In this episode, Dr. Neil Canter, Owner and Founder of Chemical Solutions, provides his perspective and input on the Metalworking Fluid Hot Topics course that will be offered at the 2011 STLE Annual Meeting. The course includes many modules, and we talked previously with Dr. Fred Passman on his module about microbicides. You can listen to that episode by clicking on the posting below.
Dr. Canter covers chemical additives and green chemistry in the course, and in this episode, you can hear what he has to say about the course and his reasons to attend.

Visit our website for more information on metalworking fluids, chemical additives, this education course, and the Annual Meeting. You can also read this previously published TLT article, "The Mysterious World of MWF Additives" to get some background on the topic. This month's TLT is also packed full of articles on metalworking and metalworking fluids, and it is available to everyone as a digital resource. Dr. Canter's article, "Monitoring Metalworking Fluids," is included in this month's issue. If you have questions, our website and TLT are two good places to start.
