Fuchs are rolling ahead with outstanding coolant technology

FUCHS Lubricants (UK) Plc, and parent company FUCHS Petrolub AG, are pleased to announce the approval of ECOCOOL S761B metalworking fluid by Rolls Royce under CSS 129 and CSS 131 specifications. ECOCOOL S761B can now be used by any Rolls Royce facility or subcontractor as a heavy duty coolant and as a creep feed grinding fluid.

The Rolls Royce approval is the latest addition to an ongoing list of achievements for FUCHS' ECOCOOL S761B, including prestigious Boeing BAC 5008 and Pratt & Whitney PMC 9346-1 approvals. Rolls Royce's Fluid Management Committee, in conjunction with Nottingham University, tested ECOCOOL S761B to extreme performance parameters before revealing their verdict. "The rigorous testing conducted by Rolls Royce proves our fluid is capable of working in even the most demanding of conditions," states Richard Rogers, FUCHS European sector coordinator for aerospace, "it affirms that all the intensive research and hard work which has gone into developing this fluid has reached fruition".

FUCHS Lubricants (UK) Plc, an AS9100 approved company, have been working hard, alongside their global counterparts, to develop and produce a coolant for the next generation of aircraft which is able to significantly extend tool life whilst providing excellent surface finish. Their global research team developed ECOCOOL S761B, a high performance soluble oil coolant for use in both ferrous and non-ferrous metalworking applications, primarily designed for machining hard metals such as titanium (including Ti 6-4 and Ti-5553).

An independent study, carried out at Warwick University, found ECOCOOL S761B to be the best performing product in terms of tool wear, offering 100% better performance than FUCHS' closest competitor's product. Diluted with water for use at 5- 10% concentration, ECOCOOL S761B is a breakthrough for titanium machining. "We are very pleased with the results of this study", says Jill Cowell, FUCHS' UK Aerospace industry specialist, "it confirms our own findings that ECOCOOL S761B is a real breakthrough for titanium machinists and can offer significant cost saving benefits"

The global aerospace division of FUCHS Petrolub AG, the world's largest independent lubricant company, is headed by Mr Rogers, Jonatha n Chow, who is responsible for the Americas, and Cono Balbo who handles China, Japan, Indonesia and Taiwan. Reporting in to them are industry specialists based in the field, such as Ms Cowell, who are able to provide new ideas and advice on the latest developments in aerospace. "Having a dedicated global aerospace team allows FUCHS to draw on all our resources and expertise to develop pioneering products, such as ECOCOOL S761B, for the aerospace industry", says Mr Rogers.
