We have an Oil Mist Eliminator that is Just Right for the Job

Short Description

Our OM36V Series oil mist eliminator is available in polyethylene plastic or powder coated carbon steel, both with a rugged 16 gauge steel frame. The poly panels have become the most popular feature in Industrial Maid’s line of oil mist filtration systems. Customers recognize the value of a design that allows for lower initial cost, is non-corrosive and dent and scratch resistant, runs quieter and is environmentally friendly. Three stages of oil mist collectors produce a 99% efficiency rating on most installations by eliminating airborne particles and allowing for the recirculation of filtered air.

When it is time to replace the eliminator filters, it is equally important to note that our oil mist collector specifications intentionally include standard size filters making them less expensive and easier to order. For maximum efficiency and effectiveness we only use high efficiency filters, from HEPA and absorber modules to mini-pleats.

The OM36V oil mist eliminator comes in four standard sizes, but the engineers at Industrial Maid pride themselves on the reputation they have built for designing oil mist collector systems for those customers with unique challenges such as limited floor space, difficulty with access, extremely heavy oil or coolant mist production and many more.

A Variety of Options Means a Variety of Ways to Capture Oil Mist

The motor on an Industrial Maid oil mist collector can be direct or belt drive with a forward curved or high pressure composite blower allowing for air flow ranges from 1,000 to 8,000 CFM. A backward inclined direct drive fan is also available for ducted or high-static applications.

The OM36V oil mist eliminator represents the latest technology in the collection of hazardous oil mist created by machinery fluid. The bluish-white smoke that is created by many processes is made up of oil droplets that range in size from 10µm down to 0.03µm. During the first of three oil mist filtration stages, air contaminated with coolant mist is pulled through 2" filters known as "impingers". It is here that the largest oil mist and coolant mist particles are captured and eliminated from the air. At the second stage, a 2" high efficiency filter called a "mist eliminator" (ME) handles remaining sub-micron oil mist droplets. The third and final stage features a 95% efficiency, Merv 15 primary filter. Optional HEPA after-filters and refillable carbon V-bank modules are available for applications that require additional filtration.

The oil mist eliminator can be mounted on a 24" heavy duty stand, brackets or hung from eyebolts if space is a concern.

Oil Mist doesn’t have to Pose a Health Hazard to Workers

As health concerns regarding oil mist grow so does the number of terms people in the industry use to describe the equipment used to collect or eliminate it. When you hear or read about oil mist separators, oil mist collectors, coolant mist collectors, oil mist collectors, oil mist eliminators, coolant mist eliminators, oil mist filters or other combinations of these terms, they are all referring to the same general category of air filtration equipment.

The OM36V Series Oil Mist Collector is specifically designed to work at the source to collect and remove coolant mist, oil mist, accompanying smoke and sub-micron particles that become airborne. Advanced technology in CNC machines has created increased productivity which in turn has increased the need for improved lubricating oils to deal with faster spindle speeds and overall capacity of the machining tools found in most plants today. The potential for serious health risks when workers inhale these metalworking fluids has lead to increased warnings by OSHA that employers must take serious steps to capture oil mist in the work environment. Several factors such as the type of coolant mist that is released into the ambient air, the amount or level of contamination and the length of exposure must be considered carefully when selecting the coolant mist eliminator that is right for each application.


Parts washing lines, solvent and chemical processes, light or heavy CNC or lathe machining, cutting, heading, turning, wet grinding are just a small number of the many processes which use or produce oil and coolant mists. The OM36V Series oil mist eliminator allows our engineers the flexibility to design a system that will be the guaranteed answer to your industrial air filtration challenge.

Give us a call (877-624-3247) or fill out our information request form if you need more information when selecting the oil mist eliminator that you can trust to protect your most valuable asset - your workforce. If you have an oil or coolant mist challenge - we have a guaranteed solution for you.

The M Series ducted air cleaners are available in ranges of 1,000 to 15,000 CFM.

Oil Mist Filters don’t have to be Expensive or Hard to Find

Although many machining processes have made technological advancements in recent history, one thing remains a constant; many still require significant amounts of oil and coolants to protect expensive equipment as surfaces work against either other during operation. These machining liquids create what is referred to as oil mist or coolant mist when high pressure and high temperatures cause them to break down and enter the surrounding air as droplets of moisture.

Not so long ago it was more common than not to allow oil mist to escape into the surrounding air. Recent concerns regarding the health and safety of workers exposed to coolant mist and potential fire hazards have many manufacturers investigating ways to eliminate these risks. Research shows us that the most effective placement of a coolant mist eliminator is at the source – usually the machine center enclosures. Industrial Maid’s OM36V Series is designed to pull oil mist from the source before it is released into ambient factory or plant air.

At Industrial Maid we understand the increasing demands to meet safety and environmental regulations. While the safety of your workforce is always top priority, we know from experience that it is possible to protect employees and still save time and money with a well-designed industrial air filtration system that fits - that does the job right. Give us a call at 877-624-3247 to visit with an engineer about how to select an oil mist collector that addresses air quality, energy savings, ease of maintenance and cost of filter replacement - all in one. We also know that "time is money" so if you aren’t able to call during our office hours (8:00 AM and 5:00 PM CT) just send us a quick email sales@industrial-maid.com and we will get back to you the following morning.
