When the health and safety of your employees is at risk thanks to oil mist hazards, it’s important to turn to an expert in oil mist extraction. A company with decades of experience. A company like Filtermist International.
Filtermist has more than 40 years experience providing oil mist extraction systems around the world. The company has worked alongside government research institutes and global machine manufacturers to develop the most well-known and well-used oil mist extraction system. Filtermist units are in operation on tens of thousands of applications — from high-precision CNC machining centres to traditional open grinders.
The Filtermist S Series and FX Series units feature a perforated drum with specially designed vanes that rotate at high speed. Oil mist is drawn into the units and impacts on its vanes at high velocity. Special drum pads assist the coalescing process and filter out stray solid particles. Centrifugal force pushes oil to the unit’s outer case where it drains back to the machine for re-use or collection, and clean air is returned to the workshop through the top of the unit.
The result is improved health; improved safety; reduced energy and heating costs by recycling clean air back into the factory; and reduced maintenance costs because no expensive media filters need to be replaced.
Filtermist is an industry standard from aerospace to medical and automotive to food processing. Units are available in mild steel and stainless steel with dozens of installation accessories to create turnkey solutions for almost any type of oil mist problem. With more than 150,000 units in daily use, Filtermist is backed by an extensive spares and support network, with 35 distributors covering more than 50 countries.
In Canada, Filtermist is available through Etobicoke, Ont.-based AMT Machine Tools. Contact AMT Machine Tools for more information.
