Metal cutting / lathe cutting fluid microbiological testing is very important.
To avoid contact with contaminated fluids, you may adopt some of the following precautions:
In addition to the above, frequent bacteria testing of metalworking fluids is essential for a healthy working environment. Bacterial contamination of the fluid makes it degrade after a certain amount of use and high bacteria levels will make it unsafe for use. Skin and respiratory irritation / infection are a risk here and contaminated fluids can cause breathing problems such as asthma as well as dermatitis. Eye, nose and throat irritation can also occur.
In addition to affecting human health, high bacteria levels in metalworking fluids can make it more corrosive to metals and machinery and can cause damage to both.
Weekly dipslide tests are advised by the Health and Safety Executive. For further reading on this, you can visit their site:
Our BTM2 dipslides are ideal for this purpose. These slides test for aerobic bacteria, fungi, yeasts and moulds. This metal cutting fluid dipslide tests for yeasts / moulds on one side and total count bacteria on the other.
