|QUANTOFIX® Nitrite/pH Test Strip|
|Quick and easy determination of Nitrite and pH in cooling lubricants|
|This test allows the quick and easy determination of Nitrite and pH in cooling lubricants. The easy dip-and-read-procedure provides a reliable result within 1 minute.|
When metal parts are machined (drilling, cutting…) cooling lubricants or coolants are indispensable to guarantee the quality of the work piece as well as the lifetime of the machines.
QUANTOFIX® Nitrite/pH is for the rapid and reliable control of two important parameters in cooling lubricants.
The Nitrite test is an indicator for bacterial growth in the cooling lubricant cycle. It allows early counteractive measures and therefore increases the lifetime of the cooling lubricant. Thus, significant cost savings are possible.
A weekly determination of the Nitrite concentration is also recommended to protect workers from carcinogenic nitrosamine. High levels of nitrite in the cooling lubricant foster the formation of this carcinogenic compound.
The pH-test is specially optimized for the demands of cooling lubricant analysis. Small meshed testing cycles allow an early detection of pH changes. Counteractive measures can be performed to keep the pH at the optimal level. This ensures optimal protection against corrosion inhibits bacterial growth and therefore reduces maintenance costs.
