Thanks so much for the suggestion. Can you pass the phone number on? I would appreciate it.I called them to place my order and the nice woman who talked to me discussed the different filters and their advantages. I'd recommend giving them a call and talking about your needs and which would best suit your situation.
Same thing they told me except. You really don't want to wash the filter unless you have to. Just clean it with air while its installed.I called them, and talked directly with Mr. Wynn. We talked about the sorts of projects I do, and after talking it over, we opted for the 35A Spun Bond poly filter. The big advantage for me was that the spun bond is the only one that is washable. The nano fiber provides slightly better filtration, but costs more, and it is not washable.
I get the feeling you have a stutter for some reason...Same thing they told me except. You really don't want to wash the filter unless you have to. Just clean it with air while its installed.
The paper filter east expensive should sat a long time but I didn't trust it.
The Spun Bond filter just a little more is washable as stated and is considered a lifetime filter.
The Nano Fiber highest priced. Will filter slightly better .5 micron vs 1 micron but would have a tendency to clog and is not washable are easily cleaned.
How often the filter builds up dust is going to be function of how well your system is designed. Do you have a Thein baffle / cyclone or other separator? It's going to depend on a bunch of factors.How often does the nano filter clog? What is the performance drop and how do you unclog it?
Well if your not using a thein baffle or cyclone your wasting your money anyway. you want to get the dust out before the filter if possible. I was told by Wynn that the nano fiber would not be the best for woodworking needs. If they are selling me on a less expensive filter I have to think they are trust worthy.How often does the nano filter clog? What is the performance drop and how do you unclog it?
I'm not sure what your option are then.I tried to order a filter from Wynn, but the only way to pay is by giving them credit card number and security code. Not sure how it is in US, but here in Norway I'm not allowed to give my security number to anyone. They dont accept paypal. Are there ant other filters close to Wynn compering performance and price?
I just odered a Wynn filter for my dust collector and I asked that very question. The answer I got was that when you notice a little slow down in the operation of you DC then just blow it out with your air compressor. How often would depend on how often you use it and the material your using etc.Anyone knows what's the lifetime and cleaning frequency of these filters? I'm just a weekend woodworker with no expirence with such filters and wonder what I should expect. I plan to buy a 2HP DC and add a nano filter. Will probably run without a cyclone due to limited space. For cleaning whould it be enough to just blow the filter with the exhaust from a vac or is compressed air needed?
Your Thein looks like mine. My shop is also in the lower level of our home. The conversation you had with the woman sounds like the same one I had with her. I got the same filter you did. Supposed to ship the first of the week.I had a 15 minute conversation with the woman who answered the phone at Wynn. She asked me a few questions. Her recommendation was to go with a nano filter as they offer the highest level of filtration. The reason being that my shop is then unfinished half of the basement of our house. The other half is my children's playroom. As I want to keep as much dust out of their lungs as possible, she recommended the nano filter.
I have now been using the Wynn filter on my HFDC for about 6 months. With a Thein baffle and 5" dut I find that the system does a good job of capturing dust and chips when I am working. (I have a thread on here detailing the construction of my system.) Using the HFDC with just the filter bag was not acceptable as I could see dust hanging in the air after using one of my tools. There's no evidence of that when using the DC now.
