Why Clean Air Is Good For the Environment
In every manufacturing plant, production machines emit smoke, dust, oil mist, and other particulates in the air and environment. These particulates are not only hazardous to the environment; they are harmful to the workers in the plant. Plus, machining is required for the production of many products. Along with any high-volume machining process comes the generation of oil mist, which is battled continuously by maintenance and EHS managers in an effort to ensure plant cleanliness; reduce mist-related machine, electronics and HVAC failures; eliminate slipping and falling hazards from oil mist collecting on the floor; and most importantly, to ensure a quality breathing environment for employees.
Clean Air America provides next generation industrial air cleaning systems that create a healthy working environment. Clean Air designs and manufactures turn-key engineered solutions for a variety of applications including welding, grinding, plasma cutting, and more that are used within Technical Training facilities, vocational schools, sheet metal shops, and manufacturing plants. Clean Air America delivers the highest safety, quality, reliability, and performance products that modern air filtration applications demand.
One device from Clean Air America captures oil mist. Called the Clean Air ScandMist Oil Collector, its benefits include better air purity and lower oil costs for grinding and machining. In a factory environment, mist, smoke and harmful particles such as bacteria, are generated by metalworking machines. This mist and smoke is exhausted into the factory air, making it unsafe for workers to breathe.
Clean Air ScandMist removes practically 100% of oil from the airstream, eliminating slip hazards. Clean Air ScandMist removes oil mist from the source - negating any problems with oil mist covering factory fittings. Clean Air ScandMist removes oil mist directly from the machine and returns it to the reservoir.
Clean Air ScandMist uses a 3-stage process to clean the air for most applications where the first 2 stages are designed specifically either for emulsion or neat oil and the 3rd filter is a H13 HEPA (99.995%). With this high degree of separation and efficiency the cleaned air is then returned directly to the workshop. The outlet air from a Clean Air ScandMist unit is of a level similar to that found in sterile areas and clean rooms used for clinical applications.
