Controlling the Risk of Metalworking Fluids

  • 11th January 2024

With the HSE campaign on the use of metalworking fluids, it’s more important than ever to make sure your process is compliant with COSHH regulations and keep your business operating effectively.

Having the correct LEV (Local Exhaust Ventilation) in place will help protect against health risks caused from metalworking fluids- inhalation of oil mists can cause lung problems and diseases such as bronchitis, breathing difficulties and occupational asthma, and direct contact with the skin can cause irritations and dermatitis.


Metalworking fluids applied by continuous jets, spray or hand dispensary generate an oil mist that, when not properly controlled, can damage equipment and be inhaled or contact the skin.

Check and maintain your control measures with Flextraction’s wealth of expertise in safe and high-performance Local Exhaust Ventilation.

From an extraction arm system connected to a filter unit, to our oil mist recycling unit directly fixed to the machine at use, Flextraction have the vicinity to provide a full examination of your process to equip you with an LEV system fit for purpose, and further test to ensure all inhalable mist is being extracted from the operator.
