New MistEliminator removes oil mist in metalworking processes

17 January 2012 Plymovent upgraded the MistEliminator programme for effective capturing, filtration and removal of oil mist.

Plymovent’s knowledge, experience and state-of-the-art technology ensures optimal control of oil mist in the metalworking industry, offering clean air at work.


Oil mist or oil smoke arises when metalworking fluids are used to either cool metal workpieces or lubricate parts and tools during the operation process. As a company, you are obliged to comply with the national or local occupational health and safety standards for oil mist. Oil mist needs to be captured in order to protect your staff’s health, create a safe work environment and extend the lifespan of your machinery and tools. Therefore, Plymovent supplies the high-quality filtration system ‘MistEliminator’ to reduce the background concentration of oil mist in CNC machineries and during other metalworking processes.


The new programme includes various models of the MistEliminator, all presented in Plymovent’s new product design. Depending on the type of oil mist, you can either choose the ME-3 or ME-4 series. All filter units and filter banks are modular and can be tailored to your needs in capacity, media and efficiency. For larger capacities Plymovent has added filter banks of up to 15,000 m3/h to the programme.


The filtration method, including self-draining coalescing filter cassettes, ensures effective filtration of oil mist with low operational costs. One of the new options is the maintenance-friendly OilPump. OilPump is an automatic pump that moves re-claimed oil from the MistEliminator to a basin, for example, without operator intervention.


In case of recirculation, Plymovent offers an additional HEPA filter. Recirculation ensures that expensively heated or cooled air stays within the workplace. Not only does this save energy, it also reduces your heating and ventilation costs.
