I have a Delta 50-760 hooked up to a 50 gallon barrel as a second stage filter/collection unit and it works pretty well, emptied the bag once in 2 1/2 years, the barrel around 8 times. My wife can fill the barrel in about 3 months from her lathe. We have had this set-up for a while, but really only one of us can use it at a time.
When I test the CFMs ( I have a Pyle meter and enter the square inches of the pipe opening/144 to get square feet) going into the barrel via a 5 inch pipe from the DC, I get 500+ CFM, the 4 inch outlet of the barrel read around 300+CFMs. We only get around 150 CFM at any outlet, so I plan on redoing the main pipes.
My question is this: would running 2 separate lines from the DC (it has a 5” to 2x 4” Y connector) to the barrel or just the 5 ” pipe then 2 separate 4” lines . I plan on having 2 lines from the barrel running to 2 different area, 25’ at most in either case, just not sure what the best way between the DC and barrel would be. It seem that having 4 openings 2 in and 2 out would be less efficient than a 5” in and 2×4” out.
Anyone ever tried using more than one line out of a barrel or separator?
