Ambient Mist Collector

Ambient Mist Collectors, or Industrial Mist Collectors, are designed to capture and collect excess mist commonly found in machining and tooling shops. Typical applications include general shop mist collection, open CNC lathes and waterjet machines that produce ambient mist, and other applications that produce oil mist, water mist or coolant mist.

This system is commonly used in conjunction with the source capture mist collectors but can be utilized as the primary filtration unit as well. In particular, these units are ideal for situations where direct mounting is not available or feasible.

The industrial mist collector uses a five filter process that was designed to handle mist and other wet environments. This filtration process consists of four cleanable mesh pre-filters and one oil bag filter. Collected oil from the filters is drained into an oil drain plug to be repurposed.

This unit can be installed by hanging from the ceiling, mounting to a fume extractor stand, placing on a cart or table, or mounting to a wall shelf. For large areas, multiple ambient air mist collectors are recommended to increase efficiency and create an optimal airflow pattern.

How does an Ambient Mist Collector work?

- Step 1 - 4 Cleanable Mesh Pre-filters – Mist enters the system and is filtered through a set of 4 cleanable mesh pre-filters.

- Step 2 - Oil Bag Filter – Any remaining oil and fine particulates are then filtered out of the air with the oil bag filter and drained into the drain plug to allow collection of oil for repurpose.

- Step 3 - Filtered Air – Filtered Air is released back into the workspace through an adjustable four-way grate.

A popular installation method is hanging the Model 2000 from a ceiling. Alternative options include mounting to our Fume Extractor Stand, placing the unit on a cart or table, or mounting to a wall shelf. Depending on the size of your work area, you may want to consider installing more than one Model 2000 to better cleanse the air and create optimal airflow patterns.

This unit underwent stringent third-party testing and evaluation to verify that all internal components are able to withstand a moist environment.
