Telford based industrial air extraction and filtration specialist Filtermist will be showcasing the wide range of products and services available through its newly acquired divisions Multi Fan Systems and Dustcheck Ltd, on Stand H17-430 at MACH 2018.
Filtermists own brand of oil mist filters are well-known amongst UK manufacturers, but perhaps less well-known are the companys 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.
Weve 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 Filtermists 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.
Were 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 Filtermists wide-ranging capabilities, the ambitious company wont 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 were confident that this trend will continue.
As well as ensuring were the go-to supplier for any oil mist extraction related requirements, were also pushing our after-sales support extremely hard. Weve employed six new engineers since the last MACH and will be recruiting at least another three this year. Our skilled engineers offer responsive and reactive maintenance throughout the whole of the UK, and we also provide CoSHH compliant LEV Testing to ensure systems are extracting as intended.
Multi Fan Systems

The company, which was established in 2001, prides itself on developing long-term relationships with clients by adding value wherever possible.
Multi Fan Director of Sales Kevin Hood, elaborates, We work on an ongoing basis with lots of our clients. They come to us with an initial specific requirement and then once weve shown what we are capable of and they realise the breadth of services we offer, they will then ask us to assist with other industrial air projects.
Dustcheck designs and builds a range of dust filters to meet the needs of all aspects of the metal production and manufacturing industries and all 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 were looking forward to meeting MACH visitors to discuss their dust control needs.
