WHY CONTROL OIL MIST & SMOKE
IN YOUR SHOP?
q Reduced Health Risks
Any form of pollution is potentially dangerous to the lungs, larynx, and skin.
q Reduced Accident Risks
Oil mist creates slippery surfaces which increase accident rates.
q Reduced Fire Hazards
Oil deposits create a serious fire risk by allowing fires to spread quickly.
q Coolant Cost Savings
The Royal Filtermist recycles coolant and returns it to your machine rather than venting it to the atmosphere.
q Heating and Cooling Cost Savings
The Royal Filtermist returns clean air to the shop instead of exhausting it outdoors.
Cost
Savings
q Cleaning and Maintenance Cost Savings
Uncontrolled airborne mist and smoke deposits result in more frequent cleaning of exposed surfaces.
q Thermal Stability
q
q
q
INCREASED
PRODUCTIVITY
q
Filtermist aids in temperature control which can help machines hold tighter tolerances over long-running
jobs and/or during unmanned production.
Improved Employee Attendance
A contaminated shop environment often results in higher worker absenteeism and lower morale.
Less Machine Downtime
Fouled contacts in electronic equipment cause expensive downtime.
Higher Speeds and Feeds
Machining operations can run at higher speeds and feeds without the negative effects of increased mist
and smoke production.
Better Lighting
Haze from mist and smoke and grimy buildup on shop lighting fixtures cause even the most well-lit shops to
take on a dingy appearance. Bright, cheerful environments improve employee morale and performance.
q Fewer Workmen’s Compensation Claims
The increase in workmen’s compensation rates from one large claim can cost more than an air cleaning
system for an entire factory.
q Government Regulations
The current OSHA and NIOSH limits on airborne oil mist are 5 mg/cubic meter, and this requirement is
expected to become even stricter in the future. The Royal Filtermist exceeds both the current and new
proposed limits.
q Attracting and Keeping Good Employees
Your employees expect and deserve a workplace that is as hazard-free as you can make it. One customer,
when asked why he wanted to control the oil mist and smoke in his plant, responded, “I wouldn't expect my
office people to work with smoke pouring out of their computers, and I sure don’t expect my shop
workers to work on machines with oil mist pouring out of them!”
The greatest challenge facing today's manufacturers is attracting and keeping
talented employees. Don't risk losing good people to the competition because
of poor air quality in your shop. Call Royal today!

COMMON MIST COLLECTION METHODS
In order to fully understand why the Royal Filtermist is the best choice for handling oil mist and smoke produced by the metalworking industry, it is
important to have some general knowledge of how other types of collection systems work. This section contains an overview of the most common
methods for controlling mist and smoke. While these systems all have some positive features, their drawbacks make them unsuitable for use in most
metalworking applications.
External Venting
At one time, the only method for controlling oil mist and smoke in a shop was to vent it out of the building. This was done either by opening the doors
and windows or installing a ventilation system. While this method may look like an attractive low-cost solution, the potential dangers should be enough
to make any shop owner reconsider this practice.
Environmental Hazards Today, it is illegal in many states to exhaust
pollutants to the atmosphere. Offending companies run the risk of large fines
and lawsuits.
Fire Hazards Over time, oil deposits collect in the ductwork of ventilation
systems, making them prime targets for flash fires and providing pathways for
fires to spread quickly.
Cleanliness Problems As mist and smoke travels through a shop to the
exhaust points, it collects on exposed surfaces. Over time, a grimy buildup
occurs on machines, lights, floors, and walls, resulting in dirty, unsafe conditions.
Media-Type Filtration Systems
Media-type filtration systems typically consist of a blower and several filters of varying efficiencies. The contaminated air first passes through a coarse
pre-filter where the largest particles are filtered out. It then moves through one or two medium-range filters before reaching the final filter, which is
usually made from a high-efficiency HEPA material. Media-type systems are good at collecting dry contaminants such as welding smoke and graphite
dust. However, they are often not suitable for metalworking applications where coolant mist is the primary contaminant.
Dirty Air
Filter (Fine)
Clean Air
High Operating Costs The biggest drawback of media-type filtration systems
is the high operating cost associated with replacement filters. These filters are
designed to retain contaminants, so they will become clogged with use.
Usually they are made from media that cannot be cleaned, so the only
alternative is replacement. Depending upon the cost of the filters and the
replacement frequency, this type of system can be quite expensive to
operate over the long term.
Decreased Throughput Another problem with multi-stage filter units is that
the throughput of the system, measured in cfm, decreases as contaminants
become trapped in the pores of the filters. It is important to maintain the
correct throughput of any collection system. Reduced throughput means
reduced collection, allowing contaminants to escape into the shop air.

