No. This system is designed for use collecting dry materials only.
The Mini-Gorilla's inlet measures as 5" on the outer diameter, making it ideal for accepting raw (uncrimped) ductwork fittings over the inlet such as reducers and quick-connects. Crimped ductwork will not usually fit into the inlet but can be done when necessary and secured in place with foil tape.Flex hose can also be pulled over the inlet but will generally be a tight fit. Heat (such as a hair dryer) can be gently applied to the molded inlet to make the resin more maleable and allow for easier hose fittings - exercise caution when heat-treating so as not to damage the system. OAS highly recommends our 5" Quick-Connect fitting (item #DQK050000) for making direct flex hose connections with the molded Mini Gorilla.
Yes but you will need to install a Machine Adapter into the inlet first. These adapters are smaller on the raw end than traditional ducting so that they can slip into the ports on systems and tools i.e. a 5" Quick-Clamp Duct Machine Adapter will measure ~4.9" O.D. on the raw end.
In general, the 220V model will have lower running amperage than the 110V, which can be an advantage for operators using multiple tools on the same breaker. There is no difference in airflow performance between different voltage variations of the system. You should purchase the unit that best matches the power requirements of your shop.
Oneida Air Systems' dust collectors are designed and tested for wood and wood dust. They can and have been be used effectively for various other dusts and chips such as drywall dust, paper dust, agricultural dust, metal chips and other forms of debris. The customer is however, cautioned that some common materials when cut, ground or processed by machinery may become very dangerous: highly toxic, flammable, or deflagrable and explosive and they should therefore ensure that you use your particular use of a dust collection system in accordance to national, state, local, NFPA, OSHA and all other applicable codes.
The use of hand cranks that "beat" the filter can damage the filter's pleating material overtime, so our systems are not built with such systems. The filter on the Mini Gorilla dust collector is easily cleaned by blowing compressed air from the outside of the filter. This knocks the dust off of the pleats (which are coated with a non-stick, PFTE membrane) and the resulting fine dusts falls to the bottom of the filter. At the bottom of the filter is a 2.5" port. Simply open that port and the dust waste can be emptied into a bucket or connected to a shop vacuum for easy disposal. This can all be done without having to remove the filter from the system and helps maintain the filter's lifespan for years to come.
No. We do not offer the Mini-Gorilla dust collector in a wall mounted option.
