Case Study : Graphite Free Plunger Lubricant HiLubric PLNG 63 for Die-Casting

May 1, 2016
Plunger lubricant is necessary for pressing the molten metal into sleeve, plunger tip and piston chamber in the die-casting process. Proper lubrication of the plunger is essential to provide smooth filling of the cavity, reduce energy consumption during the shot and extend the life of the plunger tip and sleeve. Trials were conducted at a leading Die Casting component manufacturer with our HilubricPL-NG-63.

Fluids can play a vital role in ensuring the Safety as well as other requirements. Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid offers possible solutions to meet these needs of the industry. Hydraulic equipments operating near heat source such as molten metal and open flame under extreme heat conditions are potential areas of fire hazard. If the oil used for hydraulic actuation in these machines is mineral oil, then in case of leakage, if this oil comes in contact with heat source it poses grave risk of fire

Traditionally, heavy forgings have been quenched in large volume open tanks using quenching oil. Even though water based polymer quenchants are presently being widely used for quenching of automotive forgings in India due to the many techno- commercial and environmental advantages that they offer; quenching oils are still being widely preferred for the quenching of heavy forgings in India.
