WhoshouldIsee Tracks What Is Oil Mist? | Filtermist UK

Oil Mist is generated when oil or coolant is sprayed onto parts to aid the manufacturing process - often using compressed air to atomize the oil.

In metalworking industries such as automotive, aerospace, medical device manufacturing, power generation and general precision machining there are four basic types of metalworking fluids used to keep metal cool during manufacturing processes: Straight Oils, also known as ‘cutting’ or ‘neat’ oils; Soluble Oils; Semi-synthetic Fluids and Synthetic Fluids. Each has its own specific properties and is more suitable in certain applications, but they all have one thing in common – when sprayed, they all generate airborne mist particles known as oil mist.
