Ceiling-Suspended CNC Mist Collectors: Aluminum Ducting Connection

A series of Model #SS-450-MIST Sentry Air Mist Collectors, suspended from the ceiling and ducted to individual CNC machines, provides effective mist collection and vapor control in a recent machine shop application.

This configuration of Sentry Air units suspended from the ceiling, as shown above,  provides maximum flexibility for future operations should CNC machines be changed out or moved.

The Sentry Air units feature convenient access to the filtration chamber so that filter replacement is quick and easy.  In this application, mist collectors and CNC machines share a power outlet so that no energy is wasted when a CNC machine is not in operation. Unlike a centralized installation serving multiple machines, only one CNC machine would be without mist collection during mist filter maintenance activities.

Sentry Air mist collectors in multiple sizes

Our mist collector line provides air volume capabilities that range from 100 to 950 CFM (cubic feet per minute).

In addition to the suspended installation shown here, our mist collectors can be mounted directly onto the enclosure of a CNC machine or placed on an adjustable height stand adjacent to the machine.

Cleanable filters

Washable mist pre-filters collect mist vapor and can conveniently drain it back into the CNC machinery where, depending upon application, it may be reused.

Mist pre-filters are typically combined with particle-trapping filters such as HEPA [up to 99.97% efficient on particles 0.3 microns and larger] and ASHRAE [95% efficient on particles 0.5 microns and larger]; both are typical filter options for our mist collecting systems.
