Machining, stamping and many other manufacturing processes in the aerospace industry generate fine oil mists that are challenging to control. Uncontrolled oil mists are hazardous for employees and can damage electronics and other equipment components. However, special methods are needed for effective control; oil mists cannot be collected using the same equipment that is used for dry dust collection.
In this presentation, we’ll address:
- Hazards of uncontrolled oil mists
- Common mistakes and misconceptions in oil mist collection
- Differences between dry dust and oil mist collection, including filter types, equipment options and maintenance requirements
- Remedy selection and design for oil mists
