How to choose the most suitable oil mist extraction system for your company
Having an oil mist extraction system in place is essential to ensure a clean and safe working environment. The presence of oil mist can have severe consequences on the health of employees and the efficiency of industrial plants.
Therefore, it is crucial to select an oil mist extraction system that meets the specific needs of your company. Let's explore some key factors to consider when choosing the most effective oil mist extraction system for your business.
1. Assess oil mists sources
The first step in selecting the appropriate extraction system is to identify the sources of oil mist in your company. These sources may include processing operations that generate mist during the use of cutting oils, cooling fluids, lubricants, or emulsifiers. Determining the main sources of oil mist will help you focus on specific solutions to address these issues.
2. Analyze the workplace environment
Each workplace has unique characteristics that influence the choice of an extraction system. Consider the size of the space, the layout of the plant, and the presence of other activities that may affect the dispersion of oil mist. Additionally, evaluate any regulatory restrictions and safety requirements specific to your industry.
3. Evaluate available aspiration technologies
There are several technologies for oil mist aspiration to choose from. Among the common options are coalescing filters, centrifugal filters, and centralized aspiration systems. Each technology has its own advantages and may be more suitable for specific situations. ● Centrifugal Filters (CleanMist): Compact and easily installable on machine tools. By harnessing centrifugal force, they effectively separate oil mist particles from the air, ensuring optimal cleanliness. This solution is particularly suitable for situations where on-machine installation is required. ● Centralized Filters (Mist Compact): If your company has a centralized system where oil mist comes from multiple sources, modular filters are the ideal choice. These filters use a coalescing effect to separate emulsified oil particles from the air, ensuring effective purification. Their modularity allows for custom configuration based on the specific needs of your plant. ● Coalescing Filter for Heavy Mechanical Operations (MCOS): For more demanding mechanical operations that use whole oil and generate smoke, this filter utilizes the coalescing principle to effectively separate oil and smoke particles from the air. It is a reliable solution even in particularly harsh working conditions, ensuring a cleaner and safer working environment.
