Liquid Ice Corporation

FAQs

Liquid Ice Corporation is a North Carolina Company dedicated to producing  "State of the Art" metal working fluids for today's machining requirements.  Liquid Ice Coolants are an alternative to oil-based or semi-synthetic coolants. Our fully water-soluble coolants have superb cooling properties and excellent lubricity.

Liquid Ice Coolants have been formulated to provide clear, clean chip flow, with no stickiness on machines, parts or chips. The corrosion inhibitors provide the optimum in tarnish and corrosion prevention on all ferrous and non-ferrous metals.  Best of all, Liquid Ice Coolants will not foam.

Liquid Ice Coolants are and safe to operators. It does not create mists, vapors or odors. Liquid Ice Coolants contain no hazardous or toxic materials.

YES! Unlike synthetics or semi-synthetics, Liquid Ice Coolants does not contain any alcohols, glycols or solvents of any kind which dry out seals and aggressively attack painted surfaces. Therefore it is safe for use on your expensive machine tools.

The tank life of Liquid Ice Coolants is excellent, but varies based with machine usage.  With proper maintenance by the user and good "housekeeping" practices , it will last for 5-7 months in a stand alone machine and is resistant to bacteria and fungus growth in the product.

All of Liquid Ice Corporation products are sold through local distributors. We are building our network and expect to be available at a distributor near you very soon.  You can contact Liquid Ice Corporation at 800-472-5568 for the name of the dealer nearest you, or to request a sample.

A mixture of water with some fresh Liquid Ice coolant concentrate is advisable. Although most of the coolant lost will be water due to vaporization, some of the coolant concentrate will be used as well. As an illustration, assume your machine has a 50 gallon sump and you want to charge the system at 10%. The dilution ratio is 10:1, so 45 gallons of water to 5 gallons of Liquid Ice concentrate. Further assume that the system will lose 10% of its volume daily (5 gallons) through vaporization, evaporation, carry off, etc. For purposes of this illustration, assume that most of that loss is water, say 90% (5 gallons). If the 5 gallons of make up consists of water only, then the overall system is no longer charged at 10%. If this situation is allowed to continue, then in a very short time the actual coolant in the system will be extremely low resulting in loss of performance and protection. A good rule of thumb is to use 1 quart of concentrate to 5-gallons of water for your makeup.

NO! Under most circumstances, Liquid Ice HP, HPX or VP Coolants will not build up foam in your coolant tank or Sump. Under high pressure (200 - 1000 PSI), aeration will cause it to look white instead of its normal clear, colorless appearance. This is perfectly normal, and the coolant will quickly revert back to the fully liquid state within a matter of seconds.

YES, Liquid Ice Coolant will greatly improve sawing of both ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Call us for application specific information.
