Your health & safety vs. Cutting fluid mist

Cutting fluids have been associated with skin rashes, dermatitis, esophagitis, lung disease, and cancer. These problems result from either toxicity or bacterial or fungal contamination. Metalworking fluids often contain substances such as biocides, corrosion inhibitors, metal fines, tramp oils, and biological contaminants. Inhalation of cutting fluid aerosols may cause irritation of the throat, nose, and lungs and has been associated with chronic bronchitis, asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP), and worsening of pre-existing respiratory problems. A certain safety concern if inhaled, these problematic mists and vapors, cause slippery floors and drastically increase cleaning and maintenance costs, all the while creating an unpleasant and dangerous workplace.

High Efficiency Filtration is standard.

Efficiency rated at 98% at particle size in the 1.0 – 2.0 particle range, and near 100% efficiency at larger than 2.0 micron particle size. The MistAway includes Activated Carbon Filtration capability to removes gaseous pollutants and odors from the filtered air. The Final filter is held in place against a sealing surface that prevents contaminants from bypassing it. Filter Status Gauge is standard and constantly monitors filter restriction to indicate when filter maintenance is needed.
