Someone else can probably offer a little bit better information or ideas, but what I did last year was ran the exhaust pipe off my pump into a 5 gallon bucket. I packed the inside of the bucket with steel wool. You also need to drill some vent holes around the sides of the bucket.

Crisnjake. I have built a few reclaimers and lost pictures so this is my theory. you need to slow the oil laden air down so the mist can settle. I just made one up that uses a comp tank with the pump exhaust entering in one end and out the other. I used a glass jar from a gast vane pump and that gets the last of the mist.
What type of a oiler are you using? The more oil into the pump the more mist you will create.

REWARD- In about 50 different DeLaval 73, 74 and 75's vacuum pumps i have seen/I have never seen a "Factory oil reclaimer" If someone was to provide proof through an "Delaval 73, 74 or 75 Owners Manual" of a factory made reclaimer for those models i will pay reward.

The first pic is from a SURGE alamo owners manual that i have. This may be able to get you started in the right direction if you intend to try and build something up yourself.

Pic 2 + 3 are from an NOS Surge Oil Reclaimer screen that i have.

That screen works great for capturing the small droplets of oil out of the mist. As the oil condenses on the screen it runs down to the bottom of the container. Just like the element in a big oil bath truck air cleaner.................YEA get to a heavy equipment junk yard and do some investigating and you just might have one off a Mac truck in your future.

I put steel wool in a large coffee can and put it over the exhaust last year and it worked OK. My intention wasn't to reclaim the oil but to not coat the wooden deck the pump is sitting on with a layer of pump oil!

chrisnjake did you ever get an oil reclaimer put together. I was surprised how well the Gast glass jar ones work.
