MistMax Mist Collector

June 01, 2014

MistMax mist collector from Micro Air Clean Air Systems is designed with the newest technology and proprietary engineering to achieve extreme efficiency (99.98 percent) without the use of additional HEPA filters. The patented multilayer MistMax filter design was developed by Micro Air to provide filter life of one to five years, depending on the application.

MistMax is ideal for controlling oil and coolant mist in applications such as high-speed machining centers, heat treating, cold drawing, and wet grinding. A variety of sizes is available from 600 to 3,600 cfm to meet specific mist collection applications.

Related Glossary Terms

  • centers


    Cone-shaped pins that support a workpiece by one or two ends during machining. The centers fit into holes drilled in the workpiece ends. Centers that turn with the workpiece are called “live” centers; those that do not are called “dead” centers.

  • coolant


    Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.

  • grinding


    Machining operation in which material is removed from the workpiece by a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, slurry, etc. Takes various forms: surface grinding (creates flat and/or squared surfaces); cylindrical grinding (for external cylindrical and tapered shapes, fillets, undercuts, etc.); centerless grinding; chamfering; thread and form grinding; tool and cutter grinding; offhand grinding; lapping and polishing (grinding with extremely fine grits to create ultrasmooth surfaces); honing; and disc grinding.
