A long established, north east based, manufacturer of process equipment is benefiting from Camfil APC’s Handte EM Profi technology. As part of on-going investment the company purchased a WIA L600 turning center with high pressure coolant capability. During machining with the high pressure coolant, it became evident very quickly that there was a mist build up within the machining enclosure. Upon opening the door to undertake component checks mid-cycle, or at the end of the machining cycle, a visible plume of mist escaped into the factory environment. The company was aware that this presented a respiratory hazard for the operators and increased cycle times as the door to the machine remained closed until the mist had dissipated. Additionally, as the mist rises when it is warm it could impinge on the overhead crane rail and the associated electrics and, when it cooled and descended, it could be drawn into the electrical cabinets of neighbouring machines by cooling fans causing damage to computers, switchgear etc.
