Client: Bearing manufacture in the North East

Project Brief: Install a filtration system around the existing machinery to extract and filter oil mist / cutting fluid from the manufacturing process to improve air quality.

Actions: HLA installed several oil mist collection systems, the below units are multi stage filtration units with final HEPA filters, this has been installed to improve air quality within the factory from a bearing cnc process.

The system has been fitted with smooth bore clip ducting to ensure the system does not leak, as seen with spiral ducting on other oil collect installations as this can cause a slip hazard due to the droplets of oil that condense in the ducting and leak from the Pittsburgh lock (lock form).

Following the installation the client has seen a large decrease of oil mist that previously coated floors, walls and equipment as well as great reduction in atomised oil making the work space more comfortable and safer for employees.
