    In the dust world 35 microns is like the size of a grapefruit.

    It's better than nothing but not enough to save your lungs.

      haha - good one bob! he is absolutely right - from the research i've done you should be aiming for 1 micron filtration or better.

        I'm working on a way to mount it to a small cyclone and fit a Peterbuilt Air filter to the exhaust side to make a "portable" cyclone. Anyone out there know how small a particle diesel filters catch?

          If it's the red colored one then I've read good things about it as far as performance is concerned. It's definitely a one machine at a time DC though. As Bob implied, an upgrade of the bag would be needed.

          If it's the little green colored DC, forget about it!

            I believe that the diesel air filter would work great, the pleated paper element is supposed to be over 99% efficient at less than 1 micron after the filter media has an initial coating of dust. At our work we have a dust collector for collecting the abrasive grit and dust when blasting the water pipes to prepare them for pipe lining. This collector is h.e.p.a. approved and it has a big diesel air cleaner in it as the final filter. The only problem with this collector is that it weighs about 300 pounds , so we now use a big wet and dry vac with a h.e.p.a. approved filter and it works great! Hope this was helpfull Thank you
