Features and Benefits The Handte Oil Expert features premium collection efficiency under the most challenging conditions.

  • PROGRESSIVE FILTRATION DESIGN- The progressive design of ascending filter classes provides the highest filtration efficiency available in the industry. This includes the coarse separator mesh for high contamination, the standard CoaPack diffusion filter as a preliminary filter, a fine filter and the optional downstream final stage filter. This design makes it possible to configure the system for simple applications or for highly complex requirements such as clean air recirculation. This is especially true for ultra-fine mists and fumes generated in the course of high-performance machining.
  • MODULAR DESIGN FOR FLEXIBLE CONFIGURATION- The compact, modular design of the Handte Oil Expert provides for easy, efficient adaptation to specific requirements and installation situations. It is available in four standardized basic modules with different air capacities, which can be combined in a large central system. State-of-the-art technology enables flexible adjustment for system conversions or expansion as production requirements increase.
  • INNOVATIVE FILTER MEDIA- The unique structure of the standard CoaPack filter material combines premium separation performance with self-cleaning features via optimum drainage of the separated cooling lubricant. The ensures extremely long filter life of the optional HEPA final filter.
  • EASY FILTER CHANGE FOR SIMPLE, CLEAN MAINTENANCE- The operation of the Handte Oil Expert is practically maintenance free. When infrequent filter changes are needed, the change-out is clean, easy and requires no tools. The closed filter cassettes can be removed without being exposed to the oil coated filter materials.

Innovative System Design

Cascade collector design with ascending filter classes allows filter combination matching for the specific machining process.

  • FAN - Integrated or top-mount fans provide reliable, constant extraction power to meet the application requirements. With integrated fans, the compact noise insulation is enclosed in the housing. The units are delivered ready for plug-and-play without any additional assembly required at the installation.
  • FLUID COLLECTOR - Due to the self-regeneration design of the filter elements, the separated cooling lubricant is discharged from the filter media downwards into the integrated fluid collector. Through the circulation pump station or a siphon, the cooling lubricant can be fed to a facility for treatment, re-use or disposal.
  • FILTER CASSETTE WITH MEDIA SEPARATORS FOR MAXIMUM FILTER AREA - The CoaPack filter element provides maximum filter area within a compact design. This construction ensures a uniform flow, optimum use of diffusion and coalescence, which is a relevant separation mechanism for ultra-fine mists. The small load acting on the filter surface reduces the energy consumption and significantly increases the service life of the filter element.
  • IDEAL DRAINAGE PERFORMANCE FOR OPTIMUM FILTER REGENERATION - The premium filtration effectiveness of the Handte Oil Expert is due to the ideal balance between separation performance and regeneration of the separated cooling lubricant from the filter media. This is achieved by using drainage-friendly materials together with special drainage support mats, protective screens, and spacers.
  • CLEAN MAINTENANCE, EASY FILTER CHANGE - Thanks to its functional design, the Handte Oil Expert is practically maintenance-free. Quick-acting clamps ensure that changes of the filter cartridges are easy and require no tools, ensuring minimum down time. Filter cartridges are accessed from the outside for easy change-out. A transport carriage is available as an accessory, providing for drip-free removal of the filter cartridges – a perfect complement for our service concept.



Basic Modules

Top Element Modules

  2. Integrated fan- High-grade fan of compact design, with integrated noise insulation.
  3. Top mount fan - For use in connection with a downstream silencer.

HEPA Final Filter content_oil-expert-modules

  1. Final filter stage - Available as an option for particulates less than 1 micron, such as smoke, and to recirculate the air.

Main Filter Stage Module

  1. Main filter stage For CoaPack diffusion filter cartridges and optional use of the coarse filter stage for high contamination or clean air recirculation.

Bottom Element Modules

  1. Fluid collector for installation on platforms - Downward cooling lubricant discharge through a siphon or by gravity.
  2. Fluid collector with recirculation pump station - Use if discharge by gravity is not feasible, or for feeding into the cooling lubricant recirculation supply for the machine tools. Integrated pumps available in two sizes.
  3. Fluid collector for floor installation - Discharge of the cooling lubricant through a siphon and by gravity.
  4. Compact dirty air transition for connection to circular pipes.
