The installation of an oil mist eliminator on a gas turbine generating or compression package is a real asset to a newly designed system and a very good enhancement to units that have been operating in the field for several years. The mist eliminator not only helps a facility to comply with environmental regulations by removing the oil mist generated by high-speed rotating equipment, but also returns the coalesced oil that would be lost during the venting process, to the lube oil reservoir, greatly reducing make-up oil costs. Another by-product of the installation of a mist eliminator system is the prevention of oil mist settling on the equipment, floors, handrails, and staircases which not only creates an unpleasant work environment but possibly a dangerously slippery safety hazard. The various mist eliminator systems available will, as designed, or can be adapted to, comply with the individual turbine owner’s specific application and project requirements in solving his emission issues.
