Oil Mist Ducting
Mist collection and conveying present their own unique challenges. If you have a standard spiral or normal clamp-connect ducting on your coolant mist collection system, I’ll bet you’ve got ugly dark trickles running down your ductwork, drips on your machinery, and possibly even puddles or slick spots on your floors. And no matter how carefully you install the pipe, seal, patch and clean, the constant drip, drip, drip continues.
That’s because normal dust collection ducting is not airtight. And, as you’ve no doubt discovered, the liquid mist from machining operations will always find the weak point.
