Plenum box or Existing Vortex Ring?
I am going to take my existing Jet DC-1200 DC and create a permanent system for my small shop using a super dust deputy cyclone and Wynne filter assembly. There's lots of YouTube videos and sites (Pentz, Oneida) that have great information. The only real question I have left is: Do I build a plenum and line it with carpet to keep noise down and attach the canister filter to it? Or do I use the existing DC Cyclone and make an adapter for the canister filter as has been done may times?
My thought is that the existing DC cyclone may create another vortex to allow more of the "fine" dust to fall out. But not having built one of these systems before before I have no idea if there is an advantage one way or the other.
The plenum will have more volume and slow the air down before it enters the filter (theoretically) and may therefore do a better job of allowing the "fine dust" to settle.
I'm leaning towards the plenum since I can make a large one that will give better noise control but don't want to overlook the real purpose of the system which is dust collection.
TIA, thoughts and guidance are appreciated.
