Really my goals are two fold: lower cost and keeping up the CFM of the collector.

I wouldn’t worry then about a cyclone if you send the air outside. 3HP should move plenty of air, even for several wood chip producers running at the same time. Outside, you probably could get away with some form of a large box/bin around the vent to generally contain the dust, but beyond that any filtering would be overkill.

Inside, the cyclone helps keep the filter clean, which helps keep the airflow up.
