Turn your shop vacuum into a 2-stage dust extractor with the Dust Right® Separator! You don't have to spend a fortune to enjoy a cleaner, safer work environment.

Overview

The created vortex effect collects dust and debris longer, without losing suction caused by prematurely clogged filters on any vacuum. 10-gallon translucent bucket is conveniently easy to empty. Holds twice the capacity of competitors' products and is easy to see when it's full.

When used with most power tools and shop vacuums, the Dust Right® Separator captures sawdust, wood chips, and other debris before it enters your vacuum, preventing the loss of suction power caused by a clogged vacuum filter. The five-caster base makes it exceptionally stable and easy to maneuver around the shop. Plus, hoses connect inside the in/out ports, preventing unintentional disconnections. Includes a 36" flexform hose that connects the Dust Right® Separator to any vacuum with a standard 2-1/4" ID inlet port.

  • The Dust Right® Separator creates a cyclonic air flow that causes most wood dust particles and other materials that are heavier than air to separate, preventing them from being passed to the vacuum.
  • Not intended for fine airborne dust such as drywall dust.
  • Maximum performance can be expected when using the Dust Right® Separator in woodworking or general shop cleaning applications.
  • Shop vac not included

Just what I needed

Dragonheart Posted August 21, 2014
First I was surprised when the separator arrived in such a small box, but the two piece canister assembled quickly with little effort and the only tool need was a hammer to set the 5 casters. The assembled unit is approximately 17" in diameter and approximately 24" high. It came with a short expanding flexible hose (about 3') with 2 standard twist in fittings to connect it to your vacuum. If you are using a Shop Vac, as you may already know, the vacuum fitting is non-standard so you will have to remove that fitting and connect it to one end of the hose instead of the supplied fitting. After assembly just attach the vacuum hoses and go. Vacuum air is first pulled into the separator creating a swirling action depositing the debris into the separator's canister then the air, minus the debris, is pulled into the vacuum as usual. I was impressed as the separator seems to catch just about everything, saving costly filter replacement and keeping strong vacuum suction. It is small enough that it doesn't take up a lot of floor space, but holds a good quantity of debris. My only complaint is minor, which I will remedy, is there are no handles on the separator, making it more difficult to lift and also to hold when removing the lid, as the casters work great and it rolls easily. I bought my separator on sale for $50, which doesn't take long to repay in filter replacement and dust bags.

Great product

This is a great product. I cleaned my filter on my shop vac before I hook it up. I have run the shop vac with the separator for a week everyday and I check the filter this morning and nothing was on it. The separator was 1/4 full. This is great your filter stays clean. It keeps you power at full vacuum strength. Great price well worth it.

Does what it says

Keith Posted April 7, 2014
Does a great job pre-separating the debris before it hits the shop vacuum. I've probably gone though a dozen dumps without having to swap my filter bag. There are several advantages:
1. Saves on buying replacement Shop Vac filter bags
2. If you accidentally suck up something you didn't mean to, it's easy to find without having to rip open a bag.
