Liquid to gas separation technology was invented over 100 years ago. Over the past decade, 3nine has been awarded over 100 patents on our separation technology making us worldwide leader with over 40% of all the patents globally.
Separation instead of collection
While competing technologies collect particles in a filter media (I.e. electrostatic filtration, mechanical filtration, rotating filtration) 3nine’s technology is based instead on separating fluid particles with a disc stack, allowing reuse of cutting fluids and lowering maintenance to a minimum. The GREEN LINE Series of units can separate 100% of all particles down to 1µm and 82% of particles as small as 0.75µm.
The HEPA filter (H13)
In order to capture the finer particles <1µm, 3nine uses a HEPA filter (H13) which is a highly efficient filter that captures 99.97% of the most difficult particles. With most of the particles separated in the disc stack, the life of the HEPA is quite long, averaging 12-18 months based on one shift per day.
