Preserve our planet with clean air

static oil filter breather

Oil mist is commonly present in many industrial processes that can be harmful to both workers and equipment. To tackle this issue, many facilities use oil mist eliminators to clean the air and protect machinery. One type of oil mist eliminator that has become increasingly popular in recent years is the static oil mist separator. In this article, we will discuss the benefits and features of static oil mist separators and how they work.

What is a Static Oil Mist Separator?

A static oil mist separator is an advanced type of oil mist eliminator that is designed to remove oil mist from the air without the use of moving parts. Instead, it utilizes a series of or a singe specialized filter that capture and separate oil droplets from the air using the coalescence principle. This makes static oil mist separators a highly efficient and reliable way to clean the air in industrial settings.


Features of Static Oil Mist Separators

Here are some of the key features of static oil mist separators:

  • No Moving Parts: Static oil mist separators do not have any moving parts, which makes them less prone to wear and tear. This increases their durability and reduces the risk of breakdowns, making them a cost-effective choice in the long run.
  • High Efficiency: Static oil mist separators are highly efficient and can remove up to 99.9% of oil mist from the air. This ensures that the air quality in industrial facilities is safe and healthy for workers.
  • Low Maintenance: Because static oil mist separators do not have any moving parts, they require very little maintenance. This reduces the costs associated with upkeep and allows facility managers to focus on other important tasks.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Static oil mist separators are environmentally friendly because they do not require any chemicals or additives to clean the air. This makes them a sustainable choice for industrial facilities looking to reduce their environmental impact.


How do Static Oil Mist Separators Work?

Static oil mist separators use a coalescing filter that is in charge of capturing and and separating oil droplets from the air. As the air passes through the filters, the small oil droplets are catched by the filter to make a bigger droplet that will fall under its own weight. The filtered air is then released back into the environment, free from oil mist.


Benefits of Static Oil Mist Separators

Here are some of the key benefits of using static oil mist separators in industrial facilities:

  • Protects Workers: Static oil mist separators protect workers from the harmful effects of oil mist exposure, which can cause respiratory problems and other health issues.
  • Protects Machinery: Oil mist can be harmful to machinery and can cause premature wear and tear. Static oil mist separators protect machinery by removing oil mist from the air before it can cause damage.
  • Cost-Effective: Static oil mist separators are a cost-effective choice because they require very little maintenance and have a long lifespan.



Static oil mist separators are an innovative and efficient way to remove oil mist from the air in industrial facilities. With their high efficiency, low maintenance, and environmentally friendly features, static oil mist separators are a cost-effective and sustainable choice for any facility looking to improve air quality and protect workers and machinery.
