Oil & emulsion mist separators

Cooling lubricants such as emulsions and oils are often used for machining work. If these make contact with a rotating spindle or rotating workpiece, a fine mist is created. The mist can enter the atmosphere through the various openings in a tool machine. This is damaging not only to the environment, but also to your employees and machines. The mist is respirable and alveolar, and can cause conditions such as skin irritations and retinal inflammation, thereby damaging the health of your employees. The mist can clog up machines severely, in particular electrical components and measuring instruments, there fore impairs their function. As the mist also settles on the floor, the working environment becomes unsafe and maintenance costs are high. By means of controlled ventilation of the machining volume of a tool machine using our extraction systems, the contamination can be separated out and the treated air released into the atmosphere. Our extraction systems protect your employees, increase the availability and service life of your machines, protect your building, and,last but not least, safeguard the environment.

Dust & smoke separators

Where there is planing, shavings fall, where there is sanding, dust is created, and where welding or pouring occurs, smoke. Dust and smoke separators ensure that certain processes are made possible in the first place. The wide variety of different separation technologies provides the right solution for every application. The systems can be supplemented with pre-separators, post-filter systems, explosion relief and suppression or extinguishing systems.

Gas & air cleaning

Air can also be contaminated with non solid materials. Dirty air can smell unpleasant and even irritate the airways, nose, skin and eyes if it contains caustic gases. Gas and air cleaning systems capture scent molecules and wash out gases. Gas and air cleaning systems can either treat room air in general or they can be connected directly to the source. Either way, they create a pleasant and safe working environment for your employees and protect your environment.

Efficient Control of Aerosols

According to the latest scientific report from the World Health Organization on the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, there is overwhelming evidence that aerosols play an important, if not decisive, role in the spread of the SARSCoV-2 virus. In general, quite apart from the ubiquitous discussion about the SARS-CoV-2 virus, air filters are the method of choice for the efficient removal of viruses due to their ability to control aerosol levels in the air. This has been researched for years and has been proven by numerous studies.

The Conclusion: The control or containment of aerosols by means of efficient filtration is synonymous with the containment of the viral load in the air, which consequently leads to a reduced risk of COVID19 infections.

This paper is intended to contribute to a better understanding of aerosols and their properties, as well as providing explanations that show, that the right filter-choice is crucial for reducing the risk of infection due to virus-laden air.

Characteristics of Aerosols

Generally, an aerosol is defined as a suspension system of solid or liquid particles in a gas. An aerosol includes both the particles and the suspending gas, which is usually air. Aerosols are typically classified according to their physical form and how they were generated. Fume, mist, smoke, smog, diesel soot or fog are typical examples. The diameter of aerosol particles is in the order of magnitude between 0,01 μm and 10 μm. Particle size is often determined by the process that generated the particle. For example, combustion particles usually start out in the 0,01-0,05 μm size range, but are likely to combine with each other (agglomerate) to form larger particles. Individual aerosol particles are therefore not visible to the naked eye. A quantity of aerosol particles in air is only visible, depending on the particle size, from concentrations of 10.000 to 100.000 particles per cubic centimeter. All accumulations of aerosols in the air to which fungi, bacteria, pollen or viruses adhere are called bioaerosols.

Aerosols, to which a virus such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus is bound, must therefore correctly be called bioaerosols.

How exactly the corona virus is spread – whether primarily via a droplet infection or rather via aerosols in the air we breathe, is currently intensively researched. When a corona patient coughs, speaks, or sneezes, a jet of droplets and aerosols of different sizes is created, which then penetrates the room air. All of these different sized droplets and aerosols potentially contain viruses, because viruses tend to stick to larger particles.

FILTRACONs AVAC-Systems are totally self-contained stand-alone Recirculation Units for areas where additional, extra high filtration performance is needed against any type of contamination including viruses. FILTRACONs AVAC-Systems combine state-of-the-art HEPA filtration with UV germicidal irradiation to create total clean air solutions fulfilling all relevant guidelines. There are two expansion stages available.

FILTRACONs AVAC-PS2000 – best choice for public spaces

Thanks to the insulated double-wall constructions leading to whisper-quiet operation, it is ideally suitable for indoor use in for example offices, schools, health care facilities or hotel lobbies, just to name a few.

FILTRACONs AVAC-FW4000 – best choice for factory workshops

This is the heavy duty version of the PS 2000 which provides up to double air flow (4'000 m³/h). There is an exhaust box with integrated jet nozzles mounted on top of the AVAC-FW 4000. This enhances the throwing distance of the clean air.

Features & Benefits

  • Suitable for indoor use
  • Combines HEPA filters and UV germicidal irradiation
