Oil mist filtration

Oil Mist Filtration

Providing environmental solutions for your workplace 24/7

Oil mist almost always results in oily premises, equipment and products. Modern metalworking machinery is often controlled by sensitive electronics and production is lowered by unplanned disruptions – caused by contaminated circuit boards. Handling equipment and pieces of products coated in a thin film of oil is not acceptable working practice and definitely not production-friendly. Removing oil mist is therefore essential for workplace to grant safety and cleanliness. 

Oil mist affects the health of machine operators, disrupts production and settles everywhere in the area, resulting slippery floors and work surfaces. Almost all machining operations create oil mist to some extent. Oil mist is the aerosol that is formed when oil is used in coolant/lubricant during the machining of metal and some plastic components. Vaporising from swarf-container is also an issue. 

It is well known that prolonged and repeated exposure to oil products can be harmful to health, which means that good ventilation must be ensured under all working conditions. Emulsions normally contain 90-95% water and the remaining is soluble. The oil mist consists of aerosols from oil or oil/water emulsion. Mineral oil-based metalworking fluids are known as neat cutting oils or straight oils. Emulsions normally contain a number of undisclosed additives. 

Rock solid solutions for high-efficiency air filtration

Nederman Filtac solutions for oil mist filtration are designed for continuous operations in demanding airflow applications. Our unique FibreDrain™ technology ensures superior separation performance and long filter media life, thus minimizing your overall costs and ensuring total peace of mind. A wide range of filters is available, covering the entire spectrum from wet to medium wet and semi dry (MQL) and dry applications. 

Nederman Filtac oil mist filters feature a unique, specially treated fibre surface that allows the collected droplets to coalesce, grow in fibre intersections and finally drain by gravity out of the filter medium. This technology, called FibreDrain™ ensures superior efficiency even under the most challenging conditions in continuous operations.

The filters don’t absorb or get clogged by the oil. Instead, thanks to FibreDrain™, the air is thoroughly cleaned and a maximum of coolant can be retrieved and reused.
