Introducing S Fusion – the dedicated high-pressure neat oil mist collector from Filtermist
‘S Fusion’ successfully removes submicron particles generated in neat oil applications by combining a specially developed synthetic self-draining media filter with Filtermist’s proven centrifugal technology - offering an effective alternative to other products in the high-pressure coolant market.
Modern high-pressure coolant systems atomise neat oil into thousands of submicron particles, which bypass less efficient extraction systems or quickly block up traditional filter cartridges.
While other solutions that have come to market have predominantly been large, expensive units with high maintenance requirements, S Fusion is compact, cost-effective and low maintenance.
Mounted directly onto the machine tool, S Fusion does not take up valuable floor space, and lower initial outlay and running costs mean it offers manufacturers an efficient alternative to other available products.
The new ‘Fusion’ filter is made from specialised synthetic materials connected to a patented Venturi suction system, created by a specially developed connection to the Filtermist unit’s drain tube. The system enables filtered oil to be returned to the machine tool – increasing the filter lifetime and reducing running costs.
Extensive independent tests on a Star SR20R sliding head lathe showed that the airflow using Filtermist’s S Fusion system was only reduced by 14% after 4000 hours of continuous use – meaning on average, using an S Fusion on such an application would last for nearly two years when used for one shift, five days a week, and almost a year when used continuously during a double-shift.
The new Fusion filter is currently available to fit the S400 and S800 units in Filtermist’s compact S Series range, designed specifically for smaller ‘swiss style’ sliding head lathes, as well as older equivalent models. It can also be purchased as part of a cost-effective new ‘neat oil solutions’ kit that includes an S Series oil mist collector and a Fusion filter.
