Removing oil mist from the production environment creates golden opportunities for Schalins

Schalins experienced issues with oil mist not being properly extracted from the work environment and gold dust getting caught in the duct system. The impact was an unhealthy work environment with risk for allergies, and loss of profit. To achieve a healthier workplace and reduced maintenance cost, Schalin decided to install Nederman Filtac OSF 2000 filter with trap for gold dust and powder.
