The Cleaning Mechanisms on Organic Grinding Fluid Applied for Si3N4 Ceramic Grinding
A series of experiment were performed to test the cleaning ability of different organic emulsion for Si3N4 ceramic grinding. The experiment results showed that the grinding fluid made by short chain organic substance and alkane will induces the jam of grinding wheels. At the same time, polar organic substance with long carbon chain can suppress wheel loading phenomenon. The main reason of the jam by alkane is the nonpolar oil film surface possesses the strong attraction to abrasive dust of Si3N4, which will lead to jam in the grinding process. The polar oil film relieves the aggregation of abrasive dust in the grinding area to some extant, which is beneficial to decrease jam. By analyzing the cleaning property by some types of polar organic substances, the paper discusses the relationships of molecular structure characters to their cleaning ability.
