Oil Mist Extraction / Smoke Extraction
Horizon are able to offer a wide selection of solutions for the efficient collection/filtration
of oil mist/oil smoke.
Machine tools today operate at higher cutting speeds
with the resultant increase in air pollution. Ideally all such pollution should
be collected at source with suitably sized hoods/canopies. Many machine tools
today are fully enclosed allowing capture to be straightforward simply by extracting
from the machine enclosure itself.
Horizon electrostatic versions of the
SMOG-EATER air cleaning range are ideally suitable for the efficient filtration
of the oil mist/oil smoke. The filter elements being manufactured throughout of
aluminium are of the permanent life design, additionally as oil mist collects,
droplets drain down into the integral sump of the SMOG-EATER promoting virtually
a self-cleaning affect. In instances where an electrostatic filter is not suitable,
mechanical filter versions of the SMOG-EATER range are available. In applications
where there is a high moisture content, moisture eliminator panels fitted prior
to the electrostatic filters are included.
The SE.8 SMOG-EATER is suitable
for single machine tools, in some cases two machine tools depending on size. The
larger SE.10 is suitable for two/three machine tools. Larger SMOG-EATER units
are available to group together any number of machine tools into a central plant.
Mobile units are available and units are manufactured specifically for combinations
of oil mist/oil smoke together with grinding dust i.e. the Horizon CE-M series.
efficiency of the SMOG-EATER electrostatic precipitator is up to 98/99% on particles
as small as 0.01 microns in particle size.
In instances where it is not
possible to collect the oil mist/oil smoke at source, a range of free hanging
units are available to provide a general clean up of the workshop atmosphere.
The free hanging units are normally suspended from the roof steelwork but can
also be bracketed from walls, stanchions, and steelwork pedestals from floor level.
The SE.22 SMOG-EATER is ideal for the average sized factory, the SE.11
for the smaller factory, particularly large areas are best served by the
larger models SE.44 and SE.44.SS. All units are provided with an indicating
light to show when cleaning is required
