Why is Mist Collection Needed in Your Shop?

Installing a mist collector or a central mist collection system does more than just keep your shop area clean and productive. With today’s rising costs, you want to control your machining expenses as much as possible. A good way to reduce coolant cost is to recycle coolant back to your machine tool. Noil mist collectors are ideal for evacuating both water-soluble and oil-based coolant mist and oil mist, and recycles them back to your machine tool.

By having a mist collector in place, you can also save on your heating and cooling costs, because without it windows and shop doors must be opened to help clear the air, causing your heating and air conditioning expenses to rise. Oil and dirt also clog up your heating and cooling filters, requiring more frequent replacement. Mist collection systems help to keep oil and dirt from building up on your shop floors, walls and ceilings which, in turn, reduces your housekeeping costs. Undoubtedly you have invested a great deal in your shop machinery. Oil mist can also interfere with the workings of sensitive electronic equipment. A mist eliminator helps keep your sensitive machinery free from operational problems due to oil and dirt buildup.

What are your machines emitting into your shop environment? Health and safety issues can have a big impact on your bottom line. Airborne oil mist can land everywhere, not only on floors and machinery but also on your employees. An oil mist collector helps avoid employee accidents due to slips and falls from oil and dirt buildup on shop floors. A mist collector also helps to improve air quality which in turn aids in reducing the chance your employees may develop serious health issues. Studies have shown exposure to metalworking fluids and machine mist can cause a multitude of health risks. An oil mist filter goes a long way in helping keep your shop in compliance with OSHA and EPA regulations.

Perhaps you already have coolant mist collectors in use? If you see mist or smoke emanating from the unit, then it isn’t doing the job. Beware of mist collectors that are big on promises but fail to deliver. Click here to find out why Coral mist collection units are the better choice.

How High-Efficiency Mist Collectors Alleviate Workplace Hazards

Noil Drawing

Summary: To meet heightened concerns about health and safety in the workplace, ITA offers high-efficiency Mist Collectors that far exceed regulatory guidelines.

Berlin, Maryland – At a time when state and federal regulators may be moving toward tighter workplace safety requirements, ITA is assuring its customers that Coral Noil Mist Collectors far exceed minimum health and safety standards.

Noil Mist Collectors remove both water-soluble and oil-based mist used in machine tool operations through a three-stage filtration system. In the first stage an impeller converts the mist back into a liquid and recovers the coolant for recycling. Next, a dense cellulose filter cartridge removes finely aspirated particles. A third-stage high-efficiency polyester filter rated 99.9% @ 2 micron particle size removes remaining particles.

For shops that require an even greater degree of filtration, ITA offers customers a fourth stage Post Filter accessory that increases efficiency to 99.9% @ 0.3 micron particle size, and returns the clean air back into the work area.

“Airborne oil mist can land everywhere, on floors, machinery and employees,” according to an ITA company spokesperson. “An effective mist collector reduces worker accidents caused by slips and falls from oil and dirt buildup on shop floors. And it improves air quality, minimizing health risks that metalworking fluids and machine mist can cause.”

The high-speed impeller in Noil Mist Collectors is dynamically balanced, and the second and third stage filters do not rotate, assuring quiet and vibration-free operation, another workplace benefit. The compact design of the unit offers various mounting options: directly to the machinery, or on a floor stand, wall mount or ceiling suspension.

ITA’s spokesperson points out that the same triple filtration system that provides safety benefits to workers also cuts down on a facility’s production costs. By efficiently evacuating coolant mist and oil mist from the air, Noil Mist Collectors can then recycle them back to the machine tool, reducing the cost of coolants. A cleaner workplace environment also means less dirt and grime that can collect and eventually foul up machinery. Noil Mist Collector filters are made to deliver long-lasting performance, significantly reducing the frequency of filter maintenance and machine downtime. The polyester filter can even be washed and reused.

Noil Mist Collectors are protected by a full five-year warranty. For more information, or help in finding the right mist collection system for your facility, call 410-777-8555 to speak to an ITA expert. Or visit the Noil Mist Brochure page where you can download the Noil brochure.
