Our one at work uses soluble coolant. The valve that controls the rate of fall should be adjustable. The pump should raise the arm by a bit each stroke, which it then countered by the arm falling a slightly greater amount.
They'll probably work on neat oil rather than suds, but you'd have to adjust the valves for whatever you use. Don't run plain water, it'll wear the pump out.
