When I explain dust collection to newcomers at Air Flow, I just say it’s a big vacuum cleaner.

It’s true.

There’s a fan and a capture device.

A cyclone dust collector is like a bagless vacuum cleaner.

A shaker is a lot like the vacuum shown above, except the shaker shakes the bag clean.

A cartridge and bag house collector use compressed air to push the dust off the filter.

All collectors have a hopper to collect material instead of the material ending up inside the bag.

The dang safety devices make the systems more challenging, but the basics are simple!

You can be a dust collector pro too.

See you in class.
