So, today I put my order in for the Grizzly hanging air filter that’s on sale. I just replaced my Shop-Vac & DD with a 3HP DC, so I feel like I’m moving in the right direction.
My question now is, where to hang this unit. My shop is a 2 car garage, and my space is 22×22. However, there is an I-beam that spans the garage, and extends about 5-6” down from the ceiling. Also, I have a single 4” DC hose run on the ceiling, which could be repositioned if necessary, but obviously, the I-beam is going nowhere.
Does the unit need to be hung a certain distance from the ceiling to account for that I-beam? Also, with this in mind, where would be the optimum placement, given the super awesome shop layout picture below.
The brown box is my bench. The green box is the DC. The long grey box is the I-beam (the picture stinks, its actually centered, with about 10’ on either side). The two white boxes are hanging florescent lights (4’). The bottom half of the picture is where the garage doors open, so I can’t mount there. I store all of my lumber on the lower half of the drawing. Almost all of my dust-producing tasks, with the exception of the occasional routing tasks at the bench, are performed under those florescent lights, and my machines are all on mobile bases.
