Air Cleaner

Listing #67   Listed on: 11/17/2011

This is an air cleaner I built from a salvaged furnace blower.

It pulls the air through two sets of two filters. It picks up quite a bit of dust and with the blower pointed up helps circulate warm air from the ceiling in the winter.

Nice air cleaner. I had one like that in a previous shop. I wired the motor to a 3 speed switch and on high it would quickly clear the air.

This cleaner has a two speed motor. I leave it on low most of the time but if I stir up a lot of dust I kick it into high and it cleans the room pretty quick. Now if there were an easy way to clean the filters.

Use washable filters ,premade or out of hogshair . At your local HVAC supplier.

curious, is that motor totally enclosed ? If not does it get clogged with the finest dust , if not the filters are doing a very good job. If it does, it's a fire hazard.
