Filtermist’s UK manufactured centrifugal oil mist collectors will be on show at the AMB metalworking exhibition again in September following a four-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
Filtermist GmbH will be exhibiting on the Absolent Air Care Group stand (Hall 8, stand 8C76) alongside sister companies Absolent GmbH and the most recent Group acquisition, Canadian company Quatro Air Technologies Inc. A KSV 45/ 2W swarf and coolant vacuum from Group brand Kerstar will also be on show at Stuttgart.
Filtermist will be reminding the German market why its centrifugal oil mist collectors are so popular worldwide and showcasing a number of product upgrades at AMB, including its high efficiency afterfilter offering. Designed to meet increasing clean air regulations across Europe, and constructed from premium HEPA grade paper, Filtermist’s upgraded secondary filter provides efficiency up to 99.95% when combined with Filtermist’s globally renowned centrifugal separation process. The robust construction of Filtermist units means they effectively remove the majority of the particulate matter, with the afterfilter providing a final ‘polishing’ filtration stage to capture any remaining particles.
“A large proportion of Filtermist’s global unit sales, including 100% of those in Italy, UK, USA & Mexico, include an afterfilter” comments Filtermist’s CEO, James Stansfield. “As more and more people worldwide are aware of the importance of clean air, especially since the pandemic, it makes sense to now offer this as a standard option on all models. Not only that, we can now offer a filter able to reach the high efficiency levels associated with HEPA filters, to ensure customers benefit from the cleanest air possible whilst still maintaining a cost-effective price."
Filtermist will also be focussing on the introduction of a new mounting option which is being developed to provide customers with even more flexibility. Filtermist’s compact units can already be mounted in a wide variety of ways including direct mounting to machine tools, on floor stands, machine mounted brackets, wall brackets or low-level stands.
This new ‘side spigot’ option will allow customers to mount the Filtermist at a more accessible height which will make it easier to maintain the unit. It is designed to provide Machine Tool Manufactures and their customers with a standardised connection – helping to simplify efficient oil mist extraction from any machine. The design will also help to prevent oil returning back to the machine tool when the filter is not in use and means customers can choose from a range of integral pre-filters which best suit their specific requirements.
The 2022 show will be the first time the Group has exhibited on one stand, and it will be the first AMB since Filtermist International established Filtermist GmbH - its dedicated subsidiary for the German market.
