What can happen if a grinding stone with a lower-rated RPM than the grinder is used?

To determine

The impact of using a grinding stone with lower rated RPM than the grinder.


After successful welding of components and other items, it is desired to impart a smooth and clean finish to the fabricated articles.

This is done usually by chipping, grinding or cleaning the welds and even application of paints.

Grinding is an machining process that is generally used to impart good surface finishes to the object or workpiece.

This process is carried out by means of a grinding wheel that acts as a cutter and helps in removal of the unwanted metal particles on the surface of the workpiece.

The grinding wheel or stone that is used for this operation must be having a rated RPM equal to or greater than the RPM or speed of the grinder on which it gets mounted.

In case a grinding stone being used has a rated RPM lower than that the RPM of the grinder, the grinding stone flies away with an enormous force...
