When vacuum pumps are first turned on they usually emit a considerable quantity of oil vapors into the air. This oil mist not only contains oil but it also contains any contaminants that were in the oil within the pump. The oil mist eliminator traps this oil mist within the filter before it is expelled into the air, and then returns the oil back to the pump. It traps particles down to 0.3 microns and is 99.97% efficient.
The oil mist eliminator also becomes very useful if the vacuum pump is out-gassed by means of the gas ballast valve. Again the oil mist will be trapped and the oil returned to the pump. By preventing the oil mist from contaminating the laboratory air, the risk of head crashes on computer disc systems can be reduced. In addition they provide a healthier environment within the laboratory.
The oil mist eliminator contains an easily replaceable paper filter which traps the oil mist allowing it to condense and return the oil to the pump. It also incorporates a safety valve to prevent pressure buildup in the pump when pumping vapors are capable of clogging the cartridge. In some cases of very heavy use, it may be desirable to exhaust the pumped gases to a fume duct or charcoal filter. For such applications, the oil mist eliminator can be fitted with a hose nipple to which an exhaust hose could be attached or our CSS-AC10- 050 charcoal filter can be attached directly to the oil mist eliminator.
Part no. EEG-L915-NW25 incorporates a NW 25 flange (O.D. - 1.5") which enables this unit to be clamped onto the exhaust port on the newer model Adixen Pump Models UM2005, UM2010, UM2015. This model also fits Edwards E1M5/8/12, E2M3/5/8/12, RV3/5/8/12, E2M0.7, E2M1, E2M1.5, and any other pump up to 12 SCFM with a NW25 fitting. Adaptors are also available for pumps without this fitting.
