Because it's a modular system, it can handle the dust control needs of any small home workshop - from collecting dust at the source (rotary carving tools, belt sanders, etc.) to overall shop air filtration.
How does it work?
Basically, dusty air enters the front of the unit, drawn in by a powerful impeller fan. The dust is trapped by a filter that removes over 90% of 3-4 micron sized particles (about the size of baby powder). Clean air is then exhausted out the side. For most carving applications, it is not necessary to carve inside the acrylic hood - working 6" in front of it usually provides satisfactory results. With enough suction to pick up shavings from a planer (with a 4" hose attached), the 530 can handle it all. The supplied standard 2" filter is easily removed for cleaning (filter is cleaned by tapping it into a plastic bag or a garbage can). It can be cleaned many times before replacement is necessary. The Flameproof ABS cabinet has a built-in lamp holder that accepts a standard swing-arm lamp (not included), giving you excellent light where you need it most - right at the intake. Also supplied with an 8" acrylic hood that breaks down into 3 flat panels for portability. Several accessories can be added to increase the versatility of this system - everything from adding higher efficiency filters or extra filter stages (for increased efficiency) to a 4" hose adapter, a lap-top tray, a motor tool hanger, and a deflector to direct the air towards the back.
