Topic tags/keywords: filter bags dust collection filters dust collection bags cyclone bags cyclone filters

Can anyone please share with me your source for purchasing cloth bags for dust collection systems? This is the “fines” collection bag that’s at the discharge of the fan. (I purchased this system from the previous home owner and I can’t find any literature on where he purchased them from.)

It has a 4” opening at the top and a zipper at the bottom. I’m fairly certain that this isn’t just “off the shelf”, but I could be wrong…

Any help here would be greatly appreciated! (A picture of the clogged one is below:)

You can get one of those from Rockler.

I’m guessing that this is for fine dust, that the main particles are dropped in the center of the cyclone.

I would make sure thqat you buy 5 micron or smaller.

Just as a follow up to this post (in case anyone searches for this topic in the future), I dug a bit more and found a company nearby that will fabricate a bag filter to one’s desired specs. This one will be about twice as large as the off-the-shelf one from Rockler and comes with a bottom zipper for disposal. I also didn’t know that you can wash these (as the sales rep informed me) – I’d be afraid that it would plug up my washing machine, so I’ll definitely go over it pretty well with the shop vac before I try that.

Anyway, in case anyone else is in the same situation in the future, here is their website: Blue Sky Filters
