ECM Cutting Fluids and “Chemical Chip” Disposal 640011
Discussed are the requirements and disposal of the cutting solutions in electrochemical machining (ECM), and the economics of dissolving, complexing, and separating the chemical chips in addition to their disposal. Two extreme examples are discussed in detail: gun drilling long 0.050 in. holes at 1.2 amp, and cavity sinking at 5000 amp to give proper perspective to the wide variations in problems.
Due to current capacity constraints, printed versions of our publications - including standards, technical papers, EDGE Reports, scholarly journal articles, books, and paint chips - may experience shipping delays of up to four to six weeks. We apologize for any inconvenience.
