Cyclonic Centrifugal Separator

Introduction: Cyclonic Centrifugal Separator

About: Hopefully a hobbyist!

I’ve made this separator to prevent sawdust from going towards hoover. The separator does its job and collects anything heavier than air and keeps them in the tank.

Step 1: Cutting

I've drilled the bowl in order to get the dust inside the tank. And drilled the upper cap from the center and from near the edge, both evenly.

Step 2: Mounting the Pipes

The central pipe is for the hoover and the other one -close to the edge- is for the actual hose.

Step 3: Final Product

It works great. Nothing goes to hoover's bag, everything is collected inside the separator's tank. Also very easy to empty.
