Oil mist separator – Extraction systems for vapours
Oil mist separator are a must in order to ensure the extraction of oil mist from machine tools. With AOF filters we offer a whole series of extraction systems for effective extraction and filtration. The separator can filter emulsion mist, oil mist, smoke and odours. Oil mist filters can be installed on almost all lathes, milling machines and machining centres. Thus you can offer a healthy working environment for you and your employees. Heat and odours are effectively filtered and the emulsion separated from the exhaust air can be reused.
The filters of the oil mist separator are equipped with multi-stage filtration. The elements are cleanable and reusable. Harmful emissions, dust and aerosols are removed from the air at almost 100%.
Health hazards Oil mist and emulsion mist
In many machining operations, emulsions or oil are used for cooling as well as for lubrication. Rotating spindles and tools and the use of internal cooling systems, often at high pressure, produce a very fine oil or emulsion mist in the machining area of the machine. However, these can have harmful effects if exposed for long periods. To minimize health risks to your employees, air filters are used to prevent oil mist (oil mist filter).
Furthermore, these vapours are released into the ambient air every time the operator door is opened and closed. The solids now settle in the entire production area. Thus, the floors in the production area become greasy, machines become very dirty. Cleaning the floors of your production area must be carried out more often. The danger of slipping is increased by the lubricating film on the floors. Filters of for example cooling units get dirty faster and you have to change them more often. This increases the operating costs of your machines and the downtime due to maintenance work increases.
Due to the high efficiency of AOF filters (99.97%) you can nip these problems in the bud. This results in significant savings in maintenance and operating costs.
