Oil and Chip Treatments
Machining chips with cutting oil or drilling oils, which have not been treated by centrifugation or other methods, normally contain 20 to 30 % of cutting fluids and are considered hazardous waste, so they must be managed through an authorized manager, with an additional cost to the company.
A correct chip treatment allows the recovery of the chips for reuse or sale, as well as the recovery and reuse of the cutting fluid.
