Vortex Mist Collector Air Flow

Image of Vortex Air Flow Diagram

1 – 1st-Stage Separation: The coolant mist air-stream initially collides with the fish scale profile, coalescing the mist into larger droplets. Then, through a wind-shear effect with the 70-degree, self-draining mesh filter, smoke & particles greater than 2 microns (2µm) are captured.

The 1st-Stage Filter is a patented 70-degree conical mesh filter featuring an innovative fish scale profile on the leading edge and a synthetic mesh overlay. A built in handle makes maintenance easy on this washable element.

Coolant mist collection drain outlet: Precipitated droplets are collected and returned to the coolant tank.

2 – 2nd-Stage Separation: The efficient centrifugal impeller fan located in the 2nd chamber provides highly efficient system airflow at low running noise continuing the separation process.

3 – 3rd-Stage E12 HEPA After-Filter: Finishes the air purification to a 99.97% filtering efficiency by capturing all particles greater than .3 microns (.3µm) before releasing the purified air back into the plant.
