Flyash vacuum

Flyash vacuum

PostBy: Carbondale On: Wed Mar 06, 2013 5:27 pm

Hi Guys,

Since the flyash is so fine it goes right through my shop vac filter. I tried putting the vacuum outside with an extended hose. Having the extended hose causes an awful whine that is unbearable.

Are there any tricks to the trade for vacuuming without making a mess?


Thanks

The bags for drywall dust work very well and have large capacity. Mine last a few years.

I just use a shop vac with a HEPA filter used for drywall. No dust unti I empty it. Use a mask gogles and compressed air to clean the filter. Watch the wind direction! I also use it to get the last bit of coal out of the hopper at the end of the season.

You mean ... an awful whine like this??

:lol:

In order to make that go away, all you need to do is remove the hard plastic end (on the suction end - the end you stick in the dirt), and tape the small hose to a larger hose, if your vac is equipped. It's quiet as a mouse after that. ;)

Oh, and the small hose HAS to be VACUUM hose - not pool hose. ;) ;)

Home Depot sells teflon coated filters for the Rigid brand shop vac. They work. When they plug up, take them outside and banged the dirt out. The filter looks and works like new. And no dust gets past them. The filters are not Rigid brand, so I am sure whoever is making them also makes them for other brands.
