Dicyclohexylamine (DCHA) and methyldicyclohexylamine (MDCHA) in cooling lubricant applying Inline Dialysis

Abrasive machining of e.g., metal parts requires a cooling lubricant. Their purpose besides cooling and lubrication is to inhibit corrosion. Amines are added to the emulsion to keep the pH high. In the actual application, DCHA and MDCHA have to be analyzed besides other amine components and inorganic cations. To avoid oil contamination on the IC system, Inline Dialysis is applied. The detection is performed by direct conductivity detection.
