Employees working with die casting processes are often exposed to high concentrations of oil fumes and mist. At the beginning of the die casting sequence, lubricant is sprayed onto the die cavities, the mechanical plunger and the die guide bars. Due to the elevated temperature of the dies, some of the die lubricant evaporates which creates a plume of mists and fumes. The air is then filled with greasy, oily, and dense smoke, which presents a convoluted situation when trying to extract and clean the contaminated air. Today’s regulations for occupational health and employee safety require effective smoke and mist removal in this facilities.
Clean Air America, Inc. has developed the most advanced and efficient oil mist and smoke filtration system available today.
Featuring a 3 stage filtration system, the Clean Air HighSmoke™ allows manufacturing facilities who do die casting, metal cutting/pressing, steel mills, etc. to clean their facilities with up to 99.995% efficiency to help protect their workers from the hazardous particles that can be produced during these processes. The machines feature both a HEPA filter and coalescing fiber bed media filters. These coalescing fiber filters allow oil particles that have been filtered to collect together until it they are heavy enough to drain off the filter particles. The Clean Air HighSmoke™ system is the only one of its kind currently made in the USA.
Clean Air America, Inc. created the new Clean Air HighSmoke™ HS-2400 for “high smoke” applications. The Clean Air HighSmoke™ HS-2400 features larger coalescing fiber bed filters with a lower permeability rating and deep fiber bed media suitable for filtration of higher concentrations of sub-micron particulate.
Clean Air HighSmoke™ HS-2400 applications include:
- Heat treating
- Cold heading
- Die casting
- High-speed grinding with oil
- Rotary transfer precision machining
- Roll mills
Clean Air America
The high-smoke model designed for applications with higher inlet concentrations up to 150 mg/m3! The HS-2400 is ideal for demanding processes such as die casting, cold heading, high-speed grinding & machining, and heavy smoke loads. This unit can be ducted to multiple machines or single machines based on airflow requirement. Application accessories include automatic pump packages, VFD, spray systems, and fire suppression packages.

The Clean Air HighSmoke™ series features a robust industrial welded cabinet complete with a positive locking cam to compress filter gaskets to eliminate bypass, oversized, specially-designed coalescing fiber bed filters designed to filter up to 150 mg/m3 of sub-micron particulate, final safety HEPA filter, differential pressure gauges for each filter stage, test ports for each filter stage, hinged access doors, inlet plenum with 1”FPT drain fitting, drain options include p-trap or automatic pump back system c/w tank, float controls, and pump w/28’ of head pressure.
The Clean Air HighSmoke™ HS-2400 can be mounted on a stand or floor mounted for use with automatic pump back system. The Clean Air HighSmoke™ HS-2400 is rated for 2,400 CFM at maximum saturated conditions. A 10HP energy efficient motor with a narrow width backward inclined high-pressure blower wheel provides 2,400CFM (at maximum saturation) with approximately 2.5”IN WG of external static pressure. A sound attenuated fan plenum reduces sound pressure levels. Inlet connections can be supplied for either side of the unit or the rear of the unit to meet installation requirements. Optional VFD package with HMI PLC can be supplied for basic energy savings or advanced system management with feedback for fan HP, amperage, voltage, filter conditions, and operational parameters that can be linked to process machine for tailoring performance to machine tool or process.
The Clean Air HighSmoke™ HS-2400 model is also a modular design and can be supplied with common inlet and outlet plenums for a larger centralized system with remote external centrifugal fan packages. The basic unit is rated for 2,400 CFM at maximum saturation and can be expanded to limitless CFM requirements to suit larger installation requirements or total plant or cell ventilation.
