An Oil Mist Separator, also called Oil Mist Eliminator or demister, is the technical term for a filter system that is used where power generating engines or turbines operate. The place of installation ranges from power plants, hydro plants and refineries to immediate turbine manufacturers. To ensure trouble-free operation, the turbine bearings are lubricated with oil. During operation of the turbine, the friction of the shaft on the bearings causes servere heat, which is responsible for the formation of very fine oil mist droplets. Without an Oil Mist Separator, these often escape unfiltered into the atmosphere, leaving behind oil films and dirty halls.
