Filtermist set to unveil enhancements Telford-based Filtermist International Ltd (www.filtermist.co.uk), a leading manufacturer of oil mist collectors, will be introducing new upgrades at EMO 2019 (Hall 7, Stand A62).

The company, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, will unveil its F Monitor 2 and 2+ and its FX Fusion at the show — enhancements designed to improve the effectiveness of the company’s systems and ensure that they meet the demand for faster and higher-performance filtration.

F Monitor is a system that advises machine operators when the extraction unit needs servicing, and warns them of any potential blockages.

The upgraded F Monitor 2 features Bluetooth connectivity, so an app on a smartphone or tablet enables the user to adjust the time, air flow, temperature and vibration levels to suit particular applications.

Also available is the F Monitor 2+, which includes additional functionality to measure vibration and motor temperature (via a sensor attached to the Filtermist motor).

Both models use a globally recognised ‘traffic light’ system to alert machine operators when an oil mist collector needs servicing, or if any of the filters are blocked.

When everything is working to optimum levels, the monitor displays a green light, an amber warning light comes on to indicate that the operator should arrange a service, and a red lights means that urgent inspection is required.

The F Monitor 2 and 2+ are available as stand-alone accessories, and they can be retrofitted to the complete Filtermist range.

The company will also showcase its new size FX Fusion filter, which has been designed specifically to fit onto its FX4002 and FX5002 models.

With the same functionality as the S Fusion neat oil mist collector, FX Fusion will help customers in the automotive, aerospace, medical and high-value engineering industries to solve their neat-oil high-pressure extraction requirements.

Modern machining processes have seen machine tool manufacturers increase their speeds and feeds to improve efficiencies, meaning that the surrounding technology has had to adapt.

The introduction of high-pressure coolant — often using neat oil — can result in a high-density mist containing large volumes of sub-micron particulate, which either blocks or passes through many traditional oil mist filters.

Designed for the larger FX models, FX Fusion combines a high-tech synthetic self-draining media filter with Filtermist’s proven centrifugal technology, offering a cost-effective alternative to other products in the high-pressure coolant market.

Filtermist International CEO James Stansfield said: “Filtermist has exhibited at EMO for many years, and it is always a highlight in our calendar, but this year will be different from previous shows for a number of reasons.

In addition to our anniversary celebrations, we will also be sharing a stand with Absolent AB for the first time and introducing a number of other new brands that have recently been acquired by the Absolent group.

Our expertise has always been focused on oil mist extraction, but recent developments mean that we now offer dust extraction, welding fume and smoke extraction, ducting and much more.”

The EMO stand will be used to showcase the capabilities of electrostatic filter manufacturer Bristol T&G International GmbH, as well as UK-made FastClip ducting and products manufactured by the recently acquired Montreal-based air pollution control specialist Diversitech Inc.

Be seen in all the right places!
