Cleaner, Safer Machining Operations

In metalworking and wet machining processes the oils and coolants used will pollute the work atmosphere in the form of mist. Left unmanaged, this mist collects on floors, walls, work surfaces, and equipment, creating an unpleasant environment that is unhealthy and unsafe for workers.

Equipment can also be damaged by oil and coolant accumulation. Cardinal Air is your source for mist collection solutions for the effective management of submicronic mist contaminants.

      1. The Mechanical Element separates up to 90%
      of the oil mist and swarf.  The smooth metal surfaces quickly drains fluid
      back to the sump.

      2. The Demister Element supports the 1st stage to ensure up to
      95% of the mist and swarf are removed with washable filters.
      This is replaced by an agglomerator filter for coolant applications.

      3. The Fibre Bed mist filter is depth loading that captures small mist
      particles.  With a filter rating of MERV 15, it can be used without a HEPA
      filter on most applications. 
      Typical life 1 – 3 years.

      4. Optional –The HEPA filter captures sub-micron mist smoke and bacteria. Our standard HEPA filter is 95% @ 0.3 μm efficient. A higher efficiency filter rated 99.97% @ 0.3 μm is optional.
      Typical life 2 – 4 years
      HEPA filter is made with exclusive heavy-duty filter media, no other product holds as much or lasts as long.

      5. Optional – The Pre-Filter Box for oil and heavy mist.
      Recommended for Swiss screw machines.  Extends filter life many times.
