Preventing aluminum on a bench grinder Practical Machinist

Jun 22, 2016· The explanation given to me is that aluminum gets mashed down into the wheel and then later expands under the heat of someone grinding steel. This expansion causes the wheel to crack and come apart. I've been told this several times, including by one person who unfortunately got to watch a wheel explode about 10 feet from him in a maintenance shop on a Navy ship.

Is it Safe to grind aluminum, or not?

2004. A. My experience is the bonded abrasive (grinding wheel) composition may be compromised by the heat generated by a "clogged" wheel. The heat is usually carried away from the wheel in the metal it removes, but a clogged wheel becomes a heat generator and the metal adhered to the wheel seals the heat in, therefore you could see a wheel explosion when the material is in contact with the wheel.

Dec 23, 2009· Yes, the wheels can "explode" mechanically rather than chemicallly. Aluminum gums up the wheels. Then it stops grinding because it is gummed up and you push harder to compensate which makes more heat. The expansion of the aluminum forces the grains of the wheel apart cracking the adhesive. Centrifugal force does the rest.
