The MistBuster® Series offers many solutions for the metalworking industry. Our industrial air cleaning systems capture harmful airborne machining application contaminants by using electrostatic precipitation and media filtration technologies. Machine shops, plants, and other facilities vary in size and available space for an air filtration system. That’s why we’ve designed several different mounting and ducting accessories for the MistBuster® product line. Read on to see the possibilities.
Each mounting solution we provide offers unique benefits. To determine which mounting accessory would best complement your MistBuster®, consider where you plan to install it. We can help determine which mounting strategy works best for your space:
An air distribution box called a plenum is used to adapt MistBusters® to ductwork. Each plenum has a drain at the bottom for connecting a hose through which metalworking fluids can run back into the sump or recollect into the machine tool itself.
All of our plenums are made of powder-coated heavy-gauge steel and work on the MB500, MB Media, MB 850 Compact, and MB850. The MB2000 and MB Infinity are only compatible with the standard plenum. Below is a table outlining the details of each plenum design:
|Plenum Design||Connection||Benefits||Image (Click To Open Larger Version)|
|Standard||One six-inch collar is standard, but it can be changed to four or eight inches. Three connections can be made to the plenum.||Versatile. The standard plenum can have three duct connections in four-, six-, or eight-inch diameters.|
|Sloped||One six- or eight-inch collar that cannot be removed.||Cost-effective with built-in legs. When mounted, it sits lower than if the MB was installed on machine mount legs with the standard plenum.|
|Sloped with legs||One six-inch collar that cannot be removed.||Plenum has a lower profile than the sloped plenum with four small legs to clear conduit, enclosure seams, and other parts running across the top of the machine tool.|
|Low-profile||One six-inch collar that cannot be removed.||Shortest plenum available. The low-profile plenum sits directly on the machine and hangs off the side.|
|Exhaust||Plenum accommodates a four-inch, six-inch, or eight-inch collar to attach ducting.||Easily installs on the top of the MistBuster® in place of the exhaust grille.|
In addition to plenums, we provide post filters to mount on the top of MistBusters® that ensure advanced filtration and capture of all particulates. Customers may choose between a HEPA, ESF, or carbon module filter. We also provide flex hose, hose clamps, and drain tubes.
