Super Dust Deputy XL 6" Cyclone

For use with single stage dust collectors and 6" piping, this DIY cyclone eliminates filter clogging, suction loss, and messy dust bags by removing over 99% of fine dust and debris from the airstream, containing it safely in a customer supplied container.

Upgrade Your Tired, Old Dust Collector and Say Goodbye to Clogged Filters!

Single-stage dust collectors are great for small, hobbyist shops but they come with a cost & fine dust quickly clogs the filter, reducing suction and leaving your tools as messy as ever! Worse still, there's nothing to protect your dust collector from being damaged should you accidentally suck up large wood chunks, bolts, etc.

How do you stop losing valuable time and money on maintenance and replacement parts? Install our cyclone!

Oneida Air Systems' patented Super Dust Deputy® cyclone separates over 99% of dust and debris from the incoming airstream, virtually eliminating filter clogging, suction loss, and significantly prolonging the lifespan of your filter.

  • Prevents both fine dust and large debris from reaching your dust collector
  • Prolongs the lifespan of the filter while reducing the need for cleanings
  • Ultra-high efficiency with integrated air ramp and 6" neutral-vane inlet
  • Lightweight and compact design for fast and simple installations
  • Compatible with almost any dust collector (e.g. Delta, Grizzly, Harbor Freight, Jet, etc.)
  • Molded from an industrial, abrasion resistant HDPE resin
  • Static dissipative construction safely conveys static charge build-up to the electrical ground, preventing harmful discharges

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use this cyclone with food products?

While some customers have found use for our cyclones in food related applications (e.g. farming, coffee roasting, etc.) it is not rated as a food safe material by the FDA. This cyclone should only be used for food waste products and not anything that will re-purposed for later consumption.

Can I use this cyclone with smoldering or abrasive debris?

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.

Can I use this with a shop vacuum?

No. Super Dust Deputy cyclones are designed for use in systems with high airflow volume (above 350 CFM) and low static pressure (below 10" WC). Shop vacuums are the exact opposite of this i.e. they are low airflow (below 250 CFM) but with high air pressure (above 60" WC). For standard vacuums we recommend our regular Dust Deputy kits.

Can I vent my system outside?

If you have conditioned air in your shop, (Heat or cool) then exhausting outside can be costly. If your building is small and well-sealed, you can interfere with flue exhausts as well. Close neighbors might object. If the Dust Collection system is run intermittently it is generally not a problem. Most buildings have enough leaks and crevices where the aforementioned volume of air does not cause problems. If you have a problem opening or closing an outside door when the DC is running, crack a window slightly. The rule of thumb is for every 500 CFM have at least 1 sq/ft of return air coming back into the shop. A lot of our customers blow exhaust air outside successfully.

Do I still need to use my filter?

Yes. All of our cyclone separators are designed to be used in conjunction with an air filter as they are only meant to remove the majority of dust and debris - not all of it. Eliminating the filter entirely would allow small, harmful dust back into your shop's air.The exception to this rule is if you have the means to vent your waste air outside of the shop. If you pursue that method be sure to consider the loss of conditioned/heated air, local safety codes, and whether your neighbors will be affected by dust laden air.

How can this adapt to 6 inch S&D pvc pipe ??

We do not have any adapters to sewer and drain PVC pipe. We do not recommend using it due to the static charge it creates.

How do I install the cyclone onto my container?

Our Super Dust Deputy cyclone includes basic hardware and a foam gasket for mounting to your container's lid. We also offer a complete 17 gal. drum kit that can be readily used with any Super Dust Deputy cyclone. If you are supplying your own container, we provide this free downloadable Lid Hole Template for our customers. If you are connecting your cyclone to the dust bin via flex hose, you may also need a 6" Angle Ring Flange.

What can I use to mobilize my dust collection setup?

If you're looking for any easy way to move your cyclone around the shop, without having to lift and carry it every time, we recommend pairing the cyclone with our Universal Drum Dolly and our Angle Brace Kit (to add extra stability).

What dust bins should I use with this cyclone?

The shape and size of your container are completely up to you, so use whatever works best for your shop! A smaller container will need to be emptied more often, so most customers use at least a 17 gallon container with our Super Dust Deputy cyclones. Browse Dust Containers Any container you use must be: Airtight: Any air leaks can significantly reduce your suction and separation performance. We recommend foam gaskets or silicone caulk to provide an airtight seal. Reinforced: Light duty containers, such as typical plastic or aluminum trash bins, are not designed to withstand any suction pressure, and can collapse if used with a dust collector and cyclone.

What else do I need besides the cyclone?

In addition to the cyclone and your dust collector, you will need a reinforced, airtight container to mount it to, as well as flex hose or piping to connect it to your tools and dust collector. Any connections should be sealed using silicone caulk or HVAC foil tape.Shop for Assembly Tools

What filter works best with this cyclone?

We recommend that customers use our MERV 16± HEPA Filter Upgrade Kit as it provides the healthiest return air for your shop, as well as being easily serviceable thanks to its wide spaced pleating and non-stick membrane coating.

Which Super Dust Deputy cyclone do I need?

If your shop has fixed piping that matches the diameter of your dust collector's intake, choose a cyclone that matches that as well. So 6" ducting connected to a dust collector with a 6" inlet should use our 6" XL cyclone. The same applies for 4" ducting runs and our new 4" Deluxe cyclone. If your shop has piping that is smaller than your dust collector's inlet, such as 4" piping with a 6" inlet, then our 5" cyclone can be used to transition between them. You will need reducers to complete your setup. If you have industrial applications, such as collecting hot ash/soot or highly abrasive materials such as blasting powders, you should choose our Steel Super Dust Deputy.

Why do I need a cyclone separator?

Standard single-stage or bag-style dust collectors lose suction very quickly as the filter becomes clogged with fine dust. The cyclone uses centrifugal force to separate dust and debris from the incoming airstream, containing it safely away from the collector.This frees up the dust collector to move as much air as physically possible without hindrance. That means less downtime for filter cleaning, continuously high suction, and significantly prolonged filter life.
