Do You Know How To Choose EDM Dielectric Oil

If you are old enough to remember the days of injection mold making with disgusting EDM dielectric oil you qualify to to appreciate how clean, odorless (almost) and safe the fluids found in sinker EDM’s are these days.

I used to smell like a diesel mechanic at the end of the day and often wondered what happened to all those disgusting fumes that soaked into my lungs. After all, the odors we smell are actually tiny particles of matter that get picked up by our noses.

Not only will the use of up-to-date EDM oil enhance your profits, it will also boost morale of the EDM department and not be offensive to visiting customers.

Advantages of quality EDM dielectric oil

  • Faster machining speeds-the newer oils are highly refined and purified to be more efficient. They are engineered to burn cleaner, thus producing a finer finish more quickly.
  • Less smoke-the smoke produced from high amperage burns can produce quite a bit of toxic smoke, which must be vented to the outside. Even then, what becomes of the smoke?
  • Longer fluid life-because they enable electrical discharge machining to be more efficient, the heat and sludge does not degrade the oil as quickly. This can mean quite a savings in material and time.
  • Easy on the skin-many operators complain of skin irritation from the old kerosene based fluids. The new synthetic edm oils are much easier on the skin.
  • Does not evaporate-your oil will last longer, and your shop will not smell like a diesel engine repair shop.
  • Environmentally friendly-because the new edm oils are synthetic they are much easier to dispose of and have less impact on the environment.
