Air contaminated by oil mist and/or oil smoke passes into the bottom part of the filter unit where the filtration begins. The big, heavy particles are unable to follow the air that is flowing upwards. These oil droplets fall down and are collected in the bottom section and pumped out of the filter unit. The oil can then be returned back into the machine, to an oil collection barrel or to a central cleaning for re-circulation. The remaining pollution passes through the first Absolent filter cassette where oil particles are captured and then drained downwards, away from the cassette. This is what we call the “Catch and Release” principle. This is, of course happening while the machine is operating at full speed. The filter unit is designed for 24/7 operation so there is no need for downtime to drain or clean the cassettes which allows you to fully focus on your manufacturing. Depending on what filter unit you have the air is sometimes passed on through yet another filter cassettes where most of the remaining particles are filtered away. The Absolent filtration process always ends with a HEPA filter class H13, which ensures that the air is 99,97% free from harmful particles larger or equal to 0.3 microns.
An Absolent filter unit contains several filter cassettes. The filter cassettes consist of carefully put together filter materials, always mixed and matched to suit the customer’s needs. That is what makes our products so special. Just like a bike and a truck are both vehicles, but far from the same, we don’t have just one filter unit to suit all needs. Instead we have one filter unit to suits each process. Depending on how heavily polluted the air is
