Articles Description
Occupational Health and Safety Stakeholders Invited to Join Standardization Effort Individuals involved in regulatory affairs, industrial hygiene, as well as microbiology, antimicrobial pesticide selection and use processes, are invited to discuss the proposed standard "Selecting Antimicrobial Pesticides for Metal Removal Fluids"…
Dry Steel Turning Pays Off With Lower Parts Costs, Longer Tool Life Wet turning is an old habit that costs money and can compromise productivity, especially with advances in carbide turning insert technology that now make dry turning more attractive than ever before. Dry turning is not appropriate everywhere. Using carbine inserts, thin-walled parts or those with tolerances tighter than 0.001" can be subject to excessive thermal distortion if turned without coolant.

Assessing the Effectiveness of Noise Control Regulations and Policies

Most of the developed countries throughout the world have been concerned about the effects of community and occupational noise exposure on their populations and have implemented national and local noise control regulations and policies over the past 25-30 years.
Filtration Systems - The good, the bad, and the ugly Today’s soupy world of coolants and their method of filtration are about microns and microbes. Like a bacteria-infested swimming pool that’s been treated, some misconceptions are clearing up as well.
   
Books Description
Why Coolants Become Unusable Coolants and cutting oils become unusable when they become excessively contaminated with bacterial, tramp oil, metal fines, or wastes. They can break down from use, but are most commonly broken down by bacteria growing in the system.
