This is the air filtration unit that I built for my shop. I used a dual squirrel-cage blower attached to a 1.5hp, 220v electric motor that I was given. I attached a timer as the activation switch so that I can set it and forget it and allow it to run after I am done for the day. The cfm rating is such that it will cycle the entire volume of air in the shop about once a minute!
The first photo is of the intake side which houses two separate filters. The forth photo shows the slots where the filters live. They just slide in and out via a sliding “door” on the bottom of the unit. The fifth photo is the exhaust side which houses one filter. I always put the least capable filter on the outside intake, backed by a more capable filter. The exhaust filter is the best that I can buy at Lowes.
It works fabulously! Although it is not that pretty…sorta like me!
