Press Release Summary:
MistBuster II utilizes 3-stage filtration process to eliminate mist and smoke from airstreams. Mechanical mist impingers capture larger mist droplets, electrostatic precipitator (ESP) provides intense electrical charge on remaining contaminates, and aluminum post-filter entraps particles that may have been agglomerated on cell plates. MistBuster runs at noise levels rated to 70dBA @ 6 feet on high speed, and comes with 110-volt electrical connections.
Original Press Release:
Mistbuster(R) II Mist And Smoke Eliminator
NEW PATENT PENDING MISTBUSTER II OFFERS UNPRECEDENTED ECONOMY AND CONVENIENCE IN COMPLYING WITH THE 0.5 mg/M3 NIOSH CRITERIA FOR MACHINING FLUID MIST! NEW LARGER SIZE, RATED 1250 CFM, OFFERS EVEN MORE VERSATILITY IN HANDLING MIST AND SMOKE IN YOUR MACHINING APPLICATIONS. ELIMINATES HIGH MAINTENANCE ASSOCIATED WITH OTHER MIST COLLECTORS.
The MistBuster II, like the MistBuster, utilizes a standard three-stage filtration process to eliminate mist and smoke from the airstream. The first stage mechanical mist impingers capture most of the larger mist droplets which are coalesced and returned to the coolant sump. The second stage electrostatic precipitator (ESP) provides an intense electrical charge on the remaining contaminates which are then collected on a collection cell. The third stage aluminum post-filter entraps any particles that may have been agglomerated on the cell plates.
Because the motor and impeller are on the clean air side of the unit, dirty air won't contaminate the motor or cause the impeller to go out of balance. By eliminating any out of balance conditions, the machining process is unaffected by vibration that may be evident in other collectors.
The MistBuster II has no consumable filters to replace which means that maintenance expense is greatly reduced. Reusable concentrated cleaning solutions provided by AQE keep the filters clean. Based on the amount of contaminate collected, up to one year of service may be achieved before required maintenance. In addition, because the MistBuster doesn't have a high-pressure drop like other mist collectors, it can use a fractional horsepower motor instead of the 1-3 horsepower motors many units this size have. This savings alone may pay for the unit.
The MistBuster is also very quiet, rated 70dBA @ 6 feet on high speed. The fan speed can be reduced to capture just the nuisance mist, which will reduce noise and power consumption further.
The MistBuster comes ready to run with 110-volt electrical connections (220 volt optional). A motor starter and all the control circuitry are included. Optional accessories include inlet plenums, remote variable speed controller, and several mounting arrangements.
