Bulten, situated in Sweden is a manufacturing facility. They use cold forming machines to manufacture fasteners, like screws, bolts, valves, etc. Bulten uses metalworking fluids to cool down the products themselves, and to ensure that the machinery and tools do not get rusty. During this metalworking process oil mist arises. These cold forming processes take place in closed and half open dedicated machine centres. Effective capturing, filtration and removal of oil mist is a must to protect the staff’s health, create a safe work environment and extend the lifespan of Bulten’s machinery and tools.
Bulten was already using filtration units. Each machine centre used to have its own filtration unit. However, those needed to be replaced by a new system solution to support five cold forming machines altogether.
