Mist Collection Systems
Metalworking businesses are a pivotal driving force when it comes to innovation – which is why ensuring peak performance is necessary to seal your business’s success. Properly maintaining your shop equipment and environment are an essential part of making certain that your machine shop can function productively and effectively.
Metalworking Processes Produce More Than Just “Chips”
Depending on your shop’s methods, undesirable products can range from a marginal amount of atomized coolant or oil to thick smoke. Oil mist pollution in shop environments can hinder equipment performance and implicate the health of shop personnel. Oil mist can lead to smoky and slick working environments when all cylinders are firing, resulting in equipment and products slowly becoming coated with a thin layer of oil if not dealt with properly.
Oil or coolant mist build-up can contaminate the circuit boards of your shop equipment – leading to increased work interruptions and equipment downtime. Long-term exposure of your shop personnel to oil mist can result in negative health effects, as well as lead to workplace hazards like slip and fall injuries.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends that “exposure to MWF aerosols be limited to 0.4 milligrams per cubic meter of air (thoracic particulate mass) or 0.5 milligrams per cubic meter of air (total particulate mass).” NIOSH’s recommended limitation is meant to mitigate or greatly minimize the risk of respiratory disorders that are associated with exposure to MWF occurring.
Taking measures to effectively combat the implications oil or coolant mist poses to your metalworking facility is important to ensure that your business can function productively and effectively. Utilizing a highly functioning mist collection system will prevent the negative impacts of oil mist exposure to your facility’s equipment and personnel, thereby setting up your metalworking business for success!
High-Performance Mist Collectors Built for the Metalworking Industry
Canadian-built Aeroex Technologies has an intimate understanding of the needs of the metalworking industry. Over two decades ago, Aeroex found a gap in the mist collection and mist eliminator market – that being customers needing a cost-effective yet high-performing solution that worked. Today Aeroex Technologies offers 2 product lines of oil mist collector systems, the Mist-Fit and the ARO series, that are capable of effectively containing the harmful by-products of metalworking processes, regardless of how big or small the application.
Not many mist collectors available on today’s market are capable of removing byproducts that high-pressure coolants produce. As the growing trend of utilizing high-pressure coolants increases within the metalworking industry, Aeroex’s Mist-Fit line of mist collector systems effectively removes byproducts of high-pressure coolants commonly used in equipment processes.
As metalworking businesses must comply with indoor air quality standards set by The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH), and Health Canada ensure your facility is equipped with a highly effective mist collector system is of the utmost importance. Our Mist-Fit series of mist collectors can also be customized with additional accessories to ensure that your facility can meet air quality standards set by occupational regulator bodies.
Aeroex’s line of ARO mist collectors are designed with the unique needs of the metalworking industry in mind. ARO mist collectors specialize in oil mist collection to ensure your facility’s indoor air quality is not compromised through oil mist exposure. ARO mist collectors achieve this in their effectiveness to remove oil mist particles that are as small as 0.3µm with up to 99.97% efficiency via multi-stage filtration.
In addition to being extremely efficient, other features ARO series mist collectors offer include long filter life, durability, flexibility in installation options, and easy preventative maintenance (simply power wash the first 2 stages of filters).
With so many different factors to consider, finding a mist collector system that meets the unique needs of your facility can start to feel like a cumbersome task. Luckily, our dedicated team of Engineers is here to assess your unique needs and provide you with a custom solution you can rely on to effectively remove harmful byproducts like oil or coolant mist from your shop environment.

Mist Collection Systems to Combat High-Pressure Coolants
The use of high-pressure coolants has become increasingly more popular in machine shops. High-pressure coolants have a lower equipment temperature in comparison to other lubricants and can flush out chips that are formed during metalworking processes. As a result, utilizing high-pressure coolants can keep equipment cycle times low. While using high-pressure coolants can improve machine processing performance, it does so at the expense of producing and emitting harmful coolant mist into your facility environment.
As the industry continues to consume more high-pressure coolants, so too will the need for effective mist collector solutions. Luckily, Aeroex mist collectors are here to fit the bill. Our mist collector systems can be fitted to virtually any machine, from 5-Axis Machining Centers to Swiss Lathes.
