I work for a truck fleet center that was once a body shop. There is / was a vacuum system above my work aria. Now its in my shop, cleaned and ready to be repurposed. It was used as a sanding dust collection system. Most of the piping is 2”. But I figured that with a little bit of work it could make a really good dust collection system for my shop. I do car repair, gun smiting, plasma cutting, welding, and wood working. The woodworking is the biggest dust contributor.
As seen in the photo it has 3 motor units, a control system “I need to break into the lock to see what’s in side.” And 2 canisters. So far all the motor units’ work. Only one had a filter. Found the fan motor specs. Made in the USA
The canisters look like a form of a cyclone design. One is 2” inlet and outlet. the other is 2’ inlet, and 4” outlet.
The hook ups, I have 10 of these and there all 2” Y to 2 – 1.5” inlets.
last but not least the control center
Now for the fun part, what would you do to make this work at its best.
