A Harry Miller Corp Christmas

‘Twas The Day Before Christmas…

A Harry Miller Corp Christmas

Harry’s Merry Christmas

‘Twas the day before Christmas and all through the plant,
Not a creature was stirring, not even an ant
The barrels were stacked by the back door with care,
In hopes that a trucker would soon arrive there.

Upstairs in the office, computers were humming
And people were waiting for orders incoming
The factory workers were going through their toils
Mixing various additives in tanks full of oils

Steph, Ella & John tested beakers and vials
Preparing new formulas for planned field trials
While in the back office, Bruce looked at the sales
And issued commands via phone and emails

“On Thomas, on Becca, on Lisa and Nick,
Tyler, Tony and Mel, send in new orders quick!
Make sure all the products meet our rigid specs
Mei will look at the batches and make thorough checks

We’ll send out coolants and oils to stop rust
Along with cleaners to remove metal dust
Way lubes and stamping lubes used to draw metal
We’ll use every drop from each mixing kettle

Let’s finish December upon a high note,
Ship tankers & drums and every last tote!
So to all HMC, I wish you good cheer
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas to you and yours from all of us at Harry Miller Corp

Business Partners Meet After 15 Years

Harry Miller Corp President, Bruce Entwisle, and Angela Allen have been working together since 2002.  

On November 2nd, 2017 — 15 years after beginning their working relationship — they met for the first time, face-to-face.

“It was great to finally meet the people I talk to every week,” said Allen. “We have a long-term remote working relationship with several clients, but none for quite as many years as Harry Miller Corp. I am thankful that I’ve had the opportunity to work with the fine individuals at Harry Miller Corp for such a long time. They feel like family.”

“After a great working relationship over 15 years, it was fantastic to finally put a face to the name,” said Entwistle. “I’ve seen pictures before, but it’s not the same.”

Angela and Steve Knight own Cool Jazz Web Design Studio. They work with Harry Miller Corp leadership and staff to develop, maintain and update the company’s website and digital presence on the web. 

“It was a real pleasure to meet the Harry Miller team at their Philadelphia headquarters,” said Knight. “A special thank you to president Bruce Entwisle and Vice-President Nick Ariano for the personal tour of their facilities.”

Micro-Emulsion Coolants

What is a Micro-Emulsion Coolant?

Micro-Emulsion CoolantsWhat is a Micro-Emulsion?

Micro-emulsions are clear, thermodynamically stable, isotropic mixtures of oil, water and surfacant (which lowers the surface tension between two liquids or a liquid and a solid). Most of the particles in the micro-emulsion are between 10 and 50 nanometers in diameter.

The term was coined in 1943 by two Cambridge University chemistry professors. The microemulsion systems are also called solubilized oil, transparent emulsions or micellar solutions.

Micro-emulsions are usually the result of:

  • Oil dispursed in water (globular)
  • Water dispursed in oil (globular)
  • Biocontinuous (interconnected)

These Micro-emulsion mixtures may also contain cosurfactants (which make surfacants more effective). Cosurfactants increase the oil solubility of microemulsions. Cosurfactants can also change the temperature range or the salinity range of microemulsion formations, to improve their use in certain applications.

Micro-emulsion Coolants

Micro-emulsions can provide the best of both worlds (synthetic coolant and soluble oil) as a coolant. They provide all the cooling properties of a synthetic plus the lubrication properties of a soluble oil. This makes them the best choice for medium to heavy duty machining operations on stainless steel.

Benefits of Micro-emulsion Coolants

In particular, micro-emulsion coolants provide:

  • Excellent cooling at the tool-workpiece interface
  • Can be used for multi-metal operations including carbon steels, yellow metal, aluminum and stainless steel
  • Can be formulated with Extreme Pressure lubrication additives
  • Superior hard water stability
  • Improved bio-resistance
  • Improved metal removal properties and chip carry out
  • Excellent tramp oil rejection
  • Able to be formulated for light, medium or heavy duty operations
  • Easier to remove soils from work piece after operation
  • Lower surface tension allows for better wetting and even films during machining
