I have wanted to do some upgrades for my dust collection system for some time now. But before I add the new HEPA cartridge filter from Wynn Environmental, I want to take some measurements.
I test my system as it is now with a felt bag that is supposed to filter down to 1.5-2 microns and get a reading. I test with and without an Oneida Super Dust Deputy.
Then I add the HEPA filter and take some more reading and compare the results.
I know this is some pretty dry material; however the numbers that the manufacturers throw at us in regards to CFM at the unit is a mystery as to how they come up with them. This is more of a sanity check for me, and establishes some numbers to work towards to get better cleaner air in my shop.
If you have any questions, PM me or leave a reply. I also welcome suggestions on how to improve my situation.
