2016year3month4day  This is an easy-to-build dust separator with a baffle based on J. Phil Thien’s well-known “cyclone” design. It works because the incoming air is forced around the outside wall, where the heavier dust and chips fall through a slot

Pentz Cyclone vs. Thien Separator - Canadian Woodworking

2010year4month27day  The thien separator mimics this but is limited to a little less than one revolution of the container so, certainly, some small particles get to the outlet. The benefit is simple cheap construction and performance somewhere between a separator lid and a true cyclone. The OP original question is about SP loss and it's a valid and important question.

Cyclone vs Thien Baffle vs the Thing You Can Buy That...

2012year6month14day  Think of it is good = trash can lid separator, better = Thien Separator, best = true full scale cyclone. The difference between a Thien separator on a 2HP DC, and a 2HP cyclone, all else being equal is however somewhat minimal, however the difference between a trash can lid separator like a Rockler Vortex, and a Thien separator both rigged to a ...

Cyclone size vs. CFM?

2012year1month8day  Then you need to choose a DC that is able to overcome those losses while maintaining sufficient CFM at the tool. For most tools you need 350-450 CFM for adequate pick-up. Then you need to size the piping to insure the FPM is adequate to keep the dirt suspended. For woodworking that is usually 3500-4000 FPM.

Internal Thein baffle or Top Hat Separator? - jpthien

2014year5month5day  May 03, 2014, 03:25:02 PM. You could of course put a Thien baffle in the DC with, say, a half inch wide slot. This would take out fine dust. AND a top hat before the fan with say a 1 1/2" wide slot to take out the coarse stuff with the decided advantage that the bin is easy to empty. Phils says it is easier to put a baffle in the DC so not too ...

Garbage can cyclone Woodworking Talk

2012year7month28day  Google Thien Cyclone, I have built several, and they work splendidly. The style of separator lid works okay at best, the Thien baffle / cyclone does an excellent job at separation, and keeping the stuff dropped into the dust can where it belongs. I have one based on a 55 gallon drum with 5" side inlet and 5" top outlet.

Building a DIY Dust Separator (Thien Cyclone) - Huttab

Phil Thien made a DIY dust separator design. A lot of guys have put this together, and it gets great reviews. I was able to make a similar separator using only scrap plywood, some dirt cheap PVC and elbows, and a $2 bucket. Total cost was probably in the neighborhood of $20. So far it’s been working great.

2015year1month8day  Tweet. #3. 01-05-2015, 11:55 PM. A narrower slot width in the Thien baffle is supposed to improve separation of finer dust- but with a greater chance of clogging with larger chips. If not too hard, you might try making a new baffle with, say, a 7/8" wide slot, instead of the "standard" 1-1/8" slot.
