Mist Eliminator provides 99.97% filtration efficiency.

Press Release Summary:

Hilco® Vent Mist Eliminator removes oil and airborne contaminants from air streams, regardless of particle size. Blower-assisted model is intended for oil systems that cannot withstand back pressure or where back pressure may not be desirable. Coalescer-Only model is appropriate where back pressure on oil system is not a concern. Mist eliminator with heat exchanger is used in situations where oil can reach temperatues of 200°F and above.

New Hilco® Vent Mist Eliminator Provides 99.97% Filtration Efficiency

ELMIRA -- The Hilco® Vent Mist Eliminator provides 99.97% efficiency in removing oil and airborne contaminants from air streams - regardless of particle size. This highly effective tool is the newest offering from the Hilliard Corporation, and part of Hilliard's complete line of industrial filtration products. The Hilco Vent Mist Eliminator removes visible oil vapor from the air stream of vents in lubricating oil systems of large, high-speed rotating equipment such as gas turbines, steam turbines, turbo compressors, turbo generators, reciprocating engines, high-speed couplings, and gearboxes. To the advantage of both the facility and its employees, the Vent Mist Eliminator provides a cleaner, safer work environment. It eliminates oily residue build-up on engine room floors, enclosures and stairwells, while also improving indoor/outdoor air quality, and reducing fire hazards. The Vent Mist Eliminator also prevents oil mist from contaminating air or soil, helping facilities to comply with environmental regulations. Utilizing the Vent Mist Eliminator is also an ideal way to greatly reduce make-up oil costs. Oil that would normally be lost during the venting process is captured and returned to the sump. In fact, the Eliminator quickly pays for itself through oil savings. The Hilco Vent Mist Eliminator can be tailored to fit specific application requirements. It is virtually maintenance free (especially when compared to electrostatic precipitation), can be enclosure-roof mounted, and its compact design fits in tight spaces. There are currently three versions available: Blower-Assisted Mist Eliminator:
This model is designed for oil systems that cannot withstand back pressure or where back pressure may not be desirable. It can be installed with an airflow-restriction device to pull vacuum. It is also designed to maintain atmospheric condition in the oil system. Coalescer-Only Mist Eliminator:
This model is appropriate for use where back pressure on an oil system is not a concern. It can be sized large enough to meet pressure-drop requirements. It can also be used where an existing blower is present to assist flow. Mist Eliminator with Heat Exchanger:
This model is often used where the oil can reach excessively high temperatures (200° F and above). By cooling the air stream, the oil mist coalesces more easily and is therefore removed more efficiently.
