Filtermist focuses on full capability at forthcoming UK shows

Leading industrial air filtration specialist Filtermist International Ltd will be showcasing its wide-ranging expertise at two very different shows taking place at the NEC later this year.

Filtermist will be exhibiting on Stand K7 at the Clean Air Technology Expo taking place on the 11th and 12th September, and will return to the Birmingham venue at the end of October for Advanced Engineering (30th-31st) where it will be occupying stand L116.

Part of the Contamination Expo Series - Europe’s ‘leading event for Contamination and Environmental professionals’, the Clean Air Technology Expo offers an ideal opportunity for Filtermist to raise awareness of its wide-ranging products and services to visitors from a diverse range of industries.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Filtermist is well-known in the UK for the oil mist filters it manufactures in Telford which are used to clean air contaminated with oil mist on machine tools used in metalworking applications. A series of recent acquisitions has resulted in Filtermist significantly widening its service offering to include effective extraction for airborne dust, fume, smoke and VOCs, as well as oil mist.

Director of Group UK Sales, Andy Hives, comments, “Historically Filtermist and the companies it now owns, have only exhibited at niche industrial trade shows targeted at the industries they are most active in. For Filtermist this includes MACH and Southern Manufacturing, whilst for DCS Ltd, Ecogate Ltd and Gallito Ltd, the main opportunity was always the W show which focusses on woodworking.

“We now have such wide-ranging cross-industry expertise that we felt the time was right to take part in a broader show which focusses on ‘Clean Air’ rather than a specific industrial sector. All of our products and services are designed to ensure the air in industrial workplaces is clean and safe to breathe. Whether that’s food processing plants, pharmaceutical laboratories, automotive machine shops, shop-fitting workshops – the list is almost endless, but the legal and moral requirements are the same. Employers have a duty of care to protect their employees from exposure to potentially hazardous airborne particles.

“Whatever the pollution control requirement is, we can help.”

Jan Berntsson, Chief Technology Officer at Filtermist’s parent company Absolent Group, will be delivering a short presentation entitled ‘For People | For Planet | For Life - eradicating PM2.5 from industrial workplaces’ at the September show. Jan says, “Industrial emissions are a key contributing factor in climate change and occupational diseases, but there are a number of control measures businesses can take to ensure the air in their workplaces is clean and safe to breathe.

“This seminar explores some of the filtration technologies that can be used to capture airborne particulate at source – protecting people, reducing harm to the planet and ensuring a better quality of life for communities worldwide.”

The October show is aimed more at Filtermist’s traditional target market, but also offers an opportunity to raise awareness of its capability with engineering customers outside of its core metalworking sectors as well as with existing customers that may not be up to speed with the firm’s wider service offering.

Filtermist owns a number of product brands including Dustcheck dust filters (including wet collectors formerly manufactured by Carter Environmental Engineers’ air services division), Gallito dry filter and water wash spray booths, and industrial drying and curing ovens, FastClip solid ducting, Ecogate energy saving technology and XS Automation control panels. The company is also the UK distributor for sister firm Absolent AB.

A dedicated Systems division provides a full turnkey service that includes site audits, system design, project management, equipment specification, installation and commissioning, whilst the company’s aftersales departments provide approved spares, routine and reactive maintenance, air monitoring, and CoSHH compliant LEV Testing.
