Transor Filter USA has introduced a new line of grinding oil branded EVN. EVN’s “Environmentally Friendly” designation is because, unlike most grinding oils that are petroleum based, EVN is a vegetable based oil. EVN is completely biodegradable and it is not harmful in cases of leakage or spills.
EVN provides additional benefits over normal grinding oils. Its combination of low viscosity (5.4 cSt) coupled with a high flash point (370 degrees F) is not possible in petroleum based products. That means that EVN improves flushing, which helps grinding performance while also providing the increased safety features.
Compared to traditional grinding oils, EVN users have experienced up to 30% less evaporation along with significantly reduced misting, thus reducing maintenance making it a very cost effective investment. When EVN is used in Transor‘s One Micron filtration systems featuring automatic backflushing, its life expectancy is indefinite.

Thin web or film of metal on a casting that occurs at die partings and around air vents and movable cores. This excess metal is due to necessary working and operating clearances in a die. Flash also is the excess material squeezed out of the cavity as a compression mold closes or as pressure is applied to the cavity.
Machining operation in which material is removed from the workpiece by a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, slurry, etc. Takes various forms: surface grinding (creates flat and/or squared surfaces); cylindrical grinding (for external cylindrical and tapered shapes, fillets, undercuts, etc.); centerless grinding; chamfering; thread and form grinding; tool and cutter grinding; offhand grinding; lapping and polishing (grinding with extremely fine grits to create ultrasmooth surfaces); honing; and disc grinding.
Measure of length that is equal to one-millionth of a meter.
