Based on the original Dust Deputy—the revolutionary wet/dry vacuum accessory that pre-separates 99% of dust and debris from the airstream—the patented Dust Deputy 2.5 cyclone is optimized for today’s larger, more powerful vacuums with 2.5″ diameter hoses to deliver up to two times the airflow of other cyclone and lid-style separators.
Like its predecessor, the new Dust Deputy 2.5’s cyclonic design uses centrifugal force to spin debris out of the airstream and down to the waste container, virtually eliminating clogged filters and suction loss and increasing the lifespan of the vacuum’s filter. At 15.5″ tall, with an inlet and outlet designed to friction fit standard 2.5″ hose cuffs, the anti-static Dust Deputy 2.5 cyclone is ideal for woodworking activities that generate dust at a rapid pace, such as sanding, sawing, jointing, and planing. In addition to wood dust, it excels at collecting other types of dust and debris, including drywall dust, cooled ash, pet hair, water, and more.
“We recognized a need for a larger cyclone to match the more powerful wet/dry vacuums that have become standard over the years,” said Robert Witter, inventor of the Dust Deputy and President of Oneida Air Systems. “By delivering up to double the airflow of smaller cyclones, the Dust Deputy 2.5 more than meets that need.”
It also meets the needs of original Dust Deputy owners wanting to upgrade to the larger version.
“We wanted to make it easy for existing customers to incorporate the new 2.5 cyclone into their setup, so we designed the Dust Deputy 2.5 with the same base and hole pattern as the original Dust Deputy,“ said Witter.
The Dust Deputy Bagger combines the patented Dust Deputy cyclone separator with an innovative wall-mounted bagging system that turns any wet/dry vacuum into a high-capacity, two-stage dust collection system. It’s ideal for any workshop, garage, or other space where wet/dry vacuums are regularly used. Now 20% more efficient with Neutral Vane Technology, the Dust Deputy Bagger’s cyclone removes over 99% of dust and debris from the airstream before it reaches the vacuum—virtually eliminating filter clogging and suction loss and dramatically extending filter life.
The Bagger’s unique design allows the use of standard 4 mil garbage bags instead of traditional dust collection bins. Clear collection bags make it easy to see when the bag needs to be emptied, and the volume of waste collected is limited by the bag size used. When the bag is approximately two-thirds full, simply gather the neck of the bag together, remove it from the Bagger unit, and dispose of it. No other system offers a quick, easy, and mess-free method of wet/dry vacuum waste disposal. In addition, the Dust Deputy Bagger sports a slim installed profile at approximately 12″ wide, 12″ deep, and 50″ high with the bag installed.
The new Super Dust Deputy 4/5 by Oneida Air Systems is a cyclonic separator designed to work with nearly any 1 to 3HP single-stage dust collector. It is the first separator that eliminates the need for right-sized fittings, allowing you the flexibility to change your setup with ease.
Based on the original patented Super Dust Deputy—which connects to a single-stage dust collector and separates 99% of dust and debris from the airstream to eliminate filter clogging and suction loss—the new Super Dust Deputy 4/5 includes two 4″ OD adapters that allow the cyclone’s inlet to connect to 4″ or 5″ hose and the outlet to connect to 4″ or 6″ hose as needed. It can also be connected to ducting with additional adapters.
Made from static dissipative material to prevent static buildup, the 4/5 cyclone measures 14″ wide by 23″ tall and is compatible with all Super Dust Deputy drum kits from Oneida Air Systems. It can also be mounted to any airtight drum or barrel.
