Certain components found in metalworking fluid formulations are known to be prone to selective depletion via adsorption onto the surfaces of particulate generated during metal cutting operations. The characteristics of adsorption for a multi-component synthetic metalworking fluid are investigated in order to determine the affect that machining particulate contamination has on component depletion from this fluid. Experimental measurements indicate that the corrosion inhibiting component of the formulation is especially prone to depletion via the adsorption mechanism. A Langmuir isotherm/mass balance based predictive model is developed to determine the effect of chip adsorption on depletion from industrial metalworking fluid systems and is experimentally verified. An industrial case study is applied to further investigate selective component depletion via the adsorption mechanism.
