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.
Yes, absolutely. This cyclone is built with heavy-gauge, powder coated steel for industrial applications collecting highly abrasive or smoldering materials e.g. hot ash/soot, blasting powders, concrete, grinding dust, etc. Please note that you should also ensure that your vacuum/dust collector is rated to accept these same types of materials i.e. do not collect hot/smoldering materials if your vacuum isn't normally capable of collecting this type of waste.
Yes! Both our molded resin and cold-rolled steel Dust Deputy® Cyclones use the same patented design to pre-separate over 99% of dust and debris, protecting your vacuum and filter from clogs and suction loss. The only difference between the cyclones is their durability.
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.
The Industrial Steel Dust Deputy is built for the toughest applications. If you're going to be sucking up large amounts of highly abrasive materials such as metals and gravel, the heavy-gauge cold-rolled steel cyclone will perform better and longer than our injection molded models.It's also ideal if you're expecting to suck up high-temperature materials such as hot coals and ash.
In short, no. The steel cyclone has a powder-coat finish, ensuring that it's durable and rust resistant, but if you expect to have your cyclone exposed to water on a regular basis (e.g. exposed to harsh weather, submerged in water, etc.) we recommend you find additional covering to prevent corrosion over time.
No. The Steel Dust Deputy has straight 2" inlet and outlet ports. A 2.25" Hose Adapter and Hose Coupler are included with the steel Deluxe and DIY kits to simplify hose connections for customers.
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.
