CUSTOMER SELF-COMPLETED AUDIT SHEETS
The links below allow customers to audit their own coolant application with regards the machine, process, existing nozzle, etc. From this information a Cool-Grind engineer will be able to home in on the current limitations and recommend a solution. Imperial and Metric versions are available.
IN-PERSON VISIT & TOOLS USED
Telephone and email dialog between the customer and Cool-Grind engineers to identify shortcomings in the existing nozzle setup, gives limited success and may not yield the ideal solution. A more effective solution is for a Cool-Grind engineer to visit your company and make a complete audit of the grinding system.
During the visit, the existing setup will be checked for flow-rate, pressure, filter unit capacity, pump suitability, nozzle limitations. Areas for improvement will be discussed; potential nozzle designs and manifolds will be presented, with operator involvement in the final design paramount. A visit report will also be prepared documenting the audit findings.
Imperial and metric nozzle optimization charts can be downloaded from the link below. They are designed to be printed double-sided, cut, then laminated, to reduce the size. Recommended pipe diameters are also included.
Lastly, a simple Excel spreadsheet can be downloaded to optimize the nozzle aperture based on fluid type, wheelspeed and grinding power.
