Oil Mist Trap -
TM / TMX Series
When an oil rotary pump is started at atmospheric pressure, and operated during low vacuum operation, the pump oil is exhausted along with the exhaust gas that is being pumped. This oil-laden exhaust mist, which consists of tiny oil droplets, appears as "smoke" exiting from the exhaust port of the pump.
The TM and TMX series oil mist traps help to ensure a clean working environment and protect indoor equipment from contamination that would otherwise be caused by this oil mist.