Not for Mist Most media filters are designed to collect dry pollutants such as

filter media.

COMMON MIST COLLECTION METHODS
Electrostatic Precipitators
Electrostatic preciptitators use a blower to draw mist and smoke particles past an ionizer, which imparts a positive charge to them. They then pass across
a series of alternately like-charged and grounded collection plates. The particles are repelled by the like-charged plates and forced towards the grounded
plates where they collect. The filtered air is returned to the shop.
Charged Particles
Dirty Air
Variable Efficiency Although electrostatic systems are very
efficient when the collection plates are clean, the efficiency drops off
drastically as the plates become covered with particles. Each time a
particle deposits on a plate, it eliminates a spot for other particles to
adhere to.
Blower
Maintenance Costs To maintain high efficiency, the collection
plates must be cleaned often. This can be expensive because the
residue is considered to be hazardous waste and must be disposed
of by a certified waste handling company. Many electrostatic
systems are sold with costly maintenance contracts, resulting in
operating costs that greatly exceed the original unit purchase price.
Pre-filter
Ionizer
Enclosure
Health Hazards As the collection plates become full, a phenomenon
known as arcing can occur. This arcing results in the production of
ozone, which has been found to cause a variety of health problems.
This potential danger (and the fear of lawsuits) has caused many U.S.
companies to remove electrostatic units from their factories.
Collector Plates
(Charged particles adhere to
grounded plates)
The Dangers of Ozone
Ozone produced by electrostatic precipitators presents a significant health risk to humans. Here’s what OSHA and the EPA have to
say about ozone on their websites:
OSHA
Ozone is highly injurious and potentially lethal to experimental animals at concentrations as low as a few parts per million (ppm). A study in
which young mice were exposed to 1 ppm ozone for 1 or 2 days reported damage to alveolar tissue. Human populations chronically exposed
to lower concentrations of ozone were observed to have adverse changes in lung function. Human volunteers exposed to 0.5 ppm ozone for
3 hours per day, 6 days per week, for 12 weeks showed significant adverse changes in lung function. Another report showed a 20 percent
reduction in timed vital lung capacity in persons exposed to average concentrations of ozone of 1.5 ppm for 2 hours.
http://www.osha.gov/dts/sltc/methods/inorganic/id214/id214.html
EPA
Breathing ozone can trigger a variety of health problems including chest pain, coughing, throat irritation, and congestion. It can worsen
bronchitis, emphysema, and asthma. "Bad" ozone also can reduce lung function and inflame the linings of the lungs. Repeated exposure may
permanently scar lung tissue. http://www.epa.gov/oar/oaqps/gooduphigh/
With these health (and potential lawsuit) risks, many companies have established
policies that ban the use of electrostatic mist collectors in their facilities.

The principle of impaction can be
easily understood by considering a
car passing through a fog bank. As
the fog hits the windshield, tiny mist
particles begin to grow into water
droplets which are then shed off.
Dirty Air In
The Royal Filtermist uses the principle of centrifugal impaction to eliminate mist. With only
three main components: a drum, a motor, and the housing, its operation is quite simple.
1. A three-phase motor rotates the internal drum at high speed, creating a
vacuum which draws mist particles into the center of the drum.
2. The mist particles then collide with the rotating drum’s vanes and are
forced together with other particles, causing them to coalesce and form
larger, droplet-sized particles.
3. As the particles grow into droplets, they pass through the perforations in
the rotating drum and centrifugal force causes them to be thrown onto the
inner wall of the housing.
Note – it is important to understand that the pads that line the
Filtermist drum are not filters. These porous pads are present
to slow airflow through the unit, thereby maximizing contact
with the drum vanes for greatest overall impaction efficiency.
4. The particles are then forced, under pressure, up the walls of the housing
to the oil return channel, where they are subsequently drained back to the
machine’s coolant tank.
5. Clean, oil-free air blows past the motor and is returned to the shop.
6. Since this process relies on the mechanical principle of centrifugal
impaction and the rotational speed remains constant, the Royal
Filtermist maintains a continuous high efficiency.
7. For certain applications that produce smoke and/or very fine mist
particles, an after filter may be required. This filter easily mounts to the top
of the Filtermist unit by slipping over the motor and it is secured in place
with two toggle clips. An after filter mounted to a Royal Filtermist
typically enjoys a comparably long service life because most contaminants
are removed by the impaction process prior to reaching the filter.
IMPORTANT — All Filtermist units should be electrically wired to run continuously throughout a standard shift. Units should
never be wired to switch on and off with the machining cycle. Please see installation manual for additional information.

