Lubrication is complex and choosing the right lubricant for particular applications is becoming ever-more challenging as new formulations are developed. Getting the best performance from today’s advanced metalworking fluids (MWF) requires constant monitoring and adjustment but doing these tasks manually is not ideal.

Castrol’s SmartControl system is the new way for manufacturers to monitor and control their MWF management, automatically and in real time. 

WATCH THIS SESSION to discover how Castrol SmartControl allows manufacturers to operate efficiently, cleaner, and faster and frees operators from repetitive tasks.

It measures all the key parameters of the MWF automatically, including concentration, pH level, conductivity, temperature and volume flow. The system monitors and measures the state of lubricants and coolants in real time,  and works in conjunction with Castrol XBB fluids to optimise system stability, maximise efficiencies, and deliver the confidence that comes from having everything under control.
