Air-Filtration Systems That Capture Oil Mist 

Clean Air America’s ScandMist air-filtration systems are intended for the capture and removal of oil mist from manufacturing facilities. The most recent additions to the line, the ScandMist 70D and 100D, are compact solutions for keeping air clean in any size plant. The systems feature fiber-bed technology that allows oil mist to condense on filter fibers, where it collects to drain into a reservoir for future collection. An optional variable frequency drive measures air speed through the filters and helps boost efficiency.
