If you are into machining and use metalworking fluids like coolants, washing chemicals, rust preventive oils, you should definitely watch this video.
Video is a discussion between Ajinkya Kelkar- Director, Innovation Filter System and Transor India and Ameeth Kkaulgud- Director, Polychem.
We drill deep about various metalworking fluids that Polychem manufacture and how manufacturers can use these metalworking fluids effectively.
Please subscribe to our channel- Think Filter. Also, please mention the topics of your interest related to manufacturing, filtration, mechanical engineering etc. in the comments and we will arrange them.
