With emission standards becoming more and more stringent, reducing Lube Oil Reservoir Vent (LOV) mist emissions is receiving increased attention. This paper explores the nature of this oil mist, explains emission standards, describes some of the equipment that has been used in an attempt to control these emissions, and details the use of fiber beds in this application. Fiber beds have been more successful than other approaches at controlling LOV mist because of their ability to exceed emission standards with low pressure drop, minimal maintenance requirements, and guaranteed collection efficiency.
