Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use this steel cyclone with smoldering or abrasive debris?

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.

Does the steel cyclone have the same performance as your resin models?

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.

Does the Steel Dust Deputy have tapered inlets like your resin models?

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.

Is the steel Dust Deputy cyclone rust-proof?

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.

What shop vacuum do you recommend for the Dust Deputy?

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.

What type of dust bin works best?

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.

Why should I choose the metal version of your Dust Deputy cyclone?

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.
