Oil Mist Air Cleaner

In the metal cutting industry, there are lubricant, coolant, and many other cutting liquids which are necessary components for machine tool users to prepare when they are conducting a machining task, as we know that cutting metal would naturally leads to many frictions, chips, and heat issues.

Therefore, those liquids and metal particles always spread over into the air in the working area, causing great contamination to workers in the manufacturing plant and that is a serious occupational safety hazard. Accordingly, how to deal with those liquid and metal chips as well as all those particles becomes a serious topic since the 1980s in the market in the North America. Aside from this, there are also many other contaminations in the machine tool factory that cause health issues more than the spreading liquid and metal chips do, such as gas, oils, waste air emissions by the engines and starters, and so on and so forth.

Those emissions together would cause severe chronicle occupational injuries to onsite operators that will last permanent which is not so ideal to everyone.

Types of Oil Mist Air Cleaner

In the metal cutting industry, there are lubricant, coolant, and many other cutting liquids which are necessary components for machine tool users to prepare when they are conducting a machining task, as we know that cutting metal would naturally leads to many frictions, chips, and heat issues. Therefore, those liquids and metal particles always spread over into the air in the working area, causing great contamination to workers in the manufacturing plant and that is a serious occupational safety hazard. Accordingly, how to deal with those liquid and metal chips as well as all those particles becomes a serious topic since the 1980s in the market in north America.

Contamination issues

Aside from this, there are also many other contaminations in the machine tool factory that cause health issues more than the spreading liquid and metal chips do, such as gas, oils, waste air emissions by the engines and starters, and so on and so forth. Those emissions together would cause severe chronicle occupational injuries to onsite operators that will last permanent which is not so ideal to every one.

Collector of oils

So, it began in the late 1990s, and the oil-mist collectors are under development thanks to the invention of new motor powers. With better inlet force, oil mists are now efficiently inhaled into the filter which is driven by the new motor power source. With this invention, the contaminated air is drawn into the inlet below the first stage filter where the majority of the oil particles are trapped. When the stage one filter reaches a state of saturation, the oil droplets will coalesce and drain down into the sump located below the filter the collected oil substances.

Procedures

Such procedure is automatically pumped away for re-use air passes through a second stage filter, where finer mist and smoke particles are filtered out and coalesced the third stage is a non-wicking final filter, which captures the remaining smallest particulate down to 0.30 microns. The clean air is then discharged from the top of the collector into the facility. And it is the air cleaning, or say, the filtration. Most industrial air filtration systems and industrial oil mist collector solutions can help protect factory employees and equipment investment, and can clean up the shop area and take stress off of users’ overall system. If all those metal and oil particles are attached to the manufacturing facility, with time passes, people using them and that equipment are all severely contaminated and rust will happen, leading to malfunction in many aspects.

Market-oriented

Since in the manufacturing or metalworking industry, the existence of oil mist is so unavoidable, because when fluids used to cool or lubricate metalworking tasks, it disperses oil mist, and even possibly smokes, into the air immediately after coming into contact with any fast-rotating tools. All the mist and smoke have varying types of risk factors, but exposure should be reduced as much as possible. As a result, the oil mist collectors normally use a loft fiberglass filtration medium to collect H2O or petroleum-based machining coolants.

Vertical phase

With this idea, the industrial air filtration unit’s vertical design with three stage filtration helps drain off excess coolant and keeps the filters cleaner longer and effectively filters out the hazardous smaller size mist created by high-pressure high flow machining centers nowadays. In addition, the industrial oil-mist air filtration systems can give customers with the option of cleaning all the ambient air in the plant. Someone may as, what is oil and mist? In today’s industry, manufacturing or any type of metalworking, fluids are used to cool and lubricate any machining activity: that is, to reduce friction and eliminate wear on machinery. These fluids contain different oils or minerals and contaminants in them to protect the metal and ensure no reaction from the machining activities on the machines and equipment.

Contamination matters

When, say, these fluids come into contact with fast-moving tools, they cause oil mist, which is dispersed into the air. They can also cause smokes, as both due to the high temperatures of the metal parts during machining. Accordingly, there are regulations on the limit of exposure to oil mist nowadays, but there are many different makeup of these fluids, making it difficult to define how much exposure is too much. For that reason, and for the purpose of keeping the manufacturing site clean from smokes and mist that may damage or increase wear out rates on other machinery, industrial air filtration or ventilation system is a smart investment to make to avoid big maintenance costs.

In sum, the oil and mist cleaning for the working environment become very important for modern factories and the air pollution issue really would cause many serious negative effects to both devices and personnel health, which would eventually lead to economic loss to many people. For this reason, many factory owners nowadays are eager to install the oil mist air cleaners unto their machineries or at least inside their plants, and wish that with such equipment the overall condition would be improved.
