Hazardous oil mist

Industrial processes generate oil mist and oil smoke. The particles are as small as virus and bacteria, which makes it hazardous for human beings to inhale.

The oil mist particles are approximately 1/20th the size of a human hair, and the oil smoke even smaller.

Scientific research has shown that the smaller the particle the further it goes into the human body – and the more hazardous it is. Therefore, correct filtration and sufficient extraction is important.

In the USA NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) has concluded that approx. 1.2 mio. workers within the metal industry are exposed to unhealthy aerosols.

Research shows that various problems with the respiratory system comes from this exposure. NOISH points out that work-related Asthma is one of the most common work-related suffering.

Based on this knowledge it is important that machines in factories all over the World are connected to extraction and filtration systems, which are efficient and continuously maintained.

We offer knowledge and products for these applications.
