SUCTION OF SHAVINGS AND EXHAUSTED OILS
Engineering industries produce a huge amount of waste including shavings and exhausted oils, dangerous residues that can damage the health of workers.
For example, FLR oils (lubricants and refrigerants) are cancerous and have a negative effect on health after inhalation or contact, especially in case of no personal protective equipment.
Companies which use machines like lathes, millers, drill and boring machines are exposed to these kind of problems. In case of procedures like oil refining or addition of additives to oil base, the risk is even more bigger.
One of the most important prevention measures is the use of a proper vacuum cleaner. Elsea’s range includes some models specifically designed for the suction of exhausted oils and shavings, in order to have benefits both for the health of workers and for the efficiency of production processes.
Suction of exhausted oil and shavings: the advantages
The use of proper vacuum cleaners for the suction of shavings is indicated for companies that manage operations like trimming, milling, carving, cutting, drawing, winding, blanking and drilling, in order to have the following benefits:
-Reducing the risks for the health of workers
-Saving lubrificant oil that can be filtered and reused thanks to the shavings-oil separation kit
-Improving cleanliness and maintenance of the machine
-Reducing time maintenance
-Saving cleaning costs on work areas and workstations
-Easy to handle vacuum cleaners and space saving
Separating metal chips from oils is one of the most important advantages of vacuum cleaners. After its suction, the oil can be used again causing a remarkable cost saving.
Furthermore, the machines with these features are powerful to the point that they can work continuously, increasing the productivity of the company.
The materials used to produce every single component of Elsea's vacuum cleaners are strong and completely resistant to the action of aggressive and corrosive oils.
ELSEA manufactures machines like MAXIMUS and ANTARES, specifically designed for the suction of metal swarfs and exhausted oils, guaranteeing the advantages described above and representing an efficient solution to protect working environments.
