We’re delighted to announce we’ll be at MACH 2018 as part of the Filtermist Group stand. Organised by the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) MACH is the UK’s premier event for engineering-based manufacturing technologies.
We design and build a range of dust filters to meet the needs of all aspects of the metal production and manufacturing industries – and all our filters come with ATEX options, meaning volatile products can be handled safely.
Dustcheck Director of Sales Pete Dawson comments, “Dust can cause all manner of problems in the workplace and depending on the product being handled, can cause some significant health hazards for operators, COPD being one of them. Sometimes, the high value of the material being processed means that there can be a need to reclaim the filtered product. As well as protecting workers and dust reclamation – reducing housekeeping and preventing costly breakdowns can also be a consideration.
“2018 is a major milestone for Dustcheck as it celebrates its 40th anniversary in manufacturing and supplying effective dust control for manufacturers of all sizes, and we’re looking forward to meeting MACH visitors to discuss their dust control needs.”
The Filtermist Group will be showcasing the wide range of products and services available on Stand H17-430 at MACH 2018.
Filtermist’s own brand of oil mist filters are well-known amongst UK manufacturers, but perhaps less well-known are the company’s additional capabilities, as Managing Director James Stansfield, explains, “At the last MACH show we focused on highlighting our ability to offer a full turn-key service for centralised extraction systems for a range of contaminants including smoke, fume and dust.
“We’ve taken huge strides since then, mainly by acquiring other companies, and we are now in a position to offer comprehensive, effective removal for almost any type of airborne contaminant. This includes solvents, odours, VOCs – basically anything that pollutes workshop air.”
Whilst Filtermist has exhibited at MACH for many years, 2018 will be the first time Multi Fan Systems and Dustcheck will have taken part in this particular show. “Having Dustcheck and Multi Fan on board means we are able to target a wide range of new markets, but MACH is very much focused on Filtermist’s core market – engineering and manufacturing firms that use machine tools,”continues James. “Both companies offer a range of products and services to this sector and people that ‘know’ Filtermist may be surprised to find out exactly what we now offer.
“We’re looking forward to showing customers how we can help them make sure their people are protected from a wide range of hazardous airborne substances.”
Whilst the 2018 stand is designed to highlight Filtermist’s wide-ranging capabilities, the ambitious company won’t be throwing the baby out with the bath-water, as Stuart Plimmer, Filtermist Director of Sales, testifies, “The UK oil mist filtration market is incredibly important for Filtermist. We recorded another record-breaking year in terms of sales last year and we’re confident that this trend will continue.”
