Clark Air Systems OM Series Oil Mist Collectors

FEATURES: OM series Oil Mist Air Cleaners


The oil coolant fluid captured in the mechanical oil mist filters drains into the internal bottom pan of the unit then into the secondary drain pan to be recycled into the machining operation. 

The blower motor design is extremely reliable. The motor, belts, and sheaves are out of the air stream to eliminate any build-up. A backward, incline blower wheel insures non-overloading.

Description & Specifications
The standard OM-1200 oil mist air cleaner will collect high concentrations from screw machines, lathes, and other standard machining operations. The OM-2000 oil mist air cleaner is designed for extremely aggressive machines like an OKUMA. The OM-2000 oil mist air cleaner uses 2 final stages for staggered efficiencies, and a larger blower wheel to handle high static. The OM-600v and OM1200v oil mist air cleaners are vertical flow units which increases efficiency. Custom sizes up to 20,000 CFM.

The OIL MIST SERIES oil mist air cleaners have been proven superior in reliability and efficiency over other air cleaning systems such as: multi-stage oil mist filter systems, centrifugal rotation oil mist separators, and electrostatic precipitators using oil mist separation technology that is a highly efficient mechanical air/liquid oil mist separation system, specifically designed to remove air pollutants in the form of oil aerosol, oil mist and oil steam.  

Oil mist separation occurs in three steps:

Step 1:
Oil mist pre-separation through disturbance in chamber 1, where the air forcefully gains velocity.

Step 2:
Vortices in chamber 2, create high speed cyclonic action causing the heavier oil mist particles to collide and adhere to the separator profile section. 

Step 3:
Oil mist post-separation occurs due to expansion and loss of velocity of the smallest particles in the last chamber.
