About Our rocol medium starter kit (1-8 machines)

This medium starter kit for testing metalworking fluids has been created in partnership with Rocol lubricants.

This kit will allow you to test the pH, bacteria and fungi levels of your MWF as recommended in HSE MW5 Guidelines.

What's in The Rocol Medium test kit

This kit contains: 

  • 1 X MX8 Dipslide incubator (2 dipslide capacity incubator) for incubating microbiological dipslides.
  • 2 X boxes of Metalworking Fluid testing dipslides (20 dipslides).
  • 1 X full colour instruction manual with step by step instructions (including photos) and record sheets.

Easy to follow user manual / Record book

All of our Rocol kits come with a comprehensive manual explaining in detail how to perform each of the tests required. Each test guide has full step by step explanations accompanied with photos making sure that anyone can perform the tests without prior training.

The manual also includes:

  • Full colour photo comparison charts making it easy to see if your fluid's bacterial / yeasts / mould levels are too high.
  • Recording charts allowing you to record your bacteria, yeasts, moulds and pH levels. It also includes space for fluid concentration, temperature and tramp oil readings. This makes it a perfect log book to show any HSE inspector all the details they will need on a visit to your site.

Simple to use Incubator

This incubator is ideal for small scale incubation (1 -8 machines). The eight chambers allow 8 dipslides to be incubated at the same time.

There are no lengthy set up procedures, simply plug in and go (the incubator is already pre-calibrated for MCBMT2 dipsides). All you need to do is allow the incubator to stabilise for 20 minutes and then you can begin incubating as the temperature is already pre set.

Check your pH Levels

Testing the pH of metal cutting fluid can indicate whether levels are corrosive. Low pH levels can be caused by the presence of bacteria. This is why using dipslides and pH testing together gives a fuller indication of the 'health' and quality of your cutting fluid.
Ideally, you do not want your cutting fluid to have a lower pH than approx 8.5 as any fluid that is too acidic will corrode metals. However, you don't want a pH level that is too high as it can pose a risk to health (skin irritation etc).

With this kit, you have the option to add a digital pH tester which offers accurate testing within the 0.0 to 14.0 pH range. The tester is battery operated and waterproof and comes with a sachet of pH buffer solution. The pH tester is offered at a special discount with this kit.

This pH tester also measures temperature which is now a weekly recommended test in HSE guidelines for metal cutting fluid monitoring.

Check your fluid concentration

Testing the concentration of your metalworking fluids can be done using a refractometer. Testing the fluid concentration is important as having a high or low concentration can lead to issues such as poor lubrication, machine breakages and microbiological contamination.

With this kit, you have an option to add a refractometer at a 10% discount.
