    Frequently Asked Questions
    What's wrong with using a standard dust bag floor sanding system?

    Bag systems fill quickly, clog quickly, and are extremely dusty. The more you sand the worse your air flow. After about 10 minutes of sanding, there is usually a drop in suction due to restricted air flow, which means leaving behind more material on the floor and in the air. Additionally, more dust on the floor means more work for your sander, meaning your abrasives wear away quicker.

    Can I use the Vortex cyclone if my sander doesn't have a dust pipe?

    Yes. Oneida Air Systems offer a variety of retrofit handles that can convert older floor sanders to be compatible with our Vortex cyclone separator and dust collection hoses.

    How often should I clean the dust collector's cartridge filter?

    This can vary widely depending on how often your dust collector is used and what kind of dusts it's exposed to but you should typically clean it only once you've noticed a considerable drop in suction performance. In our experience this can be around once per year, but with heavy amounts of sanding it could be as often as once per month.

    A meter such as our Filter Efficiency Gauge can also be used to monitor pressure buildup and inform you when the filter need's to be cleaned.

    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.

    If they have the same horsepower, what's the difference between the 110V and 220V models?

    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.

    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. 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.

    Can this be used for wet applications as well?

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