I have a Granger 12" fan with a 3hp. Dayton motor, I don't know where they were actually manufactured. The Cyclone is a 15yo. Oneida, i think it was made in USA and the filters are Wynn.
I have a 2HP 3PH Cincinnati blower that came from a Model 200SDoes anyone own and use either a WoodMaster or Cincinnati Fan dust collection blower? If so, please share your experience.
That's called a volute casing and it develops pressure in the wide part instead of the narrow part interestingly enough. In the last picture with the impeller sitting on the casing the impeller would have to turn counterclockwise to work. Sometimes they are marked for rotation but not always.I have a 2HP 3PH Cincinnati blower that came from a Model 200S
I'm currently working on setting up a cyclone dust collector with the blower section.
I don't really have much experience with it yet, But I can say the blower unit seems to be made good!
I did test run it with just a short 6" dia. section of duct-work & it seemed to have a lot of power!
It was fairly loud without any filter and the exhaust actually blew a few items off a shelf that was about 8 feet away.
The impeller is a nice solid cast aluminum piece which looks to have been machined & balanced from the back side.
The blower housing is pretty heavy gauge metal & it has a curved outer design which I would imagine helps with the air flow.
metal hitting the impeller may generate/cause sparks that could start a delayed sawdust fire....One Quick suggestion is to be sure to set it up to suck out of the cyclone and blow into the filter. I set up my first shop where the fan sucked straight out of the duct and blew into the cyclone. If I accidentally sucked up a nail or screw or rag, or can of 3&1 oil, I could hear it hit the fan. Not good, by sucking through the cyclone any thing other than chips drops out before the air gets to the fan impeller thus saving you gray hair as to what might be hitting the impeller.
Yeah that's one thing sort of odd with the Cincinnati models!In the last picture with the impeller sitting on the casing the impeller would have to turn counterclockwise to work.
I got it from Craigslist a few years ago for $100!How did you come to own it?
