Sulfur Free Coolant - Looking for a Spec?

Sulfur Free Coolant - Looking for a Spec?

Sulfur Free Coolant - Looking for a Spec?

I have been tasked with going through our shop and performing a review of all of our fluids that touch parts. We manufacture bolts for primarily oil & gas but also pick up the odd job from military and aerospace.

I have been given a sulfur-free criteria and was told that was a requirement for mil-spec jobs and aerospace as well as a good general practice for oil & gas. In looking at our forging lubricants; they are labeled as "sulfur free" but contain trace elements. I've not yet looking at our machining coolant yet (I'm following the workflow of our parts) but I suspect I'm going to find more "sulfur free" coolant there as well.

I've looked for a specification that defines what "sulfur free" means but cannot locate one. I've also tried finding a spec that requires the coolant to be sulfur free but cannot find that as well.

Does anyone know of what the definition of "sulfur free" is and where a spec is that points to that?

Research Report - What’s the State of Nonlinear Simulation?
Simulation is an increasingly valuable tool across the product design workflow, but not all simulations are equal. We set out to determine how engineers and product designers make use of specialized analyses, how they incorporate nonlinear simulation into their work and how they rate the available software.

White Paper – Data Security and Know-How Protection
Our data is constantly exposed to the danger of being intercepted or stolen as it wends its way over global data networks. Data security measures and measures for protecting intellectual property should not, however, first be implemented when data is exchanged – companies must lay the foundation for these measures within their own organization.
