According to the UK-based exhibitors, modern machining processes have seen machine tool manufacturers increase their speeds and feeds to improve efficiencies. This also means that the surrounding technology has also had to adapt. The introduction of high-pressure coolant, often using neat oil, can result in a high-density mist containing large volumes of submicron particulate that either blocks or passes through many traditional oil mist filters. Designed specifically for smaller 'Swiss-style' sliding head lathes, the new oil mist collector combines a high-tech synthetic self-draining media filter with the company's established centrifugal technology. This development is said to offer a cost-effective alternative to other products available in the high-pressure coolant market.
Safe removal of the smallest oil mist particles
Filtermist will be showing how its special S Fusion oil mist collector can help users meet requirements for clean oil extraction even in high-pressure cooling.
