In order to ensure optimum utilisation and protection of our wet grinders – Ultima-Tig, Ultima-Tig-Cut and Neutra – it is important to use the original grinding fluid, EP770. It is also crucial that there is sufficient grinding fluid in the machine. Without this fluid, or if the fluid level is too low in the grinding chamber, the electrode and the grinder itself will quickly get too hot.
Ordinary tap water is not a viable alternative, as this will result in corrosion of the components in the grinding chamber. Moreover, water does not have the same lubricating and cooling effect as grinding fluid – which will result in lower quality in terms of grinding. Other grinding fluids generally provide poorer protection against corrosion – and may result in both the fluid and the dust sticking to the grinding disc, thus causing it to lose its grinding capacity.
The original grinding fluid
EP770 grinding fluid is available in the following capacities
The grinding fluid contains:
- Glycol derivatives
Disposal of used grinding fluid must always be carried out in accordance with local legislation. As there are residues of grinding dust in the used fluid, information on the electrode data sheet concerning the disposal of electrode residues must be taken into account. Ask the supplier for the data sheet, if required. Disposal of clean grinding fluid should take place with other oleaginous chemicals.
In connection with TIG-welding and plasma welding, it is crucial for welding quality that the tungsten electrode is ground at exactly the right angle. Inelco grinders ensure accurate and perfect welding on every occasion. With a solid position amongst the world’s leading manufacturers of tungsten grinders, our products are renowned for their unique quality, profitability and precision. Furthermore, our products represent an operator-friendly and eco-friendly solution.
