I have been thinking about upgrading my dust collection system and PSI’s TEMPEST Portable 2HP Cyclone Dust Collector caught my eye. They have it on sale now for $895 and free shipping. The 0.3 micron cannister would trap more of the fines, and the 2hp blower has a 14” impeller.
The small footprint (27-1/2” X 21-1/4”) is nice, and at this point I don’t intend to do any hard plumbing (I have one of Rockler’s Dust-Right expandable hoses and Dust-Right fittings on all of my machines).
There is no drop-out bag/bin for the fines that the filter catches. Instead, the filter is under a constant re-circulation cycle back into the cyclone. PSI recommends giving the filter a ‘deep cleaning’ once every couple of weeks with compressed air.
Any thoughts on a system with a re-circulation hookup instead of a dropout bin/bag?
If anybody has this cyclone, I would be interested in your experience and opinions.
