Engineered to overcome the shortfalls of other designs
Why Multi-Stage? Separation is done best in progressive stages. When compared to a 2-stage collector, the first filter efficiency must be high to protect the final filter. The potential of the first stage filter plugging is high. Alternatively, if the first filter efficiency is low, the final filter tends to plug.
Why Depth Loading Filters? The air travels through a depth or bed of filter media up to 1 inch thick. The risk of plugging is low, yet efficiency is high. In a pleated face loading filter, separation is on the surface of a very thin layer of filter media, resulting to the pores plugging very quickly in oil mist eliminators.
Why Cross Flow Design? An oil mist separator provides optimum separation and oil drainage. In up-flow, the oil must drip directly into the air flow and the filter below.
1st to 4th stages:
The 1st stage: Innovative mechanical elements separate 90 – 95% of the mist and solids. The fluid drains quickly, reducing evaporation and odors. No other product is this effective and uses no consumables.
The 2nd stage: The agglomerator filter is a unique depth oil mist filter, layers of stainless steel wire mesh weaved with oil attracting fibres. It is high efficiency as the air travels through a bed of coarse and fine fibres at low velocity. Channels between each layer provide exceptional fluid drainage of the oil mist separator. The media is very durable, lasting 10 – 15 years on most oil mist separator applications. Can be power washed.
The 3rd stage: Fibre bed filters have a high surface area, the technology used today by premium mist collectors. High efficiency, excellent drainage, long life. Coolant or oil filters has a typical life of 1 – 3 years.
Final 4th stage: HEPA filter captures sub-micron mist, smoke, and bacteria. Efficiency reaches the standard of 95% at 0.3 micron, with the option of 99.9% at 0.3 microns. Our HEPA filters are made exclusively for oil mist with heavy duty micro-glass media in the oil mist separator. No competitor product holds as much oil or lasts as long. The typical life of our oil mist separator is 2 – 4 years.
Mist collection has never been more affordable!
