Cyclone Under Construction Bill Pentz Style Dust
The medical research shows the higher and longer the fine dust exposure the worse the damage. this should terrify small shop woodworkers, because osha testing shows most small shop workers who vent their dust collection systems inside get more fine dust exposure in a few hours woodworking than large facility workers get in months of full time. These blower tables show at typical dust collection pressures we need at least a 3 hp small shop dust collector or 5 hp cyclone to move our 1000 cfm required for good fine dust collection. using the air formula with this 1000 cfm and our 4000 fpm requirement it shows we need all 7" diameter ducts and down drops. Dust collector blowers must overcome the resistance of our tool hoods, flex hose, ducting, and filters. cyclone blowers must also overcome the high resistance from a cyclone forcing air to turn in a tight separation spiral. to overcome this resistance vendors use larger diameter impellers to create more pressure. Dust collection firms found over years of research and experience that most small shop stationary tools require about 350 cubic feet per minute (cfm) airflow to provide good chip collection which collects the visible dust and keeps our floors, work surfaces and tools clear of sawdust and chips. Dust collection blowers. dust collection blowers come in two flavors, material movement blowers or clean air blowers. clean air blowers used in dust collection use caged and airfoil impellers. almost all dust collectors instead use material movement blowers with impellers that only get a maximum of about 45% power efficiency.

Strangely, air at typical dust collection volumes and pressures is more like water. it will barely compress at all, so even a little restrictive opening can kill airflow. using a small blower inlet may save the dust collector motors but kills the airflow we need to power our cyclones and still collect the fine dust. This site helps you pick the right respirator mask to get good fine dust protection. it shares how to pick, size, protect and clean your dust collection filters. it shares how to design and build a good cyclone separator, blower, filter stack, filter cleanout, muffler and downdraft table. Pentz ef5 with filters single phase our new pentz ef5 cyclone offers all of the performance benefits of our cv1800 and cvmax systems, with the added advantage of an all metal construction. it's the only metal cyclone dust collection system on the market designed and authorized by bill pentz.

time to upgrade my dust collector to a larger bill pentz design. i start the blower housing in this video. the impeller and motor were purchased from clear vue. thank you for watching my video! i extend my kudos to john heisz for his excellent channel and recent video on “6 guru level tips for setting up a small shop” stumpy's website▻ stumpynubs subscribe▻ user stumpynubsworkshop couldn't wait to test it ingredients: bill pentz's calculator, 2 mm lexan, some osb boards, soft rubber for seals, couple of tubes of silicone, 200 l barrel and stumpy's website▻ stumpynubs subscribe▻ user stumpynubsworkshop part two of the homemade dust in which we swap out the oem impeller from a king canada 120v 1.5hp dust collector for a replacement (larger) impeller from a rikon ( p60 200 22), and learn big thank you to clearvue for sponsoring this video: bit.ly 2mcy43j use "wilkerdos" at checkout to get 5% off your purchase at one of the most important safety upgrades you can make for your shop is good quality dust collection. if you run a bunch of power tools, it's hard to argue with the what makes an effective dust collection system? it's important to choose the right dust collector, but it's equally important to choose the right hose size, hose type, finishing up! the cyclone is all together and up and running. it's loud! really loud. in fact my neighbors called the police on me because its so loud. my wife
