Effect of different dielectric fluids on titanium alloys under eclectic discharged machining.

Dielectric fluids Powder Additives/ Compositions Alloys Effect Ref.
EDM oil B4C Ti-6Al-4V MRR increased; Ra reduced; and EWR increased. [136]
EDM oil Al,Cr,SiC, Fe γTiAl Al gave the highest MRR and lowest Ra among the additives. [137]
Pure water SiC Ti-6Al-4V MRR increased; Ra reduced. [138]
Pure water Urea CP-Ti MRR improved; EWR increased; and wear resistance of machined surface of workpiece improved due to formation of TiN thin layer. [139]
Distilled water Ti-6Al-4V Distilled water showed superior performance in comparison with kerosene in terms of improved MRR and surface finish [140]
Kerosene SiC, Al Ti-6Al-4V SiC mixed with kerosene offered the best MRR. Using either Al or SiC led to inferior surface roughness [141]
Compound dielectric fluid Water, tap water and 0.5 vol. % hydrogen peroxide TC4 MRR, EWR and Ra are all improved in comparison with kerosene and distilled water. [135]
