Close the atomizer needle valve. Then open it (1/2) to (1) turn.
Do these steps to make sure the MQL system operates correctly: Hold a small piece of paper approximately 3 inches from the atomizer. Operate the program in Step 2. A round wet pattern shows that the MQL system is adjusted correctly.
Some oils have a higher viscosity. Oils with higher viscosity flow slowly. To make the oil flow correctly, adjust the needle valve.
Note: If the oil is not flowing through, remove the needle valve and its spring to clean it off and let it run until oil starts leaking through the needle valve hole. Put back the needle valve and its spring, and close it. Then open it (1/2) to (1) turn and try again.
Do not use more than the necessary quantity of oil. The necessary quantity prevents these problems:
- Chips attach to the tool.
- Chips attach to the workpiece.
