Best Practice: Eliminate Waste Water Disposal from CNC Plasma Cutting Systems with GreenCut Plasma

LubeCorp and its customer, a pioneering structural fabricator from Oregon, developed a best practice to eliminate waste water disposal from CNC plasma cutting systems. The customer has not disposed of the waste water from its 15,000 gallon water table for the past 8 years by using LubeCorp`s GreenCut Plasma Arc Water-Table Fluid in conjunction with appropriate circulation and filtration system.

GreenCut Significantly Outperforms Competing Fluids in Bandsaws

GreenCut Cutting Fluid was tested in bandsaws by a leading provider of steel in Canada and the United States. Greencut showed significantly higher performance than competing fluids.

COMPANY: Varsteel Ltd.hyd_mech_ptwo




140% Increase in Saw Blade Life

● Annual Savings Estimate $50,000

● Reduced downtime by 30%

● Increased Customer Satisfaction

● SAFE for workers

● Easy maintenance

Varsteel Ltd. is a leading provider of steel, rebar, pipe, piling and structural steel in Canada and the United States. Varsteel tested 4 different lubricants in its band saws in order to increase life of blades used for cutting of steel. It was found that GreenCut Cutting Fluid from LubeCorp Manufacturing significantly increases life of the blades from 10-15 eight-hour shifts experienced by the other three lubricants to 28-32 eight-hour shifts. The company reduced maintenance time by 30% with estimated total annual savings of $50,000.

By utilizing GreenCut, Varsteel increased customer satisfaction. Customers no longer had to clean the steel products from Varsteel and could process them (paint, powder-coat) directly after purchase.

The saw operators also like GreenCut because it is safe for their health, prevents breathing and skin problems, doesn`t cause slippery surfaces and is simple to maintain by checking the coolant with a pH strip at the beginning of each shift.
