Micronfilter USA’s Microil series of turbine-style mist collectors are designed for use on machine tools using water-based or whole oil-based coolants. The range consists of two models with different turbine blades and motors to provide evacuation capacity from 353 to 1,765 ft²/min.

The turbine causes the air to enter the collector housing at a high tangential speed. The turbine impeller is dynamically balanced to prevent vibration. The air then passes to the second filtration stage, which consists of a replaceable, coalescing-type pre-filter and a large, pleated cellulose filter cartridge. The combination of dynamic elimination and static filtration ensures 98 percent removal, according to the company.

    Systems designed to put out fires inside machine tools can provide a level of protection that external systems such as overhead sprinklers cannot. They cost a small percentage of the investment represented by today’s CNC machines and certainly far less than repairing major damage caused by a fire.
