  • Maintain a Healthy Workplace with Oil Mist Collectors

    Many machining shops use a variety of metal working fluids, which support the creation of the metal components. During the creation process, lubricants and coolants get converted into vapors, aerosols and mist, which can be very harmful to workers who work in the facility. The inhalation of metal working fluids can lead to a number of medical conditions, which includes irritation of the eyes, ...

  • Mobile service saves $46,700 in metalworking fluid system

    The Problem: An engine manufacturer had been having trouble with tool life, filtration performance and oil misting. To remedy the problem, the central system was partially discarded and replaced on a routine basis. The systems ranged in size from 8,000 to 40,000 gallons, and, while dumping was helping the problem, fluid costs were unacceptably high. The manufacturer and their contracted CMP asked ...

  • Keep your air clean with Wet Dust Collectors

    Wet dust collectors use liquid — often but not always simple water — to capture and separate dust, mist, fumes, and other particulate matter from a stream of flowing gas — often but not always simple air. Some wet dust collectors spray liquid in a sheet across the stream of gas; others bubble the gas through ...

  • Case Note: Civil Liability Arising from the Buncefield Explosion

    THE FACTS OF THE CASE What Mr Justice Steel in this decision of the High Court described as possibly the 'largest peacetime explosion in Europe' occurred at the Buncefield Oil Storage Depot in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire on 11 December 2005 (perhaps metaphorically proving Henry Higgins wrong in his dictum that 'hurricanes hardly ever happen' in counties beginning with H). There was ...


  • Vaccu.Lan for Green

    You're building a 'green' science building, and some of your laboratories require vacuum support. How do you provide vacuum for those labs? You can't use an oil-sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps in the labs. The oil mist would contaminate the laboratory air, and the noise pollution makes the working environment unpleasant. The pump oil would quickly be contaminated by biological and chemical ...
