The Van Air Systems Mist Eliminator is a special purpose coalescing filter for removing large volumes of oil and oil aerosols with a pressure drop of 1 psid or less. Minimizing pressure drop translates directly to energy savings. With a thick bed of glass fiber, the Mist Eliminator element facilitates self-cleaning by continuous draining. Contaminants are trapped at various stages within the fiber bed, not only at the surface. This prevents clogging and keeps pressure drop low.
