Waste Recovery of Grinding Swarf – Failure Analysis

Since 1983 Touchsone Research Laboratory has provided fast, accurate and affordable failure analysis to a wide range of industries – from underground mines to advanced spacecraft.

Waste Recovery of Grinding Swarf

#A manufacturer was faced with an environmental problem – a large quantity of excess grinding swarf (very fine metal shavings) contaminated with heavy metals.

This posed both a potential environmental risk and expensive clean-up. In addition, the grinding swarf contained valuable alloy metals.

Touchstone evaluated the problem, and developed a process for the recovery of the valuable metal.

This substantially reduced the waste output for the manufacturer while allowing re-use of alloy bearing metal.

Touchstone has performed numerous analyses related to environmental waste, both organic and inorganic in nature.

Touchstone is commited to making the world a better place through the implementation of environmentally sound technologies.
