Development of Electric Rust Preventive Machining Method – Optimization of Water Recycle System
In production site, machining fluid (cutting oil, grinding fluid) is used. It contains several chemicals that are oil, surface active agent, and extreme pressure agent, anti rust agent and so on. Waste fluid disposal which is incineration etc. is necessary and arise huge cost and environmental load. In addition, workers health hazard is concerned for several chemicals while machining. In this investigation, new water machining method system (electric rust preventive machining method system) that uses only water as machining fluid for solving of conventional machining fluid problems is developed. In particularly, this paper mentions optimization of used machining water recycle on purification rate and refined water flow quantity in developed water recycle system. Therefore, high speed adjustment test liquid equipment is developed for stable experimental condition for evaluation. Test liquid turbidity is random for sludge particle and simple filter decreases this fluctuation. However, water recycle system is aimed for constant refined output despite fluctuation of input dirty water, and it is achieved. The optimized refined water flow quantity is 13.3 L/min at 1.0 MPa from viewpoint of purification on iron, turbidity, colour, conductivity and flow rate and purification load for reverse osmosis membrane.
