How to select and use the best dry drawing lubricants to avoid dust issues

The wire drawing industry is more and more concerned about dust related issues. The reduction of dust particles is central to lowering the exposure risk of operators and explosion hazards. It also plays a fundamental role for the control of maintenance costs and downtime.

Condat will present a paper and hold a training course on dust reduction during INTERWIRE 2019 (Atlanta, May 14-16).
Thanks to its long expertise, Condat will give technical guidelines for the selection and use of the most suitable dry drawing lubricants. The objectives being to significantly reduce the amount of dust generated in the workshop, improving productivity whilst also reducing total wire drawing costs. 

Latest developments and products 
During the INTERWIRE exhibition, Condat will introduce its latest products dedicated to extra high tensile steelcord wire production. These include:
> a non-reactive surface coating booster for borax baths,
> high performance sodium soap based dry drawing lubricants, including borax free products.
These products have been developed for high speed drawing with low lubricant consumption and extended die life.

Condat will also present its new generation of lubricants for stainless steel and cold heading wire, all free from short and medium chain length chlorinated paraffins (short chain lengths are banned and medium chain lengths are subject to EPA regulations).

With a R&D laboratory of 45 people, and a large sales network of agents and distributors with high technical knowledge, CONDAT is ahead of the competition, offering the wire drawing industry the most efficient lubricant solutions that meet the latest environmental, health & safety regulations.
