Royal Products’ new Filtermist Ultra is a portable solution for oil mist and smoke that combines Filtermist with cyclonic technology to remove additional pollutants. The system is top-mounted on a mobile cart with securely locking casters. Its efficient design delivers a small footprint that eliminates the need for additional stands or brackets.
“Filtermist Ultra fits conveniently behind the chip conveyor on most machines,” says Tom Sheridan, vice president, Marketing, Royal Products. “It is ideal for retrofitting an existing production line or incorporating into a new one. And Filtermist Ultra works efficiently for nearly every application, including: turning, milling, grinding, and cast-iron machining.”
The system was designed to simplify maintenance and lower manufacturing costs. The internal cyclone particulate removal improves particle separation, so clean air can be exhausted back to the factory floor, lowering the expense of heating and cooling the facility. Filtermist Ultra can operate continuously, because it self-drains back to the machine tool coolant sump. This process also reduces coolant costs by recycling it, rather than venting it to the atmosphere.
Filtermist Ultra exceeds current and proposed OSHA and NIOSH safety regulations, making it a good investment for the future. Removing oil mist reduces the risk of accidents caused by slippery residue. Inhaling oil mist is potentially dangerous to the lungs and larynx. The pollution may be harmful to skin as well. Oil mist deposits also create a fire hazard.
By preventing oily residues, Filtermist Ultra reduces the time and cost of cleaning exposed surfaces. It also eliminates build-up that can interfere with equipment.
Filtermist Ultra is driven by Royal Products FX-1200, enabling it to handle a wide range of machine tool types and sizes. It’s ideal for machines with an internal volume greater than 60ft3. The unit measures 18" x 20" and includes 20ft of 6" diameter ducting.
An all-inclusive system, it can be ordered with one SKU. That includes the model FX-1200 Filtermist unit, mobile cart, integral cyclone, oil return hose, ducting, 6" diameter flange adapter, and two 6" diameter ducting clamps. Other available products include a starter box kit with an optional low- or high-voltage motor starter, NEMA 12 box, input and output cables, and a turn-lock connector. An optional after-filter is available for collecting dry smoke and very fine mist particles.
