Why Do I Need a Mist Eliminator?

Do you really need a mist-eliminator?

What is a Mist-Eliminator? Mist Eliminator separate out water, oil and particulates from the air by using a coalescing filter. 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.

How's it work? 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.

Other Ways to Protect your Compressor
