A cyclone is a great idea if you can get one sized correctly for your DC. It’s the most efficient way to separate. The next best thing seems to be a “Thien baffle” in a trash can separator (or mounted right inside the DC). A trash can separator without the baffle robs a lot of CFM from the DC.

The number one thing with a DC is adequate filtration. You want a .5 micron filter. If you don’t have that, upgrade that first.
