Topic tags/keywords: question sanding jig resource tip air filter filter dust collection

I am building a shop air filter with a squirrel cage fan….you know the type. I have a left over electrostatic filter from my last house. I believe that the air going through it generates static electricity and hold dust to it. I used to wash it out every month and got a lot of dust out of it for my home.

I want to use it in my shop air filter.

Does anyone with HVAC knowledge or any knowledge (I am in short supply) have any input?

Thanks much,

Your best bet may be to see if your library has or can locate from another library a book on dust collection. I find Sandor Nagyszalanczy on Wood Dust Control helpful. Because of the explosive content of any form of dust, liability becomes an issue.
