Air Cleaning Systems (ACS) provided Whitehill Spindle Tools with a range of air treatment units — including a dust extraction unit, electrostatic air cleaner and media filtration units — for extracting dust and coolant mist that was resulting from the manufacturing process.

Whitehill Spindle Tools — a company that manufactures tooling for the woodworking and plastics industries — purchased dust and fume extraction equipment from ACS after its managing director noticed increasing amounts of dust and coolant mist coming from its machine tools.

In order to protect shopfloor staff’s health an ACS AC1 dust extraction unit was installed on the company’s grinding machine to eradicate dust produced when polishing blades.

After moving to larger premises, the company purchased a Mazak Variaxis 500-5X. However due to hot fumes and coolant mist generated, the operator could not open the doors. To solve this issue Whitehill purchased an ACS OMF2500 free-standing a media filtration unit, which has individual enclosed filters to serve each machine.

Additionally, a grinding centre with a pump that sprayed oil onto its machining envelope left an oily film on anything nearby. An ACS 1700dpv electrostatic air cleaner was fitted to it and enabled the machine to maintain its oil levels, as well as cleaning up the work environment.

Key benefits of product application

  • The OMF2500 enabled operators to access the work envelope as soon as part had been machined.
  • A smaller OMF1000 filtration installed not long after the former could be attached to most machines and machining centres.