WHY IS THE ROYAL FILTERMIST THE BEST
CHOICE FOR THE METALWORKING INDUSTRY?
High Efficiency
No Heat/AC Waste
The Royal Filtermist maintains a continuous high efficiency through
constant drum speed. Performance does not decrease with use. See page
146 for efficiency information.
Processed air is returned to the shop, reducing heating and cooling
costs. A/C service calls are also reduced by protecting intake filters
from contaminants.
Low Maintenance
Flexibility
Because the unit works on a mechanical principle instead of electrostatics
or multi-stage filters, the Royal Filtermist requires significantly less
maintenance than most other filtration systems on the market. The small
amount of regular maintenance that is required can be easily performed by
the customer. See page 156 for maintenance information.
Units are portable and typically service individual machines, allowing
machines to be easily moved or replaced. Large central systems are
connected to multiple machines by costly and non-flexible ductwork,
making relocation difficult.
Heavy-Duty Construction
When you purchase a Royal Filtermist, you receive a quality product.
Features found on all units include:
q Heavy-duty 3-phase motors that meet all federal, state and local
electrical and safety codes.
q All exposed surfaces on the drum and housing are powder coated for
wear resistance and long life.
q Very tight manufacturing tolerances provide precise fits between mating parts
and ensure that the unit will provide years of trouble-free service.
Vibration Control
The Royal Filtermist incorporates unique features to help it overcome
vibration-related problems that are sometimes associated with other
centrifugal impaction type systems:
q All drums are dynamically balanced at the factory and tested
before shipping.
q Vertical drum arrangement provides even mass distribution.
q Motor is connected to housing with four neoprene mounts, effectively
isolating vibration and controlling startup torque.
Low Operating Costs
The Royal Filtermist is cost-effective to own and operate. Other types of
systems (media, electrostatic, etc.) require frequent maintenance and costly
filter replacement. Companies that sell these units often push expensive
maintenance contracts that can far exceed the initial purchase price.
Filtermist also consumes very little electrical power compared to other
systems due to the use of energy-efficient IE3 motors. In fact, the tighter
the machine enclosure, the lower the power draw.
138
Modular Design
The Royal Filtermist is a modular system. Accessories such as after filters,
dust cyclones, noise attenuators, etc. can be easily added as applications
require. See pages 140–141 for information on performance accessories.
Easy To Install
Multiple installation configurations allow the Filtermist to overcome almost
any mounting obstacle. See pages 142–143 for mounting details.
Wide Range of Sizes
Four sizes ranging from 300–1200 cfm are available to suit all applications.
Strong Technical Support
A large network of local distributors and factory-trained representatives
are strategically located throughout the country to provide quick and
accurate on-site technical support.

