AQUEST CORPORATION recently provided two (2) coolant mist filtration / collection units for a customer’s material cutting laboratory. The AEROEX mist collectors were pole-mounted and designed to provide three-stages of filtration; the first stage consists of a mechanical baffled separation element, the second stage is an agglomeration weave-filter, and the third stage is a high-efficient (i.e. 99.97% @ 0.3 micron) HEPA after-filter. This superior level of HEPAgrade filtration was absolutely necessary given the sensitive, state-of-the-art equipment used within the laboratory. Aquest provided the customer design, equipment and installation services, and a custom ductwork arrangement to allow for rapid isolation of various process components.
