Combined Oil Mist/Oil Smoke Filter

The A5 only requires 0.4 sq. m surface area - thus it is easy to place on top or close by a turning machine, machining center, etc. Here, the A5 mounted on top of a machine tool.

A5 combined oil mist and oil smoke filter

The A5 is designed to be compact yet efficient.

The patented Absolent filter cassettes with Catch & Release and TFS-Tilted Filter System is self-draining and maintenance-free for up to five years. Total filtration efficiency is at least 99.97% for all particles.

Intelligent features include electronic display of pressure drop, operating hours and filter status, plus alarm signal for warning messages. Energy efficiency is provided via the frequency-controlled air volume control with pressure regulator and EC fan.

Absolent offers its filter unit A5, the second filter in the Aline range following the previously released A10. Like the A10, the A5 is a combined oil mist and oil smoke filter, but is adapted for smaller machine tools that are running high speeds with high coolant pressures.

A5 consists of four filter stages. Three of them are supplied with the patented Absolent Catch & Release function, which normally allows for at least one year of maintenance-free operation, even when the machine is running 24/7. The final filter stage is a HEPA H13, which helps ensure that the filtered air is free from oil particles. "At full capacity, the A5 handles over 1.5 barrels of oil every year and just a teaspoon of the oil is let out into the air," said a company spokesperson.

The A5 is equipped with an energy efficient EC fan that increases its speed to adjust the air flow when the door of the machine is opened. This way the contaminated air is kept inside the machine and the operator is protected. When the machine door closes, the fan decreases its speed. This function is called EcoDrive.

A5 is controlled and monitored by the handheld electronic device Acontrol. It continuously displays information about the pressure drop at each filter stage, running hours, fan speed and more. The settings can be altered right from the hand unit.

"The A5 has been developed with the future in mind, and with the smart, handheld Acontrol it is suited for Industry 4.0 and the modern machines of today. With the energy efficient EC-fan and built-in EcoDrive it helps reduce the carbon footprint while saving money and creating a healthy work environment," said Axel Berntsson, CEO at Absolent AB.
