But, Capacity enough to clean our home shop dust environment.

Main Types Of Dust Collectors

There are two main types of dust collectors in the market.

  1. Single Stage Dust Collector – This is also called bag dust collectors. Its impeller rotate and suck the large particles like wooden chips through it. But, It has no ability to remove small fine dust particles. Bag dust collectors are cheap. This is the only advantage of single stage dust collectors than cyclone one. Ideal for remove large particles.
  2. Two Stage Dust Collector (Cyclone Dust Collector) – This is used two stage devices to remove dust particles. Initially blower create air cyclone inside the funnel shape drum (Called it cyclone). This is separate large and fine dust particles and drop heavy particles to bin downside of the cyclone. Other fine particles goes stage two device to filter. It separate fine dust and air through dust bags.
