Default New dust collector not working very well

Hey guys I just bought a 1250 cfm dust collector and canister filter from Rockler. It sucks great but dust seems to come out of the filter when its on. You can watch the dust in the clear bag strapped at the bottom start swirling and make its way out of the filter. It is not coming out of the bag it's literally through the canister it self. Any thoughts ? Thanks !!

welcome to the forums N/A...
what's the make/model of the DC and micron rating of the canister???

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

check the Rubber gaskets for a tight seal to your collector?

are you using the 30 micron collection bag or a clear plastic one???

This machine has no separate filter the bag catches the chips and the bag is the filter. If there is leakage it will be through the bag, or the hose clamp at the top.
I would put the Dust Devil and dust bin between the fan and the filter .

Could I have subscribed to this thread without posting on it? I had never seen this dust collector set up though it is similar to my portable delta and holtz-her units that have a ''dust bag''

Lyle (just guessing at the name) if you are referring to a cloth bag as the filter then you should know that these bags are rated to a certain micron size. Some as large as 5-7 microns which won't stop fine sawdust at all, chips yes but not so much the finer particles. Cut something like MDF and you'll have plenty of dust floating in the shop. Check the rating of the bag/filter. My CV1800 is rated to .5 micron and captures almost all of the sawdust. Filter Efficiency: 99.999% at .5 micron (MERV 15)
