Bavelloni SPA  
Capabilities: The Sedimentor 2.4P  
coolant cleaning system is an intelli-  
gent improvement for the glass fabri-  
cator’s grinding and polishing process.  
It is a completely closed coolant re-  
circulation system that receives dirty  
grinding water and through a two-step  
process, returns virtually clean water  
back to the grinding machine’s spin-  
dles. As a result, the grinding machine  
can expect to experience improved  
feed-rates, longer diamond tooling life  
as well as improved glass edge quality.  
Another benefit is the reduction in  
labor hours lost due to grinding tank  
cleaning and the disposal of contam-  
inated water with coolant. The sys-  
tem is simpler and easier to maintain  
compared to a conventional centrifuge  
while utilizing less energy.
