11 Ways to Get Dust (Before It gets You)

High-Efficiency Filter Bags

Gain airflow and filtration with specially made bags

If your dust collector's filter bag puffs up like a taut balloon, you're probably not getting maximum airflow through your collector. Although many manufacturers offer high-efficiency filter bags (1 to 5 microns) as standard or optional equipment, most don't do anything to optimize airflow. American Fabric Filter custom-makes oversize 1-micron bags that increase airflow by not restricting it. Top bags cost from $120 to $150, and bottom bags from $70 to $85.

Great for airflow, terrible for filtering. Filter bags rely on larger dust particles throttling down hole sizes to decrease the particle size that can escape (essentially until little or no dust actually gets through the bag). If your DC is in another room, a bag like this might be acceptable... Amazing what you learn if you read the manuals
