6. Repeat on every machine showing signs of contamination.
7. Treat all machines in the workshop with SILVER FUNGIBAC SC for protection
There is a need to protect against and remove tramp oil build up which will spoil any fluid and make sure dilutions are maintained by adding regular new tops up of fluid
The additives deplete in the emulsion that’s why adding regular new tops up when needed balances the in use emulsion.
Do not top up machines containing contaminated fluids. This will exacerbate the problem and encourage further growth.
Remove fluid and repeat cleaning procedures 1 - 6
A refractometer will enable the person preparing the fresh fluid to maintain the correct dilution levels.
