What is Mistkiller™ - Mist Collector?
Mistkiller™ is a trademarked, high-efficiency centrifugal mist collector, designed, developed and manufactured for the control of most types of mist, generated by the use of water-based coolants or water-based liquids.
Mistkiller™ is an air pollution control equipment and works primarily on the principle of high speed centrifugal collection of liquids. Maintenance and running costs are lower than conventional mechanical filters. The 2-pole 3-phase induction motor with suction fan is protected by a Direct On Line(DOL) starter. By capturing mist from the source on the shop floor these units contribute to a safer and healthier work environment. Mistkiller™ units can be used continuously with little periodic maintenance. We provide excellent product support using expertise based on years of industrial emission control.
Mistkiller™ can be used effectively for the capture and control of mist generated by the use of water-based liquids, typically from CNC and non-CNC machining, cleaning chambers, spraying systems, etc. The mist condenses inside the Mistkiller™ and the condensed liquid may be drained out into the generating equipment for re-use. The Mistkiller™ can be machine-mounted (built-in stand) or mounted on a separate groutable stand. Interconnection between the generating source and the Mistkiller™ uses a flexible or rigid PVC duct with the pollutant being sucked through an exhaust port on top or the side of the generating equipment. For extraction of mist from oil based liquids like neat cutting oil, we suggest the use of our Fumekiller® .
How it Works
The built-in suction fan driven by an induction motor provides a powerful suction which sucks the mist into the Mistkiller™ through the exhaust port of the generating equipment and the connecting PVC duct. A prefilter(optional) consisting of a small chamber with aluminium flakes provides the initial gross filtration of the mist. The high speed rotation of the special suction fan generates a centrifugal force which throws the mist against the inner side of the Mistkiller™ enclosure. The mist condenses under this pressure and the collected liquid flows down through the PVC duct and returns to the generating equipment for re-use. The outlet of the Mistkiller™ is provided with foam/steel media used as a postfilter. The equipment requires just periodic washing of the mesh prefilter and the foam/steel postfilter with a high pressure water jet.
Note: The suction end of these units may be split using Y-splitters for two or more suction points.
