Comparison of the
MistBuster® with Centrifugal Type Mist
In contrast to the electrostatic
MistBuster® there are several
inherent problems with centrifugal type mist collector units. One is that
without an expensive HEPA postfilter the centrifugal type unit does not collect
the fine mist. Secondly, centrifugal units are quite maintenance
intensive. The water or oil droplets accumulated on the high rpm rotation
drums cause the drum to run out of balance which damages the bearings in a short
time. third, the units are also noisy.
Contrary to centrifugal units the electrostatic
MistBuster® is a less expensive,
effective, low maintenance, low energy consumption, self cleaning and quiet unit
which has proven itself to the point that some of our customers have discarded
existing competitive models and replaced them with our
is the ideal choice for removing petroleum, synthetic, and water-soluble
machining fluid mists and smoke. The ever increasing vigilance of OSHA with
regards to the potential toxicity of cutting fluid mist, makes this the right
time to address these issues. The
MistBuster®’s combination of high efficiency, low
maintenance and price make it unique in the marketplace. It’s advantages over
outdated competitive offerings are great.

The new REVOLUTIONARY
MistBuster® eliminates all
types of coolant mist - including hard to catch smoke and extra-fine pressurized
coolant mist. This All New Concept uses an innovative application of proven
technologies. The MistBuster®
works better and is a better value than old-style centrifugal
separators. Why? The New MistBuster offers the following advantages:
Prefilter stops chips from blowing through.
Stops ultra-fine pressurized coolant mist.
No drum to load up with chips and go out-of-balance.
No vibration problems
No bearing wear problems from out-of-balance
- No obligation 30-day performance guarantee*
Satisfied customers include demanding precision shops such as
Remelle Engineering, Jore, Hayden Precision, etc. Many references available.
The New MistBuster®
is truly a technological advance. We encourage you
to take advantage of this opportunity to purchase a cost-effective and highly
efficient product. The New
MistBuster® will delight
you with its long life, high performance and low maintenance. And, it eliminates
the centrifugal headaches!
