    Finally Completed Dust Collector Install!

    I finally completed the installation of the Grizzly G0548Z 2hp Dust Collector. It was quit a chore. I ran all the ducts as you saw before and I now have the Twin Trashcan Cyclone Separator. Everything seems to be working like a charm and I am very happy with the outcome. Just need to wire for Static electricity.

    Your ducting looks good, but I think you will loose a lot of CFM with the trash can seperator

    When you upgrade to a cyclone, your well done duct work will really pay off

    I doubt you're losing much, if any, air volume from the separator, but one small improvement might be made by turning your DC 90°. That way, you'll eliminate one of the 90° bends in the flex hose going from the separator to the DC. It'll give the air a straighter, smoother path.

    Darren, It is just the standard Trashcan Separator that Phil Thien shows on his site. The only thing I did was cut the bottom out of the top can and then fabricate a holder to set on the bottom of the top can and hold into the bottom can. I used 6" Fittings in the top is the reason for the extra can to catch the dust in. Next time I break it down to empty it I will get you some pictures.

    The cabinet might be just in the way.

    Gary,
    Does it have the plywood baffle like Phil uses on his smaller collector, or is it just an open cylinder? Just curious.

    It has the baffle in it Jim. That's why I cut the bottom out and put another can under it. Gives me a little capacity.

    I am thinking about moving the cabinet so I can shift the dust collector around and get a straight shot into the fan.
