Choosing the right grinding wheels for a specific job is the key aspect for achieving superior grinding results. The Chris-Marine grinding wheels have been carefully selected, tested and proven for each type of metal alloy, surface finish and workload.
Today’s diesel engines are exposed to significant loads due to the high working pressures and demands of modern engines. It is therefore vital that sealing surfaces are ground very accurately to provide a tight seal to secure long term performance and the best possible service intervals.
Chris-Marine® grinding wheels are selected, tested and proven for each type of metal alloy, surface finish and workload. Choosing the right stones for a specific job is the key aspect for achieving superior grinding results.
A grinding wheel is a precision tool with thousands of cutting points. It consists of abrasive grains held in a matrix of bond and separated by pores. The most important factors defining a grinding wheel are described below.
Grade is not a measure of the hardness of the abrasive material but of the durability of the wheel. The hardness varies according to the tenacity with which the bond holds the abrasive grains together. Grade is defined by the alphabetic ranging from ”E” to ”Z”.
E = very soft grinding wheel
Z = very hard grinding wheel
