Exhibiting at MACH for the first time, Nederman (Stand H17-482) is a leading supplier and developer of environmental technology solutions for the manufacturing sector. The company will introduce a selection from its extensive portfolio of oil mist filtration, dust and fume extraction, swarf collection and recycling innovations that will help show visitors clean up their machine shops while being compliant to HSE directives, reducing costs and increasing productivity.
One machine that will be on the stand is the Filtac OMF2000 series of extraction units. Regarded by the company as the most efficient oil mist filtration range for the machine tool industry, the new Nederman Filtac Series is based around its 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 micron 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 FibreDrain technology.
With six models in the OMF Series of oil mist filters, the modular range offers an airflow from 1,000 m3/h to 6,000 m3/h with an inlet diameter that extends from 150 mm to 400 mm 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.
