Disposing hazardous grinding swarf or filter cake can be difficult and expensive. In addition, due to its high surface area, swarf composed of some reactive metals can be highly flammable. Caution should be taken to avoid ignition sources when handling or storing swarf in loose form, especially swarf of pure magnesium, magnesium alloy, pure titanium, titanium alloy, iron, and non-stainless steel. Swarf stored in piles or bins may also spontaneously combust, especially if the swarf is coated with cutting oil. All important reasons to find a solution to remove as much oil from the swarf as possible.
