Oil Mist Eliminator Advantages Highlighted by Dollinger

Press Release
Tuesday, June 04, 2013

The Oil Mist Eliminator captures & coalesces lube oil mist, and returns it back to the oil tank for re-use.

The company explains that installing an Oil Mist Eliminator on turbines and compressors has numerous advantages to ongoing site operation.

Subjecting lubrication oil to high temperature and high-speed mechanical forces in the lube oil tank creates oil mist which would otherwise be vented to atmosphere. An Oil Mist Eliminator captures and coalesces this mist, returning it back to the lube oil tank for re-use.

Major advantages of doing this include increased protection of the environment, reduced oil wastage, easier machine maintenance and improved site safety conditions. When considering the benefits of using an oil mist eliminator, SPX’s Dollinger brand offers leading efficiency, performance and reliability.

The comany says that its oil mist eliminators offer exceptional performance, trapping oil droplets and particles down to 0.3 micron. This eliminates visible oil plumes from machinery, recapturing and recirculating the oil for moreeconomical operation. This efficient removal of oil mists keeps the surrounding environment and equipment cleaner and so easier to maintain, preventing the formation of dangerous and slippery surrounding work areas.

Once installed and running, the SPX Dollinger oil mist eliminator requires minimum maintenance with a filter element life of up to five years.

To ensure minimum installation costs and disruption to existing equipment on site, SPX offers an efficient customisation service for its oil mist eliminators. The units are designed to be compact and, depending on the site requirements, can be engineered to meet specific space constraints and connection needs. They are also manufactured to be exceptionally robust, withstanding the rigours of operation expected at power generation utilities and similar industrial sites.

The Dollinger oil mist eliminator range includes both non-blower and blower assist models for positive and negative pressure systems.
