Integrated Air Systems designs, manufactures and installs oil mist extraction systems that help create healthier people, products and processes.
In many workplaces machine oil is used as the lubricant or coolant that keeps parts from wearing. Yet one of the inevitable by-products of pumps, compressors, turbines and other machines using oil is oil mist.
Oil mist can be a health hazard, reducing air quality within a workplace. It can damage the environment as it is released into the atmosphere. It can coat machinery, increasing the potential for breakdowns. And it can coat products, which can at best cause stains, and at worst can contaminate a product and make it unusable.
What’s more, oil that escapes in the form of mist reduces the amount of oil left within the cooling or lubricating system. Thousands of litres of oil can be lost from an installation over a period of a year due to oil mist emissions. The cost of replacing oil can be expensive and time consuming.
Oil mist eliminators (or oil smoke filters) extract the oil mist from the immediate vicinity of the machinery, which can benefit your staff, your products, your machinery and your business in a variety of ways.
Oil mist extraction systems eliminate up to 99.5% of oil particulates from equipment discharge. Integrated Air Systems’ oil mist extractors operate a 3 or 4 stage filtration system with replaceable elements. Oil collected by the filters can then be returned to the system, reducing oil waste and cutting operating costs.
In addition to the particulate filtration, we can also add activated carbon filters to the process to negate any odour in the air stream.
Our oil mist collectors can be used in any mechanical process in which oil mist is formed by compression, agitation or expansion of oil within the system. Our oil mist smoke filters have been used by machining centres, body makers, diesel engine manufacturers and more.
Integrated Air Systems Ltd has installed oil mist eliminators for companies such as Crown Packaging, Ball Packaging, Roeslein & Associates, Pride Conveyance, Proline Engineering and more around the world.
We can provide a fully built bespoke oil mist extraction system installation package for your factory/manufacturing plant, including an inlet arrangement constructed, within reason, to suit your particular installation requirements.
