Hello-

I’m helping my 93 y/o neighbor who does not use Internet to figure out the best canister by Wynn enviromental to replace the bag that came with his harbor freight dc.

I called them and they said to wait a few weeks as there refusing get the canisters for better a better fit. I guess there were some dc that would warp with the old system if their metal was to thin.

They had a 1/2 micron for 129.00 (new price)

Nano 1/2 micron, higher nerve rating for 188.00

And a commercial sponbon, which was one micron for 161.00.

It did not make sense to me that the commercial one was less in price and micron rating. She said it was stronger and the only filter they sold that could handle the paddles which are on my jet dc canister. Since I was also researcher for me too, I was leaning towards this one depending on what people say. I’m not sure I still need the paddles as I have a separator now which is amazing!

Thoughts?

Thanks,

-- Keith

I think they were describing the first 3 filters on their woodworking filter pricing page.

The page indicates that their pricing just changed a month ago, and maybe the webpage hasn’t yet.

35A274BLOL Cartridge Kit
17.5” x 23”
Open at one end with gasket, closed at other end
274 Sq. Ft. of 80/20 Blend Paper
MERV 10
99.99 % efficient at 0.5 micron
Outer Screen, No Inner Screen
Price: $115.00

35A274NANO Cartridge Kit
Included with the kit: (1) Filter #35A274NANO 17.5” x 23” Open at one end with gasket, closed at other end 274 Sq. Ft. of Nanofiber Media MERV 15 99.999 % efficient at 0.5 micron Outer Screen, No Inner Screen (3)
Price: $177.00

Note that while they are both 1/2 micron, they differ in what % efficient they are at 0.5 micron. 99.99% and 99.999% differ by a factor of 10 in how much 0.5 micron dust they pass. I don’t now if that’s when new or after they’ve been seasoned with use.

The “commercial” one I think may have been this

35A100SBOL Cartridge Kit
Included with the kit:
(1) Filter #35A100SBOL
17.5” x 23”
Open at one end with gasket, closed at other end
100 Sq. Ft. of 100% Spun Bond Polyester filter media
MERV 11
99.995% efficient at 1.0 micron and above
Outer Screen, No Inner Screen
Price: $161.00

I think you’re right about not needing the paddles if you’ve got a good separator, especially if you can blow on the outside with compressed air to clean as Wynn describes on their website. What separator are you using, just out of curiosity?

Keep in mind that shipping adds another $25-$35 to these prices.

Bob-

I’ve been using the super dust deputy with very good results. I put it on 20 gallon brute trash as the 45 gallon was just to big and figure would be to heavy for me to dump. I’ve filled it up 2-3 times to the top and only had a Few teaspoons of dust make it to the bag. I’m in the process of setting up a new shop and will be looking into elevating the actual collector over the separator.

Do you know which canister is best?

The NANO one is a better filter for sure. The question of whether it’s worth the extra $60 is your call I guess. I think the NANO one would be expected to last longer due to the material it’s made from but you’d have to ask the folks at Wynn about that. (at 93 your neighbor may not care about that too much. He’s probably not even buying cereal in the big box.) I’d go with the NANO one if it were me. I bought a different NANO filter and used it as described here. but your application is going to be different.

I ditched my filter bags a few month ago for a Wynn setup. I called for there advise, it was spot on. Higher flow, less dust, easy install. I recommend you follow their advice. They had application notes for my long obsolete DC.

BTW, I use a ratchet strap to hold the collector bag on the housing, not included.
