Under normal mechanical and thermal stresses, petroleum based and synthetic oils in lubricating systems break down into fine mist and smoke particles. These particles, under pressure, escape through bearing seals to breather vents where they are exhausted. These airborne oil mists can create health and fire hazards, violate EPA/OSHA regulations, and contribute to the fouling of relays and other electronic components. Direct venting to the atmosphere is costly and may violate EPA/OSHA regulations. Because of the predominance of submicron size particles, oil mists generally cannot be effectively controlled by ordinary straining type filters or centrifugal collectors. High efficiency mist eliminators create excessive back pressure. Trion's Model 38 is up to 99% efficient, nonselective in the size of particles collected, contains no moving parts, and in most applications, is virtually self-cleaning.
