I have two 650 cfm dust collectors. If I use both collectors on the same line will it increase the cfm total? How would I hook them up If this would work?

I would install a Y at the beginning of the run and hook them up. It’s bound to increase the suction.

It will increase your CFM but it will not increase the velocity of the air. So it will be better than a single 650 CFM, but it will not pull as rapidly as a single 1,300 cfm solution.

Think of putting two box fans side by side, the air coming out of them is still the same speed but there is twice a much of it.

What it will do is allow you to use 6” hose and 4” reducers to increase the velocity instead of 4”/2.5.”

Have your say...
