Does dust Deputy reduce suction?
Standard wet/dry vacuums rely entirely on their small cartridge filters to clean the incoming air before recirculating it into the room. These filters can quickly become clogged with dust and debris, significantly reducing the vacuum’s air suction performance.
Can you use a vacuum cleaner as a dust collector?
A shop-vac (generic use, not the name brand) will work just fine for light-duty dust collection. Particularly when the dust stream is run through a cyclone collector.
Can you use a shop vac as a dust extractor?
A basic shop vacuum can power a budget dust collection system with parts you can buy off the shelf from your local home center.
Is the dust Deputy worth it?
This is beautifully designed – works flawlessly. I hooked this up to a shop vac 12 gal 6hp and it works without shooting fine dust particles everywhere. I also have a bag inside the vac that further helps with filtration + the filter on the vac itself.
Why does dust deputy have 2 buckets?
Why are there two buckets in the Dust Deputy Deluxe kit? There are two stacked buckets so that you can attach the outside one to your vac and add casters to make the kit portable if you choose. The inside bucket collects the debris and will be the one that you will empty.
What is the difference between a dust collector and a vacuum?
A Vacuum is High-Pressure, Low-Volume and a Dust Collector is a Low-Pressure, High Volume. Vacuums are used mainly for precision cleaning and material conveyance, and dust collectors for full scale facility or process filtration.
What is a good cfm for a shop vac?
around 125 CFM
We know that a good vacuum has a balanced CFM and water lift rating – so what do good numbers look like? A strong air flow rating is around 125 CFM and higher. This is strong enough air flow to pick up most anything you may work with – including dust from 5″ or smaller grinders.
What is the difference between a dust extractor and a shop vac?
Dust collectors are simply able to pull air and dust at a much greater CFM (cubic feet per minute). A shop vac is strong enough to get the majority of dust, though.
Do you use the dustopper + Shop Vac cart?
The Dustopper + Shop Vac cart is a much needed shop addition. It’s so nice having the bucket on a set of wheels now. My dust collection cart is part of a monthly blogger DIY project challenge. April’s theme is organization. The goal was to create a project that organizes some part of the home for under $50.
