Questions we hear most often about Oil Mist Collection

Q. What are the features to look for in an oil mist collector?

A. The first consideration is wet vs. dry operation. A dry oil mist collector consumes single-use filters and when they’re saturated, you replace them. Operations and disposal costs are high, and continuous. A wet oil mist collector has cleanable filters that won’t degrade over time. Also, look for an oil mist collector that allows you to re-use the oils or coolants collected, and seek out a low-pressure design (10" or less w.g.) to minimize energy use.
