EUR 24031 - Optimisation of rolling lubricants for improved operation of cold rolling mills (Optilub), Final report


The ultimate goal of the project has been to propose methods for improved operation of cold rolling mills by optimised use of cold rolling lubricants. The optimisation shall cover as well the economical, the ecological and the technical operation of the mill. This shall be achieved by developing methods for recovery and recycling of the oil from used rolling emulsions, by developing reliable function tests for evaluation of the suitability (especially lubricity) of new or reconditioned rolling oils and by developing fast analytical methods for the monitoring of the working rolling oil emulsion. The work carried out is presented here in a concise manner in accordance with the work packages :
