Micronfilter USA’s Microil series of turbine-style mist collectors are designed for use on machine tools using water-based or whole oil-based coolants. The range consists of two models with different turbine blades and motors to provide evacuation capacity from 353 to 1,765 ft²/min.

The turbine causes the air to enter the collector housing at a high tangential speed. The turbine impeller is dynamically balanced to prevent vibration. The air then passes to the second filtration stage, which consists of a replaceable, coalescing-type pre-filter and a large, pleated cellulose filter cartridge. The combination of dynamic elimination and static filtration ensures 98 percent removal, according to the company.
