COOLANT AND OILMIST EXTRACTION SYSTEMS
Coolant mist, oil mist, and oil smoke from machining are hazardous and can be potentially carcinogenic. Multi-stage filtration is required to remove progressively finer mists and swarf; with heavy duty final filtration for oil mist and smoke applications. Final stage HEPA filtration ensures almost 100% removal of contaminants.
Why is a Mist Extraction System Important?
Coolant and oil mist inhalation from machine operations can put the operator’s health at risk; and anyone else in the vicinity. Metalworking fluids can be carcinogenic. This makes it necessary to protect the workforce from these dangerous substances.
When machining parts, coolant forms a mist within the machine tool which should be captured and filtered before the machine door is opened to prevent operator exposure.
We offer a range of mist filter units with capacities ranging from 500 to 4000m3/hr, allowing us to capture mist from even the largest machine tools.
After machining, parts are removed from the machine tool; swarf and coolant must then be removed from the part prior to further processing. AirBench BD blowdown bench is a cleaning cabinet for the containment and filtration of swarf and mist from machined parts. BD is designed as a complementary unit to be colocated with each machine tool.
Finally finished parts may require polishing and sanding; these are typical AirBench dust extraction applications.
- For coolant mist within machine tools, consider our OMF range.
- For mist and swarf removal from machined parts, consider our BD units.
- For sanding and finishing, consider our FN or FPK ranges, with ‘A’ type filters for aluminium parts or ‘C’ type filters for steel.
