Products: CNC Machine Tool Coolant Mist Collector
Mist Collector | Oil Mist Collector | Mist Eliminator | Filtra-Systems
The First Stage Centrifugal Separator uses Filtra-Systems patented "At The Machine" technology. This mist collection system uses centrifugal separation to remove oil mist from air. Droplets are then gravity-drained back into the machine tool, decreasing coolant losses (and reducing the cost of make-up coolant). Unlike other centrifugal oil mist collectors, there are no moving parts at this stage, eliminating the excess maintenance typically required with these systems.
This mist eliminator's second stage separator removes the remaining mist particulate. It consists of a combination metal screen and polypropylene mesh, and is located in the mist collector housing. The final stage of filtration is a 95% DOP filter, which is 95% efficient at 0.3 micron. Filtra-Systems Gen II Mist Collectors are typically used in applications where the maximum particulate discharge is 0.5 mg/m3.
While partnering with our customers, we have developed a System Air Velocity Grid, which allows us to select the optimal efficiency point for all mist collectors, and allows us to properly balance systems that contain multiple machines.
Individual and central systems available
Mist collection systems are available in a wide variety of sizes, and are used with both straight oil and water soluble coolants. Individual oil mist collectors sized from 250 - 2000 CFM can be used on a single CNC machine, or central mist collection systems (4000 - 30,000 CFM) are available for use on multiple machines. Standard ductwork designs are available with the mist collection system. Capture boxes are also available, to prevent chips form entering the ductwork and plugging the separators.
When coolants and oils are sprayed onto parts during metal cutting, honing, and grinding processes, mist is released into the air. This oil mist can cause health problems. Respiratory issues can be caused by the inhalation of oil mists, and long term exposure can also cause skin disease. The current OSHA standard for mineral oil in air is a maximum of 5 mg/m3. Maintenance problems can occur as this mist accumulates on walls, floors, and machines. Filtra-Systems Gen II Mist Collectors are mounted to the cutting machine, and prevent oil mists from entering the workplace air.
