Edge Technologies’ Vortex AF series is a soluble coolant mist collection system designed for machine tools performing wet machining operations. The system is a synthesis of centrifugal separation and HEPA air filtration, achieving optimum air purification with minimum maintenance, according to the company. This system uses a three-stage process for removing water-soluble coolant mist, fog, aerosols and smoke. At Stage one, the coolant mist airstream collides with the fish-scale profile shield, coalescing into larger droplets. Next, particles greater than 2 microns are captured through wind-shear effect with the 70 degree self-draining mesh filter. At Stage two, a centrifugal impeller located in the 2nd chamber provides efficient airflow and low noise continuing the separation process. At Stage three, particles greater than 0.3 microns are captured using a E12 HEPA filter, which is said to result in 99.97 percent filtering efficiency (measured by MPPS method) and releases purified air back into the plant.
