Nederman to Clean-Up at MACH with New Oil Mist Filters

Exhibiting at MACH for the first time, Nederman is a world leading supplier and developer of environmental technology solutions for the manufacturing sector, which protect People, Planet and Production. Preston based Nederman will introduce a selection from their extensive portfolio of oil mist filtration, dust and fume extraction, swarf collection and re-cycling innovations that will help show visitors clean up their machine shops whilst being compliant to H&SE directives, reducing costs and increasing productivity.

One machine that will be on the Nederman stand at the Birmingham NEC from the 9th to 13th April, will be the Filtac OMF2000 series of extraction units. Regarded as the most efficient oil mist filtration range for the machine tool industry, the new Nederman Filtac Series is based around Nederman’s patent-pending FibreDrain™ technology.  Specially designed for continuous operation on turning, milling and grinding machine tools, the new OMF Series will be connected to an oil mist generating ‘test-rig’ at MACH to demonstrate how effective the OMF series is at removing and controlling airborne oil mist particles within the machine envelope.  

With high speed machining and high pressure coolant both becoming more prevalent in the metal cutting industry, oil mist and smoke from machine tools is increasingly commonplace. To eliminate the negative effect that oil mist has on employee health, productivity, the production equipment and overall business revenue, the Nederman Filtac OMF range of oil mist filters can deliver a multitude of health & safety, productivity and consumable cost benefits.

It is acknowledged that there is a fundamental difference between oil mist and smoke. Oil mist is comprised of liquid droplets generally up to 20 microns in size whereas high speed machining can generate mist drops that form a liquid smoke with droplets less than 1 micron. To effectively capture these extremely small droplets, Nederman has developed its unique, patent-pending FibreDrain™ technology.

Incorporated into the new line of Nederman Filtac OMF units, the FibreDrain™ filters make it possible to capture even the smallest submicron droplets and drain them back to the process with maintained filtration efficiency. The exceptional fluid drainage capacity of the OMF 2000 at MACH 2018 will ensure maximum coolant retrieval and reduce coolant consumption. The FibreDrain™ design also extends filter life and reduces operating costs.

With six models in the OMF Series of oil mist filters, the modular range offers an airflow from 1000m3/h to 6000m3/h with an inlet diameter that extends from 150mm to 400mm diameter. This diverse range makes the OMF series suitable for machine tools of all sizes. Available as a free-standing vertical design that sits alongside the machine tool or as a horizontal system for mounting upon the machine, the OMF has the option of two or three filter stages depending upon the chosen model. These filters are easily accessible for cleaning or replacement, which significantly reduces the maintenance requirement and machine downtime.

The first filter stage consists of a cassette with Filtac's FibreDrain technology whilst the secondary stage consists of a HEPA filter in Class H13 with an efficiency of 99.95%. The performance of these individual filters can be monitored by gauges that indicate any drop in pressure. The separated oil is collected in the bottom of the unit where it can be drained to a container, a pump box or re-circulated directly back to the machine tool.  

For the customer, the benefit of employing the Nederman Filtac OMF 2000 Series is a reduced health risk, as exposure to oil mist for a prolonged period can cause a number of respiratory and skin conditions. Additionally, workshop safety is improved as excess oil mist creates slippery surfaces that increase accident rates.