FILTERMIST PERFORMANCE ACCESSORIES
Royal Products offers a number of optional accessories designed to enhance Filtermist performance, particularly in very demanding applications. Please
contact one of our engineers at 1-800-645-4174 if you have any questions regarding the use of these performance accessories.
After Filter
After filters are available for all Royal Filtermist models. They can be used in
any application where extreme high efficiency is required, and are especially
useful for dealing with the following conditions:
q Applications where heavy, dry smoke is generated along with the mist.
q Applications that produce very fine mist particles which may sometimes
bypass the impaction process, (jobs that run at very high spindle speeds,
high-pressure coolant, etc.).
Important — An after filter should not be used to compensate for blow-thru
that could result from improper installation. If you have questions or concerns
about your installation, please contact one of our engineers at 1-800-645-4174.
After Filter Advantages
Easy Installation
The Royal after filter simply slides over the Filtermist motor and is
secured in place with two toggle clips.
High Efficiency
Adding an after filter to a Royal Filtermist unit will greatly increase
efficiency in the sub-micron range. See page 146 for additional
information on efficiency.
Noise Reduction
An after filter reduces the noise level of a Filtermist unit by
approximately 3 dB.
Long Life
Royal after filters have extended service lives due to their large
surface area. They also last longer because the centrifugal impaction
process of the Filtermist removes most of the pollutants before they
ever reach the filter. Systems that rely entirely on media filters for the
filtering process tend to have much shorter service lives.
Full Range
After filters are available for all size Filtermist units. Models are also
available for older series units.
Chip Deflector
q Protects the Filtermist intake from chips and direct coolant splash.
q Opening is large enough to ensure that airflow and intake velocity are not
A
negatively affected.
q Powder coated finish protects against rust.

splash. A common mistake is to locate the collection point too close to the cutting action, causing
raw coolant and chips to be drawn into the unit. For example, the intake on a CNC lathe should be located
near the tailstock-end of the machine, not over the chuck. Whenever possible, draw the mist across the
enclosure from an area of heavy concentration to an area of lighter concentration.
For machines where the intake must be positioned near the cutting action, a deflector is often necessary
(see page 140). A deflector protects the intake from chips and coolant yet allows mist and smoke to pass
around it for collection.

CHOOSING THE CORRECT FILTERMIST UNIT
Sizing Units
The Royal Filtermist is available in four sizes, based on throughput
capacities: 300, 575, 900, and 1200 cfm. Royal Products maintains a
database with specifications for many different machine tools, and we
recommend you contact one of our applications engineers for your
specific sizing requirements.
For those who would like a general rule of thumb, we recommend using
the following formula to obtain a rough idea of your requirements:
Filtermist Size = Internal Enclosure Volume x 5
For example, suppose you have a small CNC lathe with an internal work
envelope measuring 5ft. wide x 3ft. deep x 4ft. high. Multiplying 5x3x4,
we see that the machine has an enclosure volume of 60 cu. ft.
Multiplying 60x5 we see that 300 cfm is required, so we’d choose the
model FX-300.
Although this rule is very simple, it is handy for determining the general
size requirements.
If you are not sure which unit to use, please contact your local
Royal Filtermist Distributor or one of our applications engineers.
Grinding
Grinding applications can sometimes be more demanding than typical turning and
milling applications because grinding produces fine dust particles that become
entrained in the mist stream. Over time, this dust can accumulate on the drum pads,
resulting in the need for more frequent maintenance. If regular maintenance is not
performed and a significant volume of solid matter builds up in the drum, balance and
vibration issues may arise.
A simple way to overcome the problems associated with grinding dust is to fit
the Filtermist with a cyclonic swarf separator. The separator mounts below the
Filtermist unit and uses cyclonic action to separate out the solid matter, leaving the
drum free to process the mist and preventing buildup on the pads. A valve on the
bottom of the unit facilitates drainage.
Royal Products recommends using a cyclonic swarf separator for all
grinding applications.

CHOOSING THE CORRECT FILTERMIST UNIT
Turning
CNC lathes are relatively easy applications to tackle because the machines
are usually well enclosed and direct mounting is often possible. On any well
enclosed machine, it is recommended that the Filtermist intake point be located
as far from the machining action as possible so that the mist is drawn from an
area of heavy concentration to an area of lighter concentration. On CNC lathes,
therefore, the ideal intake location is on the right side of the machine, near the
tailstock. On subspindle lathes where the right-hand wall moves along the z-axis,
it might be necessary for the Filtermist to have a more central location.
Milling
For enclosed machining centers, the Filtermist intake position should be located in an
upper corner of the enclosure. Installation on open-top machines is not as clear-cut. If
enclosing the machine is not possible, a successful installation can often be accomplished
by suspending the Filtermist unit above the machine and running ducting down into
the enclosure. It may be necessary to adjust the intake location so that it is close enough
to the spindle to collect the mist, yet far enough away to keep chips from being drawn in.
A Y-junction may be used to draw mist from both sides of the spindle, and a chip deflector
may also come in handy.
High-Pressure Coolant
More and more machine tools today are equipped with high-pressure coolant systems. Machines running with high-pressure coolant tend to create more
mist, and the particle size also tends to be smaller than normal. For most high-pressure coolant applications, the standard rules apply and Filtermist works
very well. However, in some unique situations it may be necessary to take a different approach. Here are two ideas that may be worth considering:
q Downsize the Filtermist unit. On many high-pressure applications, we have seen the smaller models FX-300 and FX-575 work extremely
well on large machines that would normally require a model FX-1200. Before downsizing, please speak to one of our applications
engineers to ensure that this approach is the best one for your application.
q Add a cyclonic swarf separator. Although this device was designed for removing solid particles from the mist stream, it has proven itself
to be quite adept as a pre-filter for high-pressure coolant applications. A large portion of the mist is actually removed by the cyclone,
leaving the balance to be easily handled by the Filtermist unit.
Please keep in mind that the ideas presented in this section are simply suggestions, and may not be appropriate for your
particular situation. If you have any questions regarding a Filtermist application, please contact one of our engineers at
1-800-645-4174 for assistance.

