Why would I switch to a more expensive product than I currently use?
Because we guarantee you will see an immediate return on investment. The BallMatrix filtration system is the most efficient, low maintenance filter on the market. We also offer a performance guarantee for filtration efficiency. Your current system may have a lower up-front cost, but lost production due to filter maintenance and lower filtration efficiency will add up to far more than the investment of a BallMatrix filtration system. Speak with a Milhous professional to learn more about our performance guarantee.
Will it affect the quality and/or performance of the paint?
No, we had lab-analyzed testing done on paint filtered through our system to look for loss of pigment and other qualities. Filtering through the BallMatrix has no effect on quality of paint. Speak to a Milhous professional to learn more.
Does your back flush process cause us to lose paint?
Our filtration systems can be configured with an auxiliary back flush inlet that allows you to use an alternate back flushing fluid. But even our standard system is carefully engineered to ensure that you will experience minimum paint loss during the back flush cycle. Speak to a Milhous professional to learn more about our minimal fluid loss volumes.
Is the electromagnetic field dangerous?
The BallMatrix filter will not affect the health of anyone who comes in close proximity of the filter. The following is an explanation of common misconceptions about this technology:
Electromagnetic Frequency and Cancer/Leukemia:
Some epidemiological studies have suggested that a link may exist between exposure to power-frequency electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) and certain types of cancer, primarily leukemia, and brain cancer. AC fields induce weak electric currents in conducting objects, including humans, and have been a focus for research on how EMFs could affect human health. However, the BallMatrix Filter DOES NOT utilize AC magnetic fields but instead generates a magnetic field via a DC-powered magnet and therefore does not pose a health risk due to electromagnetic radiation.
Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices (CIEDs or Pacemakers):
The overall risk of adverse events related to electromagnetic interference (EMI) in recipients of CIEDs is very low. Therefore, no special precautions are required during exposure to low magnetic fields. Environmental and industrial sources of EMI are relatively safe when the exposure time is limited and distance from the CIEDs is maximized. The risk of EMI-induced events is highest within a hospital environment where MRI, radiotherapy, and electrosurgery are routinely practiced.
