Title Grinding booth for large casting
Bibliographic information Aug. 1982, Vol.43, No.8, p.587-595. Illus. 13 ref.
Abstract Design recommendations are made for a grinding booth suitable for large castings and portable hand-held grinders. Systematically studied were the air velocities within the booth as functions of the geometry of the suction ports, recirculation jets, ventilation flow rate and recirculation flow rate. The rate at which grinding particles are injected into the air from the grinding wheel is described in terms of a size distribution function and the metal removing rate.
