Air Quality Engineering, Inc. designs and manufactures the MistBuster family of industrial air cleaning systems for the source capture of mist and smoke generated by today’s machine tools.
The MistBuster product line is highly efficient at collecting and removing dangerous airborne machining application contaminants using electrostatic precipitation and/or media filtration technologies. Options include: disposable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters; extended service filter (ESF) media filters; and carbon modules for enhanced filtration and odor control.
The Air Quality Engineering, Inc. Advantage™ electronic collector cell greatly reduces the tendencies of high-efficiency electronic collector cells to short circuit. The patented cell design features grounded collection fins that extend further than positively charged repellent fins. The difference in fin lengths prevents positively charged droplets from bridging the conductive space between grounded and positively charged fins. This subtle change reduces the need to wash cells due to short circuiting and extends the life of electronic collector cells.
Air Quality Engineering, Inc. patented its unique collector fin design in 2002, patent #6428611. Watch a video on the electronic cell technology.
The unique geometry of the motorized impeller improves aerodynamic efficiency, lowers energy losses and reduces noise. Because of its improved efficiency and performance, the impeller complies with the European Union’s stringent Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive to reduce CO2 emissions by developing more efficient products. The impeller is CE compliant and carries both the ErP and CE marks.

The easy-to-use and patented water/oil selector switch from Air Quality Engineering, Inc. adjusts the electrical properties of a MistBuster system to match the type of coolant being used in a machine tool. The switch technology also helps to minimize the nuisance arcing that may occur when using water-based coolants. Air Quality Engineering, Inc. patented its variable voltage coolant selector in 2010, patent #7717984. To learn more about the technology of our water/oil selector switch, read this article.
The Air Quality Engineering, Inc. MistBuster product line features quarter-turn fasteners that cannot be overly tightened. The quick-release fasteners facilitate fast and easy removal of the side-panel door and quick access to the electrical compartment, and reduce service and repair time.
The MistBuster product line designed and manufactured by Air Quality Engineering, Inc. features a door and interior gasket profile that increases the door-to-seal contact. The industrial seal prevents coolant from leaking or pooling inside the door. Door-latch spacers prevent over-compression of the gasket and extend gasket life.
The variable-speed controller used with the MistBuster product line helps you control the airflow rate needed to maintain the right amount of negative pressure to keep contaminants contained. If the rate is too low, contaminants can migrate outside of your machine tool into the shop. If the rate is too high,
contaminants that would have otherwise collected or drained back into the machine tool are drawn into the air cleaner. In addition to precisely controlling the airflow rate, the variable speed controller saves energy and reduces noise.
Machine shops and facilities vary in size and the space available for installing air filtration systems. To make the most efficient use of the area available in your facility or plant, Air Quality Engineering, Inc. offers a variety of mounting and ducting accessories that complement the MistBuster product line. Our lineup of MistBuster mounting options includes:
The MistBuster® Total Cell Cleaner is a specially designed and highly effective detergent for cleaning electrostatic precipitator collector cells. The Air Quality Engineering, Inc. cleaner works on all
types of machine tool coolant fluids, including petroleum-based cutting oils, water-soluble coolants and synthetics. For best results on tough-to-clean fluids, mix the liquid concentrate with warm water and wash the electronic cell in an appropriately sized container available from Air Quality Engineering, Inc.
