Safe and reliable extraction of metallic dusts, coolants and aerosols from the machining area

Three factors are relevant for designing suitable filtration technology in the machining of metal workpieces:
- Type of machining: turning, milling, sawing, drilling, etc.
- Application of coolants: oil, emulsion, MQL
- Materials: grey cast iron and high carbon steel, light metals, non-ferrous metals, as well as alloys

The machinery area must be kept clean and it must be ensured that the contaminated air cannot escape.

Additional factors to be considered in the design:
- Coolant pressure
- Internal dimensions of the machine
- Size of the machine opening (for loading of workpiece, tool exchange)
- Harmful characteristics of materials to be separated

The suitable extraction system for any application.

A variety of solutions depend on the process and the coolant used:
Oil: AERO oil mist separator;
Coolant: ENA coolant mist separator;
MQL: TR-1 dry separator or VARIO with FLEXI-P;
Dry separation: VARIO dry separator or UNI-STAR

Another vital consideration is whether the extracted air can be recirculated back into the production area.

The capture elements can be designed or optimized individually based on a flow simulation to significantly improve the reliability of the entire system.
