Filtermist oil mist eliminators can help in applications with limited space, like machine tool shops.

Space is often a valuable commodity in machine tool workshops. So when it comes to oil mist removal, Filtermist eliminators are the perfect choice. They are available with compact designs and ultra-slim mounting brackets.

Overcoming space limitations

One company that takes advantage of the space savings offered by Filtermist units is U.K.-based turning company Tenable Screw Limited. This manufacturer makes millions of components in its three facilities. Tenable Screw works with a variety of stainless steel grades and other materials. It uses Filtermist units to remove lubricant mist from a variety of machining operations. 

According to the company’s works manager, Trevor Peacock, the company has used a range of Filtermist units for many years. But its newest CNC machines required a special solution to make best use of the available space. Peacock said Filtermist was able to meet that need by redesigning the mounting brackets. The new bracket design allowed the filter units to be installed in a more convenient location, on top of the machine. 

“This has made a huge difference to us, saving space, minimizing potential health and safety issues and enabling our operators to move easily around the machine without any obstacles in the way,” he explained. 

Peacock also stated that the reliable mist removal offered by Filtermist units are an essential part of Tenable Screw’s operation. 

“In the short period before the Filtermist filter unit is fitted, you really notice how much oil mist is being produced. In fact, there are some jobs we simply couldn't run without one.”

Oil mist at this machine tool workshop has been virtually eliminated, while meeting the space requirements.
