Dewalt has come out with new all-in-one cyclone dust collector separators that look to mirror the stylings of their standard wet/dry vacuums. The Dewalt cyclone dust separators should work with their or any other shop-style vacuum.

Dewalt Cyclone Dust Separator with Stainless Steel Tank

There will be two complete setups – one with a 6 gallon poly tank (shown above), and another with a 10 gallon stainless steel tank.

Both are advertised as being able to separate and capture up to 99.5% of debris from the vacuum airstream.

In addition to the two assemblies, the Dewalt cyclone component will also be available separately.

The cyclone can be used in various types of DIY dust separator constructions. Dewalt says it fits any airtight container.

Dewalt Cyclone Dust Separator with Vacuum How it Works Diagram

The Dewalt dust separators work similarly to other cyclone-based separators. The cyclone knocks the heaviest debris out of the airstream, and the remainder of the fine particulates continue on to the wet/dry vacuum or dust collector. Whatever particles make it to the vacuum are then captured in its tank, filter bag, or other filter.

Since the bulk of the collected material is usually captured by the separator, there is reduced clogging of the vacuum filter, which means suction power is maintained.

If you use a filter bag in your vacuum or dust collector, using a separate can help prolong it usable life, since you’ll be emptying the separator many times before your vacuum filter fills up.

Dewalt Cyclone Dust Separator Features and Specs

We’ve been seeing more and more dust collection separators, and they are generally effective at what they claim to do, which is to reduce the amount of dust and debris that could bog down your shop vacuum or dust vac.

Oneida Dust Deputy Setup

If the design looks similar to you, that’s because the Oneida Dust Deputy ($100 at Amazon) has been on the market for quite some time. They also have DIY cyclone separator components, larger models, and also a setup with a 10 gallon steel tank.

So while new for Dewalt, this is not a new concept.

Oneida Dust Deputy DIY Examples

Dust Deputy cyclones have also been used in very many types of DIY constructions, and the same plans or inspiration can be used for woodworkers, makers, DIYers, or anyone else using to build something for Dewalt’s cyclone.

Regarding as to which brand, model, or design you’re looking at, cyclone separators – and other types of debris-sorting attachments or accessories – typically aim to provide 3 benefits.

They help to eliminate suction loss and also extend your filter’s lifespan by reducing the particulate matter that interacts with your vacuum’s filter. They also simplify waste disposal, especially when your separator holds a greater volume of collected dust and debris than your vacuum.

For instance, if you have a 4 gallon vacuum and a 10 gallon separator, you can clean up more before having to empty out any collection bins.

It’s also worth noting that most cyclones – including Dewalt’s – are capable or dry or wet pickup.

Is this something you could use with your shop vac or dust extractor?
