Filtermist to launch dedicated neat oil filter at EMO

UK based oil mist removal specialist, Filtermist, will be launching a brand new filter specifically designed for use in neat oil applications, including those involving high pressure, at EMO 2015.

The independently tested Sub-micron filter has been added to the company’s accessories range to provide a viable solution for Filtermist customers that generate a significant amount of oil mist in their manufacturing operations.

Managing Director, James Stansfield, says, “Filtermist has almost 50 years’ experience in the field of oil mist collection - issues around coping with large volumes of mist caused in neat oil applications have been high on our agenda for a while now. Modern high-pressure coolant systems atomise the neat oil into thousands of sub-micron particles, which quickly block up traditional filter cartridges.

“Combining the proven efficiency of the Filtermist centrifugal system with modern synthetic fibre technologies, we are confident that this latest product will be well-received by a wide range of end-users.”

The Sub-micron filter is created from hi-tech synthetic materials connected to a patented venturi suction system, created by a specially developed connection to the Filtermist unit’s drain tube. The system ensures that a large percentage of the oil filtered out by the paper media is drained back to the machine, thus increasing the lifetime of the filter.

The new filter is currently available to fit the S400 and S800 units in Filtermist’s compact S Series range, designed specifically for smaller ‘swiss style’ sliding head lathes. It can also be purchased as part of a cost-effective new ‘neat oil solutions’ kit that includes the oil mist collector and a Sub-micron filter.

James continues, “We are continually evaluating our product range to identify any areas where we may be able to help resolve problems that our customers are regularly faced with.”

The new filter will be available to order from 1st October and more details will be available on Filtermist’s stand at EMO (D18, Hall 9).

Please contact your local Filtermist distributor to find out more or to order the new Sub-micron filter from 1st October.
