Frequently Asked Questions
Can this be used for wet applications as well?

No. This system is designed for use collecting dry materials only.

Is this product compatible with Quick-Clamp Duct?

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...

What dust can be collected with your collector?

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...

Why does the bin level indicator flash when the bin is empty?

Because the Dust Sentry works via an adjustable infrared sensor, this can sometimes trigger false positives with an empty container because of the reflective surface at the bottom of the steel drum.

This can be resolved by painting/coloring the inside bottom of the drum so that it is no longer reflective enough to affect the sensor.
