Competitor Mist Collectors

1. your machining facility may already have mist collectors for your machining centers. But you may not realize how much mist bypasses that mist collector, here’s a simple way to find out.

2. Cut a rectangular piece of roll filter media and tape or fasten it to the clean air discharge of your current mist collector, see how dirty that filter media is after 1 week or 1 month; that’s how much oil / coolant mist and smoke bypasses your current mist collector and ends up in employee lungs, on floors, HVAC units, duct, walls, ceiling, rooftop, expensive test equipment, etc.

3. Some mist collector companies realize that their filters are not very efficient so they add a HEPA after-filter to capture the bypass, but do not provide a gauge to let you know when it’s time to change that HEPA, because you will need to replace it frequently and at considerable cost; so here’s a simple way to know when it’s time to change the HEPA. Add streamers to the discharge grill, when the streamers no longer indicate airflow your HEPA filter is plugged (saturated) and your mist collector is no long working to remove oil / coolant mist or smoke.
