Sorry for not posting sooner, but the project was completed back in February and life got busy… Suffice to say, I haven’t had much time for testing the air cleaner’s capabilities, but I did check out the airflow and the speeds are right where they need to be. I hope that this proves to be a useful tool for keeping the air clean when I mill wood.
Here are some pics showing some of the components of the system.
The first pic is of a simple pan box that will have a 10” elbow cut into the top and then supplied with flex. This will be the cleaned air discharge point or the “supply” air. A grate is fitted over this as shown below.
This is the filter box. It fits a 2’ square bag filter that will have a spun fiberglass prefilter in front of it. The large opening you see will mate up to the motor box opening to allow maximum air flow.
The diverter box will split the supply from the motor box to the two grates.
