2HP Dusty - Great Value No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I’ve upgraded from the Carbatec 1HP FM 320 to the Carbatec 2HP CT-2042 1PH.

This machine offers 1500cfm and is fitted with an optional 3 micron pleated cartridge. It has a 6” inlet reduced to two 4” inlets. It’s noise level is acceptable. I have tested it out jointing a few boards not only did it collect the chips very well you could also see the dust from 2” away from the jointer blades getting sucked back in.

I believe it offers great value for money.

It looks like a nice collector, however the 3 micron rating of that pleated filter concerns me. Do they offer a 1 micron or better filter?

A Cyclone will do a better job of separating the fine dust from the larger chips. It does nothing to reduce the size of the fine dust particles that escape the filter. To improve filtering, you need a better filter, like a .5 micron cartridge. That, I think, is more important than the cyclone.

Have your say...
