Oil Mist Is Unbreathable
Oil based cutting fluids are often used in CNC milling, machining and metalworking. During production, these processes can produce a mist that can threaten sensitive electronic circuitry and presents serious physical risks to employees (accidents from slipping, breathing hazards).
What Are the Risks In a Workshop with Oil Mist?
Exposure to oil mist for a prolonged period of time can cause a number of health issues.
- Eye, nose and throat irritation
- Damage to the respiratory system
- Bronchial asthma
- Chronic cough
- Slip hazards (falling, dropping of tools/materials)
How Can I Protect Myself?
Mist collectors are effective at capturing and filtering harmful oil mist pollution. They can either be installed on individual machines or to a central location. Having the correct oil mist filtration equipment installed will protect your employees from unnecessary health risks. In addition to this, it will also help to protect your business from long term liability and healthcare costs related to workplace air contamination.
