Topic tags/keywords: air filtration dust collection sanding

I read a lot about building your own air filtration unit from a box fan or furnace blower but I am still looking at manufactured one to get the extra features like timers, etc. I think that if build your own and buy 2 or more levels of filters and bags or electrostatic filters you are approaching the cost of a factory made one ( I maybe wrong?).
I would like to know if you have any experience with the Grizzly G0572 or G9956.
Do these have equal performance to the Jet or Penn?
What are the critical performance criteria to look for?

I have two Delta 50-875 air cleaners in my shop. They work really well at capturing the dust that’s floating around. My only complaint with them is they are a little noisy. In that respect if you build one, you can either pad the inside of the box or make it a bit thicker to block out some of that noise. If you’re going to buy one, what I’d look for is how much air it can move per hour, what is the smallest partial it can filter out and how loud it is and compare it with price. Can you live with one that doesn’t move as much air but costs less or is it worth it to get spend the extra money and go with one that has all the features you want. I hope this helps.

^^^I agree…I have a Delta 50-875 too. It works well, but does make noise. When thats running with the dust collector, I might as well be next to an airplane taking off.
