become cost-effective with the use of the┬áproper mix of coolant on a well maintained bandsaw. Proper coolant usage improves cutting rates by balancing the combination of cooling and lubrication of the blade. Quality coolant improves the cut finish and can extend blade life by as much as 20%. The sawing operation generates extreme heat when chips are sheared from the material and from the friction of metal-to-metal contact at high speeds. Using a coolant — flood-applied or mist — reduces the heat generated by these sources. Coolant also prevents metal chips from welding to the tooth …
