OIL MIST EXTRACTION

Exposure to oil mist can cause a number of health issues including respiratory diseases such as extrinsic allergic alveolitis. If left in the atmosphere, oil mist also poses a slip and fire risk and can damage sensitive electrical equipment.

Fellow Absolent Group Company, Filtermist, has specialised in effective oil mist extraction since 1969 and is trusted by some of the world's leading manufacturers to effectively remove oil and coolant mist from the air in their workshops.

Oil mist filters are designed to collect and filter air which is contaminated with oil and coolant mist at source. Our independence enables us to utilise standard off the shelf products, or provide bespoke systems with airflows up to 500,000 m3/h.

We supply oil mist extraction equipment which falls into two main types - filters designed to suit water-soluble based coolants (used in applications such as machining, grinding, turning and milling) and units for oil smoke generated from neat oil applications (used in processes such as cold heading, heat treatment and forging operations).

Our team has installed effective oil mist extraction systems for clients including the Jaguar Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Centre, AVL and Triumph.
