Certain types of oil mist collectors work in accordance with traditional filtration principles, where the oil droplets landing on the filter surface continuously join together and grow in size due to surface tension. When they reach a size where the pull of gravity is stronger than the force of adhesion to the filter combined with suction from the fan, the oil drops fall into a collector. Filter elements may be of the 5-micron, woven-mesh, micronic, porous-metal, or magnetic type. The micronic and 5-micron elements have noncleanable filter media and are disposed of when they are removed. Porous metal, woven mesh, and magnetic filter elements are usually designed to be cleaned and reused.
Oil mist is often formed during industrial processes and tooling which use oils and emulsifiers. Oil mist is an aggregate of tiny oil droplets, or a mixture of oil and water together, suspended in the air.
Filter element can be made into many shapes, like cylinder, disc, oval, square, bowl-shape, basket shape, in order to adapt to various applications. A variety of materials are optional, as well as the layer number. Filter element has wide service range, covering many areas like chemical, medical, petroleum, machinery, ship and automobiles. It plays an important role in removing impurities, gas liquid or solid liquid separation. Send us your design drawing, we can offer the customized products your need.
