Cyclone dust collectors are designed to efficiently capture the dust and debris created by machining operations, such as planing or jointing.
Cyclone dust collectors are often referred to as two-stage dust collectors because, unlike traditional dust collectors, cyclones have two collection points for dust and debris. The primary collection point is for the heavier chips and debris, while the second collection point is for finer particulate matter. Cyclone dust collectors utilize centrifugal force as the primary means of particle separation. The airflow transitions into a downward spiral or centrifugal vortex as soon as it enters into a cyclone dust collector. This action forces the larger particles from the airstream into the first collection point, while the finer particles move with the airflow on to the second stage filter element. The particles that are captured by the filter are then collected in a secondary collection point.
