Preparing Machines & Metalworking Fluids for Shutdown

 In these unprecedented times, it is likely you may need to prepare for a shutdown with very little notice. Chem Arrow Europe has put together some helpful tips to ensure your machine fluid remains in the best condition possible.

Step 1.
Clear/blow all swarf off the machine table and from inside the machine.
Step 2.
Ensure your ArrowCool product in each machine is left at the upper end of the recommended concentration level.
Step 3.
Remove any tramp oil from the surface of the tank.
Step 4.
Remove any debris and excessive swarf from the tank.
Step 5.
Coat all bare steel surfaces with a recognised corrosion preventative.
Step 6.
Leave the machine doors open in order for air to circulate freely.
Step 7.
On your return check the concentration and turn on the pumps to circulate the fluid.

Speak to your Account Manager about Chem Arrow Systems Cleaner and Rust Preventatives for any finished parts ensuring you have stock of these products prior to closing and ready for your return.

Chem Arrow is committed to working with you to get through this difficult time and we look forward to seeing you again when things return to normal. In the meantime, we are available by phone or email for any support.
