I am sending this to you so you know what I have posted (I have put it nowhere but on this forum) and so you can delete it if you feel you need to. Also so you may take a look at the issue and figure out what that minimum distance really is, and change your instructions to include it. I expect most people, even with a short distance, don't have the problems we do because they use big bins that they don't get full, or they just don't use their systems enough to generate much dust. We are probably the worst case senario for amount of fine dust and short connection space, so we see the problem.
Just thought I needed to connect with the new owners of Clear Vue. Setting this thing up cost us $10,000 plus because we had to expand our shop to make room for it. It was definitely worth it and we would never go back. But it still isn't perfect...
Hello. We are the proud owners of a 2007 model Clear Vue. We have had problems with more dust in the filters than we had expected. We did a lot of experimenting with contact with both Ed and Bill Pentz. I finally posted something about what we figure is really going on here: http://www.clearvuecyclones.com/Bull...=6998#post6998 I haven't said much over the years because I think the Clear Vue is a great product and I didn't want to say anything people might take as negative about it. But I have come to believe that the distance between the bin and the cyclone is crucial for good dust separation. If we had known this to start with, we would have saved ourselves a lot of time, effort, and money (more filters). So I finally have posted this to help others set their system up better from the start.
Your system isn't set up to take a long message, so this is part I.
