Oil mist filtration

Metalworking

Optimize production with metal chip/swarf management, coolant recycling and oil mist filtration

Metalworking using highly productive machinery with high cutting speeds requires large flows of coolant, and produces metal dust and chips. Metalworking also generates oil or coolant mist which is a health risk to employees and may cause problems with CNC machinery. Microscopic liquid drops can affect sensitive electronics in machinery, which can result in sudden operational stops. Solving these problems by using Nederman's effective oil mist filtration, material handling and coolant recycling systems open up major opportunities for reduced costs and increased revenues. 

The Nederman machining concept has been developed to provide metalworking companies with products and systems that cover their current and future needs. We are the only company in the world who has an overall picture of clean air challenges in metalworking and how to solve them. Our solutions help to achieve better working environments, reduced environmental impact and improved production efficiency.

Chip management

  • Better yield of refined metals
  • Less need for storage and handling of voluminous turnings
  • Recycling of coolants that are filtered and returned to production

Mist collection/filtration

  • Comply with indoor air quality regulations 
  • Reduce sick leave
  • Less maintenance and cleaning of electronics and controls

Coolant recycling

  • Improve productivity and product quality through effective coolant handling. Constant filtration reduces stoppages for changes. 
  • Reuse of coolants improve profitability and put less strain on the environment

Nederman solutions include systems for chip handling and processing, coolant filtration and oil/water separation. The effects are prolonged life of coolant, decreased costs for chip handling, and higher prices for scrap material. Nederman products and systems also keep machines and premises free from scraps and our oil mist collectors purify the air.

Profitable chip handling

Many companies produce more turnings than products from their incoming material. CNC lathes usually produce around  40-60 per cent of turnings, which also contain large amounts of coolant. Consequently there is a lot to be gained from effective waste chip management. Clean turnings have a higher scrap value. Centrifugation of the turnings can help to extract, filter and return more than 90 per cent of the coolant back into production. By pressing the turnings into solid briquettes, companies can achieve further financial benefits through improved smelting and simpler waste management.

Cut costs for coolants - ensure productivity

Clean coolants ensure highly effective machining with fine tolerances, while dirty coolant wears spindles, pumps and cutting tools. Coolants polluted by tramp oil, are broken down by bacteria, loose their original properties and start smelling. There are high costs involved in changing coolant, operational stoppages, removal and disposal.

Effective coolant filtration systems

Nederman’s solution for the constant filtration of coolants in full flow is the “Presto” program. The coolant is cleared of  sediment, particles and tramp oil. Nederman has solutions for coolant filtration for many machines working in groups. Investing in a coolant filtration system pays off very quickly.

Clean air in the workshop and a safe working environment

Oil mist can directly affect machine operators’ health and disrupt production. It also settles everywhere in the premises and causes floors and work surfaces to be dangerously slippery. A Nederman oil mist collector reduces the risk of work related  injuries, and results in fewer operational stoppages with a reduction in maintenance and cleaning requirements.

Clean workplaces

Cleaning a workplace or object with compressed air can damage machinery and people’s health and only moves the problem to another place. Nederman’s mobile and central vacuum and filtration systems keep objects, machinery and workplaces clean and collects turnings and dust that may have been deposited.

Keep premises free from hazardous oil and coolant mist

Nederman solutions include systems for chip handling and processing, coolant filtration and oil/water separation. The effects are prolonged life of coolant, decreased costs for chip handling, and higher prices for scrap material. Nederman products and systems also keep machines and premises free from scraps and our oil mist collectors purify the air.

Helping metal working companies all over the world

Chips and coolant can be hidden treasures for every company working in metal processing. Nederman has helped many companies to uncover these treasures by designing solutions that recover and prolong the life of coolant, and decrease the handling costs of chips while increasing its value.

We also have an extensive experience in solving air contamination problems created by oils and coolants. Our solutions cover all types of workshop machinery, from conventional machines to the latest high-speed CNC equipment. We offer highly efficient filter solutions for numerous operations,  including grinding, turning, machining, drilling and hobbing.
