Do I need a Mist Separator?
Used in collaboration with other air preparation elements such as water separators, Mist Separators provide purified air free of contaminates. Mist separators remove dust particles to a size of 0.30 micrometres and oil mist. Able to provide clean air suitable for air tools, general pneumatic systems and when the removal of dust and oil particles is required.
What is a Mist Separator?
A Mist Separator separates out water, oil and particulates from the air by using a coalescing filter. Mist separators or mist eliminators are a heavy-duty coalescing type filter that combine motion along with a barrier filter to remove particulates, condensate and oil from process air.
So what’s the big deal? Removing oil, mist and particles protect the investment in your plant equipment, improve your product quality and reduce your energy cost.
Why are Mist Separators important for Air Treatment?
Compressed air purification equipment must have a very low pressure drop, long service life and be strong enough to withstand the most strenuous operating conditions. Protection from oil slugs or compressor air/oil separator failure is essential.
SMC Mist Separators
SMC’s Mist Separators can separate and remove oil mist in compressed air, which is difficult to remove by ordinary air filters and removes solid particles such as rust or carbon of more than 0.3 micron. It is the most suitable for air sources that drive pilot, metal seal solenoid valves.
Series AME separates and adsorbs aerosol state fine oil particles in compressed air and changes the oil lubricating compressed air to oil-free equivalent air. It should be applied for filtration of compressed air requiring high cleanliness for coating lines, compressed air for clean rooms and compressed air for equipment necessary to avoid oils.
Series AMD is a secondary stage of coalescing filtration to remove particles of 0.01 micron from compressed air. Applied properly, they can reduce oil carryover to 0.1 mg/m³ / 0.08 ppm or less (ISO8573-1 class 2 oil carryover).
