Grinding fluid
This is Castrol Honilo 710 cutting lubricant. The customer wanted to see if the centrifuge could be used to remove the swarf. We ran fast as the funnel would take it. Samples were at room temperature and shaken prior to centrifuging. UPDATE: The customer sent some photos.
Prior to starting we wanted to see what had settled out of the lubricant naturally. All samples were shaken prior to pass through the machine. Prior to starting we wanted to see what had settled out of the lubricant naturally. All samples were shaken prior to pass through the machine. We poured the samples by hand at about twice as fast as shown in this photo. The machine required two full quarts to fill the centrifuge rotor.

This is the centrifuge rotor partially disassembled. You can see the junk collected as a dark line around the outer edge. Material collected from 1 gallon. Material collected from 1 gallon.

Inside of the feed cone revealed the the material separates easily. This material collect above the discharge slots. This shows the drain path. This should be cleaned when the machine is cleaned. This material drained well and quickly. This is the machine on shutdown with the lid removed.

After this customer purchased a machine it was determined that the 1/4 inch pipe was too small to maintain the flow required of 2 or 3 gallons per minute. We decided to open up the feed to a 1/2 inch pipe. It was close be we were able to bore the id large enough in the the lid for the larger feed tube. Next we cut some o-ring grooves in a piece of stainless pipe for the new feed tube. We opted to use two o-rings. to help prevent the tube from moving and to ensure a good seal. The o-rings size is 2-017.

Next the 1 Test fit the lid before removing it from the lathe. O-rings installed.
Next the 1" to 1/2" reducer was installed. Test fit the lid before removing it from the lathe. O-rings installed.
Tube installed top side. Feed tube installed bottom side. This is the result, for more details look at Grind fluid 2.

We made the customer a custom top for their rotor that doesn't have the feed cone mounting. It was found that the feed cone caused too much back pressure at this high flow rate. By removing the holes the customer will increase their holding capacity by quite a bit.
