The Perfect Size

Our CV1700 cyclone systems are ready to vanquish dust and keep your shop air clean.

These systems are the perfect size for small or midsized woodworking shops and offer powerful dust collection for both hobbyists and professionals alike.

“The machine has excellent suction, and everything works perfectly. I have a wood shop about 20×30 and have it hooked up with steel pipe to J/P, tablesaw, and bandsaw. Sanders and CNC will be hooked up soon. Thanks, Clear Vue!”

– Jessica Vinsand

Ready to Invest in Your Health?

Peer-reviewed medical studies show that every exposure to fine dust particle material (PM) created by woodworking causes a measurable loss in respiratory capacity. Some of this loss becomes permanent, with greater health damage associated with higher fine dust exposure levels. [Goldsmith, D. F., & Shy, C. M. (1988). Respiratory health effects from occupational exposure to wood dusts. Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment & Health, 14(1), 1–15.]

The revolutionary design of our cyclone dust collectors – featured in the CV1700 – separates more than 99% of sawdust and chips made by woodworking tools before they reach the filters. Combined with specially designed Wynn nano filters, the CV1700 is 99.999% efficient at removing particles as small as .5 microns. Our system’s filtering capabilities – measured at a MERV 15 rating – is the same level of filtering required in hospitals. [Saran, S., Gurjar, M., Baronia, A., Sivapurapu, V., Ghosh, P. S., Raju, G. M., & Maurya, I. (2020). Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) in intensive care unit. Critical care (London, England)24(1), 194.]

Breathe easier and invest in your health with a CV17000 cyclone dust collector system.

“If you are in the market for a dust collector, this is the one that you should be aiming for. After reading up on Bill Pentz’s website (a must read for a woodworker who wants to live to a ripe old age) I decided I had to use his design. The efficiency of this collector is amazing. It separates so much before ever hitting the filter. You can go for a long time filling and emptying the drum before the filters ever need anything close to a cleaning… It is truly an amazing piece of equipment.”

SKU CV1700-1P-WF Category

Our cyclone bodies are built from heavy gauge 1/8″ thick patented copolyester (PETG) plastic, which includes the best qualities of both acrylic (Plexiglas) and poly carbonate (Lexan). PETG plastic has the toughness and scratch resistance of poly carbonate, is cold forming (can be bent at room temperature to 90 degrees without breaking) and is very impact resistant. Additionally, it has the cost effectiveness of acrylic without being brittle.

Our cyclones are thermo-formed over machined round forms, making them as true to a perfect circle as possible. All seams on our cyclones are of an offset lap type joint, making the inside of the cyclone very smooth thus keeping air turbulence and friction to a minimum.
