Extracting and filtering oil mist and oil aerosols

Up to the last droplet with contec Oil Mist Separators (COMS)

Product name

Oil Mist Separator Type 1.500/980, Flow rate 190 Nm³/h

Contec® Oil Mist Separator/Oil Mist Eliminator Type 1.500/980, Flow rate 180 Nm³/h

COMS-Type 1.500/980, Flow rate 190 Nm³/h


Installation of the Oil Mist Separator on:

  • Lube oil systems (LOS) of gas and steam turbines
  • Vacuum pumps
  • Rotating machines
  • Compressors
  • Large-scale compressors
  • Crankdrives

Technical task:

  • Filtering, separation and regaining high-quality lubrication oil including all its additives

Operational task:

  • Avoiding oil leakage (at bearings etc.) by creating a permanent slight negative pressure in the lube oil system

Global/environmental task:

  • High-efficiency filters prevent the emission of oil mist into the atmosphere
  • Protecting the environment by reducing oil mist emission down to < 3-8 mg/m³, cleaner than the German TA regulations of clean air and long­term protection of the environment
  • High quality based on 25 years of experience and multiple well-tested and proven technology
  • Modular systemVarious materials, drives, flanges, connections, paintings, filters, protection classes, NEMA-configurations, ATEX, redundant option, bypass, bypass of external air, additional filter/second filter stage, hinged cover allows a simple constructional adjustment to the respective application
  • Rapid and long-term supply of spare parts
  • Long service life and easy change of the filter elements
  • Automatic oil recycling system
  • Environmental Technology Price for 1990
  • Project-specific planning and construction
  • Various options

Explosion-proof versions/ATEX

  • Explosionsgeschützte Varianten/ATEXThe complete Contec Oil Mist Separator is certified in compliance with EC directive 94/9/EG (ATEX 100a) and can be operated in hazardous areas
  • Up-to-date in terms of state of the art safety technology
  • Suitable for application in explosive gas atmospheres category 2 and 3 (group II)
  • If requested taylor-made configuration in accordance with the ATEX directives for zone 1 (explosive atmospheres are likely to occur) or zone 2 (seldom and short-term explosive atmospheres) group IIC (propane, ethylene, hydrogen)
  • Drives Ex-pressure resistant, VIK, special voltages etc.

Redundant Series

  • Redundante VariantenRedundant motor/blower unit on bracket or frame construction
  • Motor/blower units are controlled separately by hand and check valves
  • Motor/blower unit can be dismantled easily due to hard valves before and after blower
  • Easy maintenance due to laterally reversed construction of motor/blower units


  • BypassComplete bypass with integrated check valve
  • Compact integration of a bypass system that is normally installed separately to the OMS/OME
  • „Emergency“-bypass to avoid over pressure in the LOS

Bypass of external air

  • FremdluftumgehungHand valve for admixing system-internal, purified exhaust air to control the negative pressure
  • Suitable for applications in Zone 1 hazardous areas or in areas with very dirty or polluted environmental air

Additional micro filter head piece

  • Zweite FilterstufeAdditional downstream air filter cell H11 for aerosol-free exhaust
  • Reduction of oil aerosols in the exhaust air to less than 2 mg/m³

With hinged cover

  • Mit SchwenkdeckelSpecially developed mechanical eccentric lifter
  • Slight lifting of the filter cover and easy replacement of filter elements, especially when no indoor crane is available

Series without an blower

  • Baureihe ohne GebläseFilter system without motor/blower unit
  • Filtration and separation of oil mist for lubrication systems with sufficient positive pressure
