National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants on Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines
New environmental regulations will require that stationary engines used for on-site power production capture the oil mist that is generated by the crankcase of the reciprocating equipment. The HILCO oil mist eliminator removes visible oil vapor in the air stream of the vents from lubricating oil systems of large, high speed rotating equipment. This in turn prevents contamination of the air and soil, as well as keeping a clean and safe work environment.
The oil mist generated by the equipment is drawn from the breather where it is then pulled through a coalescing filter cartridge. The oil / contaminant free air is released into the environment, while the filtered lube oil is returned to the sump. HILCO oil mist eliminators operate at an efficiency of 99.97% or greater of removal of airborne contaminants .3 micron or below. They are direct replacements for existing non-specified mist elimination systems.
