Glove box accesories---VPL Oil Mist Filter

The Laboratory Glovebox Oil Mist Filter is a filter designed for laboratory environments to remove oil mists and particles generated inside gloveboxes. Laboratory gloveboxes are commonly used for working with sensitive samples, manipulating toxic substances or experiments with biosafety requirements. Oil mist filters help keep the air inside gloveboxes clean and prevent contaminants from spreading into the laboratory environment.

Laboratory glovebox oil mist filters work similarly to other oil mist filters and consist of two main steps: trapping and filtration:

Capture: When experimental operations result in oil mist inside the glove box, the oil droplets are captured by the filter, usually by one or more layers of fibrous material surface adsorption of oil droplets. These materials have a high surface area and small pore size to effectively capture oil mist particles.

Filtration: The captured oil droplets are further filtered to ensure more efficient oil mist removal. The filtration medium can be activated carbon, HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters and other materials to adsorb and filter the oil mist, thus purifying the air inside the glove box.

VPL Oil Mist Filter is a filter designed for industrial machinery and other equipment to remove liquid oil mist and solid particles generated by machine operation. These oil mist and particles will affect the normal operation of machinery and equipment, and may cause pollution and harm to the environment of the production plant.VPL oil mist filter adopts advanced materials and technology, which can efficiently remove the oil mist and particles, and protect the production environment and machinery and equipment.

The working principle of VPL oil mist filters is based on wet filtration technology and consists of three main steps:

Capture: When mechanical equipment is in operation, liquid oil mist and solid particles enter the VPL oil mist filter through the air inlet. An inlet deflector inside the filter traps the deposited liquid oil droplets and particles in the fog core collector at the center of the filter.

Separation: Inside the fog core collector, the oil droplets and particles come into contact with water and are adsorbed by the water particles. The oil droplets and particles are then deposited in a settling tank at the bottom of the filter.

Purification: By circulating and filtering the water inside the filter, the contaminants in the settling pool are effectively removed, keeping the air inside the VPL Oil Mist Filter clean.

The advantage of VPL oil mist filter is that it can effectively remove oil mist and particles generated by mechanical equipment under different working conditions such as high temperature and high pressure, low temperature and low pressure. In addition, the VPL oil mist filter is characterized by excellent materials, advanced design and simple operation, which makes it easy to install and maintain, reduces the cost of use and extends the service life of the filter.

The selection of a laboratory glove box oil mist filter should be based on laboratory operational needs and safety requirements. Some filters provide additional protection, such as adsorption filtration for specific gases or hazardous substances. In addition, changing or cleaning the filter on a regular basis is a critical step in maintaining its filtration effectiveness.
