    Fractional Collection Efficiency 3. Operating Principle

    x = Particle size in µm
    y = Fractional retention rate in %

    Aerosol: Wiolan SH 10
    Raw gas concentration: 50 mg/m3
    Volume flow: 600 m3/h

    2 = Filter cartridge after 100 operating hours

    Oil aerosols are sucked away from the machining space of machine tools. The oil-laden air flows outward through the coalescer element from the inside. The oil attaches itself to the fibre media as it passes through the filter. Minute oil droplets "coalesce" to form larger drops. These larger droplets migrate downwards on the coalescer element due to gravity. The oil accumulates at the bottom of the housing and is returned to the cooling lubricant storage reservoir via the oil drain hose and the membrane valve. The vacuum in the filter housing causes external air to be sealed off by the membrane valve. The valve opens automatically when the oil in the drain hose reaches a height of at least 500 mm. The cleaned airflow is sucked away by means of a high-pressure fan and blown out at the top through a silencer.

    4. Application 5. Product information
    Suitable for non-water-miscible cooling lubricants (cutting oil, grinding oil, drilling oil) and oil aerosol exhausted by machine tools and also for water-miscible cooling lubricants.

    Operating limits

    If oil is used as cooling lubricant for machining processes, air usually has to be sucked away from the working area to prevent the atomized oil from dispersing. The concentrations that often occur in the cooling lubricant jet or in the machine room could result in ignition in case of tool breakage, for example. If the machining process involves flammable cooling lubricants or flammable materials, safe operation must be ensured by providing suitable fire and explosion protection devices in conformance with statutory regulations.

    LGA 600 F
    The LGA 600 FUW is a filtering separator with optional pre-separation.
    It is driven by a frequency controlled motor. A volumetric flowrate sensor supplies the actual value required to obtain a constant volume flow of 600 m3/h. If this value falls below the setpoint, an electrical signal is output at approximately 450 m3/h. These signals can be evaluated to enable suitable maintenance action to be taken.
    Installation in potentially explosive atmosphere (Zones 0, 1 and 2) is not permitted!
