Why Machine-Tool Mist Should Matter

There are a multitude of CNC machine tools on the market, and all of them have capabilities that would leave many an old-school machinist in total awe. Back in the 1980’s, I worked with some of the most skilled machinists that 3M had on staff. Their work was impeccable, but many parts took days or weeks to produce due to the many manual steps involved, from set-ups, tweaking, re-work, etc. Today’s high-speed CNC machines are…

MERV Rating

One common term used when discussing air filtration is the MERV rating. Take a moment to understand what MERV ratings are, and how they applied to your application. Before delving in, it helps to know that  MERV is an acronym for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, and it is a standard scale used to rate the effectiveness of air filters in terms of filtering particulate from the air. MERV Scale The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration…

Mechanisms Of Filtration

Need a brief overview of the basic five air filtration mechanisms that are used to remove particulates from the air? Then this is for you. This particular overview is tailored to mechanisms utilized on systems manufactured by Air Quality Engineering. Each air filtration mechanism, including straining, interception, diffusion, inertial impaction and electrostatic attraction, is employed to capture specific range of sizes of the particulate being filtered. The straining, interception, diffusion, and inertial impaction mechanisms rely…

Troubleshooting An Electrostatic Cell

If you know what to look for when troubleshooting an electrostatic cell it is a fairly easy process. I will go over the general troubleshooting of an electrostatic cell in this blog, and this covers all electrostatic cells we sell. If your electrostatic cell has not been cleaned for a while, it is important that the electrostatic cell is thoroughly cleaned before troubleshooting. You can find additional information on cleaning an electrostatic cell here. Notice:…

Isolation, Source, and Ambient Capture

A common question comes up very frequently, and that is “how do you determine if you should do source capture or ambient capture?” Well, the simple answer is you should do source capture; however it is not always convenient or possible to do source capture. What I am going to talk about is the pros and cons of doing isolation, source, and ambient capture. Yes, I just threw isolation capture in there. A lot of…
