FUCHS ECOCOOL BS 2 is a water-miscible, milky-type soluble oil containing a high level of mineral oil. This has been applied for many years as a general-purpose water-based cutting fluid. It is also used as a rolling fluid in the tube rolling industry.




Key Features of Fuchs Ecocool BS2:

  • Multi-Metal Compatibility: Suitable for use with a variety of metals including steel, cast iron, and non-ferrous metals, making it a versatile option for diverse machining environments.
  • Excellent Cooling and Lubrication: Helps to optimize cutting performance and extend tool life by reducing friction and heat generation during the machining process.
  • Corrosion Protection: Offers excellent protection against rust and corrosion on both the machine parts and the workpieces.
  • Worker Safety: Formulated to be safer for operators, reducing potential skin and respiratory irritants compared to more traditional coolants.
  • Environmental Considerations: Designed to meet environmental standards, helping facilities maintain compliance with regulations regarding the disposal of machining fluids.

Application and Usage:

  • Dilution: The concentration of Ecocool BS2 in water typically ranges between 3% to 10%, depending on the machining operation and the hardness of the water. It’s important to measure the concentration using a refractometer to maintain the optimal balance for effective lubrication and cooling.
  • System Maintenance: Regular maintenance of the coolant system is crucial. This includes monitoring the concentration, pH levels, and the presence of contaminants such as tramp oil and metal fines. Regular cleaning and system checks help prevent bacterial growth and ensure the coolant performs effectively.
  • Storage and Handling: Store the coolant in a cool, dry place and ensure that the container is sealed properly when not in use to prevent contamination and degradation of the fluid.

Purchasing Considerations:

The 20-litre container offers a cost-effective solution for larger shops but requires proper management to maintain the fluid’s effectiveness over time.

Fuchs Ecocool BS2 is well-suited for facilities looking for a reliable, efficient, and safe coolant to improve their machining processes.