EFFICIENCY
When evaluating the effectiveness of any mist collection system, two major aspects must be considered:
q The unit must be capable of handling the full volume of mist produced by the application.
q The unit must be efficient at capturing particles of all sizes.
Independent testing has proven the Royal Filtermist FX Series to be very effective at handling large volumes of mist and highly efficient at dealing with
the full spectrum of particle sizes found in typical metalworking mist concentrations.
While a typical metalworking mist concentration is made up of many different-sized particles, 80–90% of these particles are larger than one micron in
size. Fewer than 10% of the particles are smaller than 0.5 micron in size.
In order to effectively eliminate mist, the Royal Filtermist incorporates a two-phase process:
1. The first phase utilizes the mechanical process of centrifugal
impaction. This centrifugal impaction process is the heart of the
Filtermist’s operating principle and it is highly effective at handling
large volumes of mist.
The centrifugal impaction process is almost 100% efficient at
handling particles larger than one micron, which make up the
bulk of the mist. When considering a weighted average of the particle
size in a typical metalworking mist concentration, overall efficiency of
the impaction process is roughly 98%.
2. Many may consider an efficiency of 98% to be adequate for their
needs. However, if additional efficiency is required, the Royal
Filtermist FX Series units may be equipped with an after filter to
handle the small amount of residual mist that bypasses the impaction
process. Royal after filters use a carefully selected grade of media
that provides an effective balance between being fine enough to
capture the smallest of particles while still allowing the filter to
enjoy a comparatively long service life. Overall efficiency of a
Royal Filtermist FX Series unit equipped with an after filter
exceeds 99.5%.
OSHA and NIOSH Standards
The OSHA and NIOSH limits on airborne mist particles are currently set at 5mg/m3. It is believed that in the coming years this level will be reduced by a
factor of ten to a new level of 0.5 mg/m3. The Royal Filtermist FX is so efficient that when equipped with an after filter, it easily meets not only the
current limit, but even the stricter proposed limit.

In a recent test carried out by an independent contractor, a
Mori Seiki SL75ML was fitted with a model FX-1200 Filtermist unit and
after filter. Particle counters were set up to monitor the air at three
locations during machining — the ambient shop air, the Filtermist intake,
and the Filtermist exhaust. The test results confirm that the Filtermist
easily meets the challenge. Particle concentration levels at the Filtermist
exhaust were well below 0.5 mg/m3. In fact, the air at the Filtermist
exhaust was four-times cleaner than the ambient shop air!
IMPORTANT — The Royal Filtermist is designed to help your shop meet current and future air quality standards. It
must be understood, however, that there are many variables involved in controlling shop pollution and we cannot
guarantee that the Filtermist alone will prevent occupational diseases to workers. It is your responsibility to establish an
effective overall industrial hygiene program designed to comply with OSHA and NIOSH standards. If you have any
questions regarding this issue, please contact us at 1-800-645-4174.

