The process can also protect machine tools from damage, extend cutting tool life and improve product quality. Ideal for cast-iron and aluminum applications, the kit is available as an option on the company's chip conveyors and can also be retrofitted to existing chip conveyors. The system is suitable for cleaning water-soluble coolant and does not use media filters, eliminating filter purchase and disposal costs. | LNS America Inc. 513-528-5674 | Turbine-Style Mist Collector Filters Water-, Oil-Based Coolants 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 ft.²/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 con- sists 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, the company says. | Micronfilter USA | 512-827-3701
