The Dust Deputy can be used with any make, model, or size wet/dry vacuum. We recommend that it has an airflow rating of at least 50 CFM to ensure optimum dust separation performance.
You can use any shape or size container for your Dust Deputy cyclone. Keep in mind that the smaller the container, the more often you'll have to empty it.The dust container you provide must be able to be sealed airtight and must be strong enough to withstand the pressure created by your vacuum. For plastic buckets we recommend at least a 90 mil. wall thickness otherwise the container may collapse when in use.
No. This cyclone is designed for use with light debris such as wood dust. For heavy-duty applications with highly abrasive or smoldering materials, we recommend our steel, Heavy-Duty Dust Deputy kits instead.
The cyclone is 12" tall, and the complete system is 29.25" tall without castors.
This product will work with food. The material is food safe, however It is not made in a food grade facility.
It is very likely that you have an air leak somewhere in your system. Particularly small leaks can create high pitch noises and can also affect the overall separation performance of the cyclone. Here are some common places where leaks may occur
- Along the lid of the dust bin
- Hose adapter fittings on the cyclone
- Where the cyclone is mounted to the lid
- Along the length of your hose
If you can't audibly pinpoint where the leak might be coming from, one of the simplest ways to check for air leaks is with a smoke test. Kits for this can be found at most local hardware stores (usually near the HVAC sections), but it's simple to make a small DIY version or even use incense sticks at home.
With the shop vacuum turned on, simply carry the smoke-stick along the perimeter of your cyclone system and check for where the smoke is drawn into the cyclone. That will show you where your air leak is.
