Oil mist filters work by drawing the mist laden air into the unit and, using centrifugal force via a cyclone, throws the heavy oil and solid particles against the interior wall and vanes of the filter. As the air rises the internal chamber narrows, causing the airflow to turn tighter, throwing out smaller and finer particles. The oil is left to run down the inside of the chamber where it is collected for re-use or disposal. The cleaned air is then returned to the work shop, usually from the top of the unit.
