The key is correct design of a filter. Commercial wood processing shops very often incorporate filters to improve the air quality for the workers. True the fine dust will not settle if it is stirred up. That’s why the filter should have capacity to filter all the air in the space up to 6 times an hour.

I am an engineer and have designed pollution control equipment and systems for 40 years.
I gave you my opinion earlier so I will not repeat myself.

Cyclones, by the way, can be way less efficient than the 5 micron bag filters if they are not properly designed as well.
