Mist Collection Systems

Serving Clients Throughout Southern California, Mexico, and Arizona

Mist collection is often used in metal-working facilities. The mist is a byproduct of water and oil-based solutions used as coolants and lubricants during the metal-working process. The combination of these solutions while cutting, polishing, and grinding metal sends this mist into the air.

There are risks involved in the mist lingering in the air and not being collected, such as employee health, slippery surfaces, and low visibility in the workspace. Mist collectors are essential to keep production running smoothly.

Different particles make up the mist. Depending on what your facility is used for, you may need multiple collectors to take care of the various sources of the problem.

We have experience designing mist collection systems for diverse applications and facilities. Everything we create aligns with OSHA regulations for indoor air quality, as well as NFPA standards. Some of the particulates we focus on include both oil-based and water-soluble veils of mist:

air filtration

Oil Mist Filtration

This type of mist comes from the oil that’s used to lube equipment. We’re able to design robust overhead and centralized systems that mitigate oil mist where source capture is not cost-effective or possible. We implement systems that require little downtime and maintenance, with extended filter lifespans.

Fine mist can be hard to manage without the right collection and filtration system. AAir Purification Systems uses proven products from trusted manufacturers to design mist collection, pre-filtration and mitigation systems that preserve the integrity of your air. In doing so, our systems promote better worker health, while protecting sensitive systems in your facilities from damage caused by particulate-laden air. We have experience designing mist collection systems for diverse applications and facilities. Every system we design aligns with OSHA regulations for indoor air quality, as well as NFPA standards. Some of the particulates we focus on include both oil-based and water-soluble mists:

Oil mist

We’re able to design robust overhead and centralized systems that mitigate oil mist where source capture is not cost-effective or possible. We implement systems that require little down time and maintenance, with extended filter lifespans.

CNC mist

With a focus on longevity and continuous runtime operations, we design CNC mist collection systems that are effective at mitigating the particulate-laden air associated with fabrication and machining from CNC machines. Some of the many application we develop mist collection for include grinding, milling, turning and more.

Coolant mist

For coolant mist mitigation, we design systems with high CFM draw for maximum air quality and coolant recovery. Our focus is on creating a cost-efficient system that meets OSHA standards for indoor air quality.

Electrostatic mist:

Removing fine particulate from mist requires the power of an electrostatic precipitator. We design and install these units as part of a comprehensive mist control system. Our electrostatic precipitators are up to 99% effective!


From machine-mounted mist collection systems, to ducted workstations, to portable collection units, AAir Purification Systems will tailor mist collection to meet the demands of your work environment.
