Highly effective filtering of oil mist
Liquid aerosols cause problems, and not just for health
Cooling lubricants are used in many work steps in metal processing. This is because heat is generated during mechanical processing, which has a negative influence on the service life of tools and machines. Cooling lubricants counteract this and at the same time ensure that the surface of the workpiece is handled more cleanly. Despite these positive aspects, cooling lubricants pose a problem in the area of work and process safety. During use, they produce very finely distributed aerosols that consist, among other things, of dust particles and in particular oily droplets that pollute the air and thus people and machines.
Air polluted by oil mist causes problems
Contaminated air creates serious problems that pose a risk to people, the environment and machinery.
Work and environmental safety
The most common problems include:
- Respiratory problems, skin and eye irritation
- Increased risk of slipping and accidents when oil settles on the floor
- Environmental problems with uncontrolled run-off of oils and emulsions
The most common problems include:
- Dirty machinery and equipment
- Electronic components become disturbed or damaged
- Ventilation system function is impaired (room air deteriorates)
- Fire and explosion hazards
The Viledon Solutions – effective and versatile
Precisely tailored concept for maximum filtration effect
In these applications, it is usual to use 3-4 stage filter system, which is specifically adapted to the general conditions on site. By using coalescing separators of various size levels, the air is effectively cleaned of oily vapors. Similarly, Viledon filters can be used in all stages downstream of a pre-separator, or as an additional safety stage downstream of electrostatic precipitators.
The Viledon solutions for the filtration of oil mist are suitable for all practical requirements likely to be encountered.
The filters work reliably for:
- centralized extraction systems with several machining centers
- decentralized extraction systems at individual machining centers
- blow-off benches
- room air extraction
- High effectiveness by field-proven Viledon filter solutions
- Longer filter life through unique nonwovens and manufacturing processes
- Reduced energy consumption and lower total costs
- Plannable and individual service offers

Filter media that is progressively structured of high-performance nonwovens, produced from non-breaking fibers ensures high durability and long useful lifetime.
Offering high operational reliability and cost-efficiency they are ideally suited for intake air prefiltration at coastal, offshore, and other high humidity locations. Here they provide optimum protection of the subsequent filter stages keeping them dry thereby extending the operational lifetime.
The technically stable and engineered design of the MaxiPleat series offers continuous reliable operation for even the most extreme conditions. With a hydrophobic coating, a patented thermal embossing process, and leak-proof casting, these filters provide dependability with cost efficiency.
Final filter stage for critical substances such as oil mist, coolants and aerosols. Also applicable as safety filters for asbestos, quartz and heavy metals.
