JET® has expanded its line of shop dust management options with the launch of three new dust collectors. They feature two-stage cyclonic design, direct-mounted filters, remote control and other attributes that bring a higher level of woodworking efficiency.
The three single-phase machine options include a 1-1/2hp version wired for 115 volts (model 717515) that develops 1,259 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air movement. There’s also model 717520, which has a 2hp motor wired for 230 volts and draws 1,538 CFM. Model 717530K with a 3hp motor, draws 1,963 CFM and is also wired for 230 volts. The 1-1/2- and 2hp machines each have two 4-in. dust port hookups, while the largest machine has three 4-in. ports.
JET reports that, as part of the new design, the direct mounting of the filter to the cyclone chamber on these collectors eliminates inefficiencies that result from connecting the filter with bent, corrugated flex hosing. The filters are made of pleated material that captures even the smallest particles down to one micron and below. When needed, the filter can be manually cleaned by using the integrated double paddle system.
The large, steel collection drums on these Cyclones feature quick-release levers that raise or lower the drum lid, plus independent swivel casters that enable the drum to be rolled clear for easier emptying. A viewing window on the side helps you monitor the drum’s fill level. Drum volumes are 20 gallons for model 717515, 30 gallons for model 717520 and 66 gallons for model 717530K.
All three JET Cyclone Dust Collectors include a radio frequency remote control that turns on the dust collection system from a distance of up to 50 feet. Remote timer settings (2 HP and 3 HP models only) allow the system to run for two, four, six or eight hours before automatically shutting down.
Each unit is mounted on swivel casters for full mobility.
Prices for JET’s new Cyclone Dust Collectors are $1,049.99 (1-1/2hp), $1,399.99 (2hp) and $1,759.99 (3hp). They are available now through JET dealers and are backed by the company’s Red Assurance 5-year warranty. Learn more, and watch a video of the Cyclones in action, by clicking here.
