Please suggest components for a water spray/vacuum system for cooling and dust collection while grinding. Answered
The grinding is being done in a tight area. A long handled grinding disc (please see picture) is being used. Only the grinding disk rotates, not the long handle.
It would be best if the water lines and vacuum lines could be attached along the handle, welded? cable ties? The system needs to be portable but electricity will be available. The smaller the components, such as water reservoir, peristaltic pump, vacuum pump, vacuum holding tank, spray nozzle, tubing, the better.
The material to be ground is heat sensitive so the water spray is needed for cooling.The water pump needs to be a peristaltic type pump so that the fluid is only in contact with the tubing. I will also need a way to connect the flexible tubing of the pump to a more rigid, perhaps metal fluid line along the handle.. Due to the small grinding surface, water flow does not need to be great, perhaps 20 ml per minute.
The dust produced from grinding can obscure the view so a vacuum source is necessary.
I welcome any suggestions on: how the system could be designed, what components I would need, where components could be purchased, how to keep costs down, etc. I greatly appreciate any guidance you can give me.
