 The Occupational Safety and Health Act requires employers to comply with hazard-specific safety and health standards as issued and enforced by either the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), or an OSHA-approved State Plan. In addition, employers must provide their employees with a workplace free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm under Section 5(a)(1), the General Duty Clause of the Act. Employers can be cited for violating the General Duty Clause if there is a recognized hazard and they do not take steps to prevent or abate the hazard.

Oil Mist  Collectors - Oil Mist Eliminators - Oil Mist Separators

Metalworking fluids (MWFs) have been clearly documented as causing severe health problems due to workers coming in contact with these metalworking fluids as contaminated toxic solvents, oil mists, coolant mists and oil containing smoke.  These industrial solutions and airborne mists and aerosols enter the body through direct skin contact or through inhalation from breathing. Millions of workers who are employed in the manufacture of automobiles, farm equipment, aircraft, heavy machinery, and other hardware are exposed to machining fluid mists and smoke on a constant basis.

Skin and airborne exposures to metalworking fluid oil smoke and coolant mist have been found to be responsible for many health conditions including skin eruptions, lung irritation, eyes, nose and throat disorders.   Health problems such as dermatitis, acne, asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, irritation of the upper respiratory tract, and a number of different cancers have been linked to exposure to indoor industrial producing mists, aerosols and fluid droplets of specific kinds of metalworking fluids (NIOSH 1998a).

There is a high correlation of the category and severity of health problems that are related to a variety of factors such as the kind of metalworking  fluid, the severity and type of contamination, and the level and time of the exposure to these machine producing oil mist and coolant mist aerosols.

The MistBuster 500 oil mist collector is the industry leading machinery fluid mist eliminator.  Polluted air is drawn through the first stage mechanical mist impingers from these industry leading mist collectors. The impingers are designed to remove the larger oil mist and coolant mist droplets / particles from going into the air.

The remaining sub-micron oil mist droplets and particles are removed in the second stage through the process of electrostatic precipitation (ESP). The ESP provides an intense electrical charge on the remaining contaminants through the ionizing field.

The collection cell, which works much like a magnet, attracts and removes the charged oil mist droplets and particles and separates them from the air stream. Clean air is then returned to the room.

What Is the Function of a Mist Collector and How Should It Be Maintained?

(Summarized from METALWORKING FLUIDS:  Safety and Health Best Practices Manual.)

A mist collector is an air cleaning device used for removing smoky oil  and coolant mist produced by metalworking fluid aerosols from an exhaust air-stream before discharge into the ambient, free - flowing air. Mist collectors have been called many different names over the past decade and have been referred to as mist collectors, oil mist collectors, coolant mist collectors, oil mist eliminators, mist separators, machine tool oil coolers, coolant mist eliminators to name a few. When people use these terms in industry they are all usually referring to the same thing.

Factors which should be considered in the design and selection of a mist collector are collector efficiency, filter life , collector maintenance, and pressure drop.
