Oil mist collectors in practice



Application example Danube power plant Freudenau

Unwanted oil mist in plants leads to various problems. Depending on the machine design, the consequences can be time-consuming and costly.

Different techniques are available for separating oil mist from an air stream. Mechanical separation of oil particles from the air by coalescence has positive effects on operation. The correct use of oil mist separators supports the operator and saves costs.
