MQL Separator

mql separator exhaust air

MQL separators are mechanically filtering separators used for air contaminated with dust from machining with minimum quantity lubrication (MQL). In this process, the dust is separated by a pre-filter, while the coolant lubricant is separated by a downstream coalescence filter (coalescence: merging). In this process, the droplets in the exhaust air combine in the filter medium to form larger droplets, flow downwards due to gravity, and drip off. This results in a continuous self-cleaning of the filter elements. If the air is not to be vented outside but returned to the building, a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air filter) stage (particulate filter) can be added downstream.

To protect your employees and the environment from air contaminated with dust and coolant lubricant, we offer you a MQL separator system tailored to your individual needs. From small units to large central systems, whether as a standalone solution or in combination with other processes, we are your competent partner and full-service provider for air purification.



Designs and Features

All plant components (pipework, vessels, electrical components, etc.) can be manufactured and supplied in the following materials:

  • Steel
  • Galvanized steel
  • Stainless steel (e.g., V2A)

For which applications is an MQL separator suitable?

For exhaust air from MQL machining.

What components make up the operating costs?

The operating costs of a mechanically filtering separator primarily consist of electricity costs (largely dependent on the fan’s power), maintenance costs, and replacement part costs (especially filter media).

What is the difference between an MQL separator and a dry separator?

In the dry separator, dry dust is separated. In the MQL separator, dust with minimal amounts of lubricant is separated.
