Topic tags/keywords: question

Oneida lists an external filter converter on their web site but doesn’t contain the adapter that goes from the mesh covered outlet to piping. I’ve spoken with a representative form Oneida and he told me I’d have to have one made locally. Anybody have any experience or suggestions?

It seems odd they don’t have that part included. It would only have to be a transition from the housing to a piece of 6” or larger hose….maybe you can get an HVAC boot and cut it to the slightly rounded shape on the (normally) discharge side. That would leave the round end sticking out for the hose (hope that made sense) for a flex hode to connect to the filter. A sheet metal shop could fab something up, but it be a little more expensive. It looks like it might take a 6×12 booth or so to be butchered up for it, then it would have to be completely sealed with foil tape; look around at te home center and see if something look like it might work.

In a perfect world that piece would make the top section look like the housing of a fan. Meaning the duct takeoff would be tangent to the O.D. of the housing.
A rectangle to round adapter would be the next closest thing
I can think of that would be standard to the inventory of a HVAC shop.
The tangent scroll I mentioned first would regain an inch or two of static pressure, but would cost a bunch to have special made from welded steel; probably not worth it.

Have your say...
