This is a shop made air cleaner that I made using an old furnace squirrel cage blower. I built the box out of 3/4 plywood and mounted the squirrel cage inside. I then made frames that would hold a standard size throw away furnace filters. I put 2 on the intake side of the blower and one on the exhaust side.
When It is time to change I throw away the first intake filter move the other 2 forward and put a fresh one on the exhaust side.
I have calculated that this blower will exchange the air in the shop about every 8 minutes.
I got the blower for free and had most of the other material around the shop so maybe have about $60 bucks invested for a very effective air cleaner that does a nice job when I am sanding or making a lot of sawdust.