Royal Products. We suggest you have a
licensed electrician perform the wiring of
the unit. Detailed instructions can be
supplied with each unit.
How often do the drum pads need
to be changed?
How do Filtermist units ship?
All Filtermist FX Series units can be shipped via UPS. Due to dimensional
limitations, the floor stand must ship by truck. When ordering multiple
units, it is often more cost effective to ship by truck.
An important aspect to understand about the Royal Filtermist is that the
drum pads are not filters. These porous pads are present to slow airflow
through the unit, thereby maximizing contact with the drum vanes for
greatest overall impaction efficiency.
Because the Royal Filtermist utilizes the mechanical process of centrifugal
impaction to eliminate mist, maintenance requirements are minimal. As a
result, some customers have reported that they have had units operating
for up to five years without ever needing to change the drum pads.
For guidelines regarding Filtermist maintenance, please see page 156.
How do I install the Royal Filtermist
in my shop?
The Royal Filtermist is a relatively easy piece of equipment to install, and
most shops handle their own installations. Detailed instructions are included
with each unit.
To ensure a smooth installation process, be sure you have ordered all of the
necessary mounting and performance accessories. We recommend using
the handy checklist featured on page 159. Please note that all accessories
offered in this catalog have been tested for performance and safety.
Substituting accessories with non-Royal items could void the Filtermist
warranty, affect performance, and result in dangerous operating conditions.
What happens if I have a problem?
In addition to our large network of authorized distributors, Royal Products
employs Regional Business Managers and over 50 factory-trained
representatives located throughout the country. In the event of a
problem that cannot be solved over the phone, we will arrange for a local
Royal Products representative to visit your factory and work with you
towards a solution. We firmly believe that after-sales support is as
important as the sale itself, and we are committed to this effort.

FILTERMIST MAINTENANCE
One of the most popular features of the Royal Filtermist is the fact that it
requires minimal maintenance. Unlike media-type systems and electrostatic
units, the Royal Filtermist works almost as well when it is dirty as it does
when it is clean.
For safety purposes, it is necessary to periodically inspect the main components
of the Royal Filtermist for wear or damage, especially if the unit is making loud
noises or exhibiting vibration. Additionally, we recommend that these simple
inspection/maintenance procedures be carried out every 2,000 operating
hours, (every 1,000 hours for more demanding applications):
q Inspect the drum pads for wear and/or matter buildup that could
affect airflow or cause vibration, and replace as necessary. It is
important to understand that the pads that line the Filtermist drum
are not filters. Their presence slows airflow through the unit,
thereby maximizing contact with the drum vanes for greatest overall
impaction efficiency.
Some customers report not having to change drum pads in
certain applications for periods of up to five years. While this
may or may not be the case in your application, it is important to
understand that any visible sign of vibration is often related to solid
matter buildup and should be addressed immediately.
q Inspect and replace the motor mounts and torque limiting straps if
worn or damaged.
q Inspect silencer and replace if worn or damaged. If the silencer is
saturated with oil, it is important to investigate the reason why. This
could be the result of a clogged oil return channel or incorrect drum
rotation. Important — the Filtermist will create suction regardless of
which way the drum spins, but it will only properly collect and return
oil mist if the drum is spinning in the proper direction as indicated by
the arrow on the housing.
q Inspect the housing seal and replace if necessary. This is especially
important on older series units. The redesigned housing of the
Filtermist FX Series virtually eliminates the chance of leakage around
the seal area.
q Check all mounting fixtures such as stands and suspension kits for
damage or signs of fatigue. Repair or replace as necessary.
q Check all other accessories for wear and/or damage (ducting, flange
adapters, etc.). Repair or replace as necessary.
q For your convenience, Royal Products offers complete maintenance
kits for all Filtermist units. These value-priced kits include a drum
pad set, a motor mount set, a silencer, and a housing seal. These
items are also available separately.
IMPORTANT — The recommended maintenance schedule and procedures outlined above are meant to serve as a guide
for most common Filtermist applications. More detailed information is provided in the Royal Filtermist Installation and
Maintenance Manual. When dealing with any equipment of this type, common sense must prevail. Any unsafe conditions
pertaining to the Royal Filtermist must be immediately attended to. It is also important to understand that when Royal
Filtermist units are used in demanding applications such as grinding or cast iron machining, more frequent maintenance
may be required. If you have any questions regarding the maintenance or operation of your Royal Filtermist units, please
refer to the Royal Filtermist Installation and Maintenance Manual or contact one of our engineers at 1-800-645-4174.
