Air Cleaning Systems (acs) has supplied its 1000dpv free standing electrostatic filtration system to Poole based Winton Precision Engineering to deal with excessive oil usage and oil mist engulfing the workshop from a Dugard Eagle 32 CNC Turn/Mill centre with Y-axis.

Cardiff based acs’s electrostatic filtration system has been designed for use in conjunction with sliding head lathes.

The system resolved the issue as Winton Precision’s MD, Peter Kenchington says: “The 1000dpv was fitted to eradicate the fume problem we encountered as mist would fill the workshop and create an unbearable, unhealthy working environment.”

The Dugard 32 runs all day with minimal operator intervention to produce over 900 parts per day. The 1000dpv ensures that, by keeping the machining enclosure under negative pressure using a 250W integral fan/motor assembly, there is no egress of mist into the workshop.
