A couple years ago we were having some cutting issues on our mazak spacegear 510. the tech had mentioned that he smelt paint fumes(half our shop is paint) and they can cause ballooning of the beam if it got into the air supply. This wasn't the issue at the time as our main compressor is vented outside. Currently they are installing a secondary compressor down in paint. this one wont be vented outside. I have raised my concerns but the CEO wants more info before he decided if we have to vent it outside or any special filters or air prepossessing we could use or if standard air dryer will take out the air born solvents.
anyone have any info or experience with this?
Thanks in advance
