Portable, oil mist extraction unit launches at Southern Manufacturing

Shropshire based oil mist extraction manufacturer, Filtermist International will be introducing its latest product development to the UK market at Southern Manufacturing 2013.

CSX with Filtermist unit_tmb Filtermist will be exhibiting on stand Q49 where it will be showcasing its new portable oil mist extraction system, the CSX, as well as its latest range of small centrifugal oil mist extractors – the ‘S’ Series. Filtermist will also be showing products from parent company, Absolent AB.

The CSX from Filtermist is a low level combined stand that includes an integral cyclone separator, making it ideal for heavy duty applications such as wet grinding. The system draws the air containing the coolant and grinding dust into the low level stand, where it can be easily removed – the pre-filtered air then passes through the extraction unit as usual, increasing the efficiency of the operation.

Whilst ideally suited to grinding, the CSX has also been developed for use in a number of other operations including machining brass and aluminium, which often produce high quantities of small metal chips that can block less robust filter systems.

The new stand has been developed to enable ongoing servicing to be carried out at ground level – removing the need to use ladders, hoists or platforms to maintain the equipment. Routine servicing can be carried out without the need to comply with Health and Safety Working at Heights regulations.

Its compact footprint makes it ideal for manufacturing facilities where space is an issue and the integral separator in the CSX also increases the service intervals by removing large amounts of oil and debris before it enters the Filtermist unit.

The company’s latest innovation is designed to fit any of the current Filtermist FX units, from FX5002 to FX7002. Four lockable castors mean the system can be manoeuvred into position quickly and easily – eliminating the need for any additional stands or brackets.

The CSX is available to order now – for more details go to www.filtermist.co.uk or visit Filtermist and Absolent on stand Q49 at Southern Manufacturing 2013.
