Oil Mist Collectors

ScandMist air cleaners remove oil mist, emulsion mist and smoke from industrial process environments

ScandMist Oil Mist Collectors

Best-In-Class for Filtration Performance

Best-In-Class for Filtration Performance

ScandMist air cleaners remove oil mist, emulsion mist, and smoke from industrial process environments.

Energy Efficiency

ScandMist collectors work like magic! The oil mist and smoke disappear and you won’t have to touch units for at least one year, we guarantee it!
The concept behind ScandMist ensures superior performance, the industry’s best 2 to 5-year filter life, and surgical-grade clean air.

Cost Effectiveness

The exhaust air from ScandMist units is so clean it can be returned directly to the work environment. You no longer have to heat and expel air outside, resulting in a remarkable impact on heating costs.

Off-the-shelf-solutions are easy to install and have an extraction capacity of up to 6,000 m3/h for oil mist applications and 4,000 m3/h for oil smoke.

We also offer high capacity systems for air flows from 8,000 m3/h to over 100,000 m3/h.

ScandMist collector models are specifically designed to effectively eliminate fire risks, workplace injuries, and health hazards.

The Problem

Industrial processes that combine lubricant with high-speed machine tools generate air pollution. The exact make-up of this pollution will vary significantly depending on the process, but is likely to consist of a complex mix of toxic contaminants – including oil, water, additives, metal slivers, bacteria and more.

The Answer

ScandMist industrial air cleaners offer metalworking professionals a unique advantage to eliminating oil smoke, oil mist, and emulsion mists to establish safe working conditions.

By utilizing a specialized three-stage coalescing filtration process, ScandMist units remove fumes, emissions and other harmful by-products at the source. Surgical-grade air is returned directly to the plant and exceeds international health and safety standards for exposure limits to metalworking fluids.

Multiple layers of pleated media collect oil or coolant allowing it to drain by gravity to the base of the collector.
Instead of absorbing oil, the filter media coalesces the droplets until they are substantial enough to be collecter or drained back to the machine tool sump.

Scrubbed air is passed through a second coalescer where the process is repeated. Stage 2 utilizes higher filtration efficiency and captures the smaller particles that were not caught in stage one.
After stage 2, the air is between 95-98% free from oil mist.

ScandMist employs an H13 HEPA filter that provides 99.95 % efficiency at 0.3 μm resulting in a standard far more superior than the surrounding ambient air.
With a HEPA filter, sub-micron particles such as trace oil, smoke, bacteria, pollen, and spores, are trapped.

ScandMist uses a three-stage filtration process to progressively clean air flow. Coalescing stages one and two remove 95% of emulsion and 98.5% of neat oil @ 0.4 μm, and the final HEPA filter cleans air so that it can be safely returned into the work environment.
This unique approach prolongs filter life, reduces energy consumption and allows the captured coolant to be recycled.

Cutting Edge Technology

Nothing Escapes

Aeroex oil mist filtration systems are designed to overcome many of the shortfalls of other technologies and designs.

We have developed unique high-efficiency separation elements with long life cycles.

The Best Separation Technology

Multi-Stage progressive separation

Separate majority of fluid without filters

Quickly drain fluid to reduce evaporation & odors

Remove mist, smoke and bacteria

Cleaned air must approach zero emissions,

< 0.050 mg/m3

Top quality oil mist eliminator design

Low maintenance

Low life cycle cost

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 fibers. It is high efficiency as the air travels through a bed of coarse and fine fibers 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. Optional On-Line Cleaning system. Oil mist filters can be power washed.

The 2nd and 3rd stage: The oil mist filter process relies on the depth of fiber bed filters that capture small mist particles. 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!
