Fluid solutions to address steel manufacturing's most challenging processes

Steel manufacturers often encounter process situations that dramatically impact operations. Process fluids, greases, and lubricants can make a big difference by providing cost savings through enhanced performance, improved efficiency and quality, amongst others.

Quaker Chemical Corporation, a longstanding supplier of steel processing and maintenance products, will present fluid solutions at AISTech 2018 Conference & Exposition – the steel industry's premier technology event from 7th – 9th May at the Pennsylvania Convention Centre in Philadelphia, PA.

AISTech features technical presentations focused on steel related topics including steelmaking, finishing, engineering, and equipment technologies.

At the conference, Quaker technical experts will present papers at the cold rolling, hot rolling, tube and pipe, lubrication and hydraulics sessions, including: "Lubrication Strategies for Rolling Hard Steel Types," by Bas Smeulders, Research Scientist, on 7th May at 09:30; "A Chemical Method to Decrease Oxide Scale Generation in Hot Rolling," by Weijia Jin, Development Scientist, at 14:00 pm and "Evaluation of Fluid Performance for Thread Cutting of Premium Pipe Connections Using a Cut Tapping Operation on AISI 4140 Steel Using a Vertical Machining Center," by Robert Evans, Research Scientist, at 15:00.

"Rolling Mill Bearing Lubrication: An Innovative Grease Technology Helps Reduce Total Cost of Ownership," by Bruno Sanchez, Global Business Development Manager – Greases, will feature on 8th May at 15:00.

At Booth 2403, Quaker, a global event sponsor of AISTech 2018, will feature its entire steel process fluid portfolio, ranging from cleaners, rolling oils, corrosion preventives, surface treatment, greases, and hydraulic fluids.
