A coolant is a fluid which flows through or around a device to prevent it’s overheating, transferring the heat produced by the device to other devices that use or dissipate it.

An ideal coolant has high thermal capacity, low viscosity, is low-cost, non-toxic, and chemically inert, neither causing nor promoting corrosion of the cooling system

Coolants are used to lubricate metal workpieces when they are being machined, ground, milled, etc.  Coolants reduce the heat and friction between the cutting tool and the workpiece, and help prevent burning and smoking.  Coolants also helps improve the quality of the workpiece by continuously removing the fines, chips, and swarfs from the tool being used and the surface of the workpiece.
