The MistBuster® family of products is designed for the control and filtration of smoke, oil and coolant mist generated in CNC machining applications. The MistBuster® brand, manufactured by Air Quality Engineering, Inc. ( has been an innovative product in the air filtration industry. It's multi-patented design provides superior performance in a cost competitive, compact and flexible package. The MistBuster® mist collector has been refined over many years of field experience culminating in its Next Generation design that features a decrease in its physical size, while improving its filtration efficiency, lengthening the time between electronic collector cell service and increasing the reliability of all components. The patented AQE Advantage Cell™ significantly reduces the amount of required maintenance as explained here.

The MistBuster® features a variable speed motor control allowing the user to dial in the MistBuster® to the minimum required airflow for your machine tool cavity. This results in maximized energy efficiency filter life reducing maintenance.

Air Quality Engineering, Inc. investment in metallurgy research resulted in the creation of a state of the art ionization wire alloy that minimizes breakage and still achieves excellent ionization. This proprietary alloy and design has greatly reduced the need to replace ionization wires.

The MistBuster® product has been carefully designed to minimize vibration. Dynamically balanced impellers mounted on rubber isolation mounts mitigates the possibility of transmitting vibration to your machine tool, protecting the integrity of your precision tolerances.

The next generation of MistBuster® electrostatic units utilize patented "floating contact" design and "air breaks" on contact boards to provide a more robust solution to the problem of short circuits due to coolant tracking. This means more up-time and less maintenance.

MistBuster® patented coolant selector switch easily adjusts the high-voltage used with its collector cells to compensate for varying dielectric qualities of coolants and oils.

Next Generation MistBuster® is designed to protect the electrical components – all electrical components are completely removed from the air stream and are completely isolated in a separate compartment to prevent fouling from dirty air. Easy access is gained to electrical components in mere seconds via quick turn fasteners, eliminating the need to remove dozens of screws.

The MistBuster® family of air filtration products includes both disposable media systems as well as electrostatic precipitators. The MistBuster® product line has expanded to include centralized media systems for those who prefer a larger, central system that can be ducted to multiple machine tools, or to handle those larger machine tools that are not well enclosed.

With a variety of mounting options, model sizes and available configurations, there is sure to be a MistBuster® solution that will meet your specific requirements. Contact us today for a no-obligation quote on a tailored solution to your needs!
