Coolant contamination in a manufacturing plantRegister Today!
- by Goodrich Jun 4, '08Has anyone had to deal with contaminated coolant in a manufacturing area? We had a break out of dermatitis only to discover that our coolant/oil mixtures were the problem.
We're improving and using a good IH to monitor but I am looking at preventive issues.

- Oct 1, '08 by GoodrichThank you for responding. We did enforce the PPE while the bacteria counts were high, now our operators are not experiencing a problem
