Home / Classic Machines / Dust Collectors / B|Flux
The best looking single stage dust collector to hit the market in years. Sleek design and power to match. No more fumbling with a steel band to mount your lower bag, the B|Flux comes with a patented Snap-Band that makes changing the bag a breeze. Unlike most 1HP units the B|Flux feels solid & has a low dB rating. The horizontal dust chute provides optimum airflow & can swivel 180° to make the 4″ outlet face downwards. The B-flux dust collector can be oriented with the inlet port pointed up or down.

The inlet port size is 8”. It comes with a splitter that fits over the 8” inlet. The splitter has three 4” inlets so that you can connect multiple hoses to the machine. We recommend installing blast gates on each port so that you can control which machine you are collecting from when multiple machines are connected.
Yes. The B|Flux dust collector ship disassembled to avoid damage during shipping and requires assembly prior to use. You can view the assembly video below:
Yes, the inlet port can be pointed up or down. The “dust chute” (upper housing) can be mounted with the port pointed up or down during the initial assembly
Yes. You can empty and reuse the dust collection bags if desired. Replacement bags are available through dealers or on our website. These are sold in a package of 5 bags. The fine dust bag at the bottom of the filter can also be reused.
The “Inlet CFM” is the maximum CFM the Bflux dust collector achieves at the inlet port. The “Shop Setting CFM” number provides a “real world” measurement with dust collection hose connection to the machine and measurements taken downstream.
The B|Flux filter cartridge is a 1 micron filter. The filter cartridge is easy to clean using the included filter cleaning handle. A few quick turns of the handle cleans dust out of the filter pleats so that it is ready for the next use.
The B|Flux dust collector is excellent at collecting dust, chips, and shavings from the source (bandsaw, tablesaw, planer, etc.). This helps keep the dust away from the moving parts of the machines to keep it from becoming airborne. We recommend a dual approach for shops:
The B|Flux dust collector is designed for direct hose connections to individual machines, although many users have
small ducted systems for a few machines. We recommend dust collectors with higher CFM ratings like our Cflux and
Pflux series machines for ducted systems. If you choose to connect multiple machines, you will want to use blast gates to
turn off collection to machines not in use to maximize CFM to the machine currently in use.
Our dust collectors are specifically designed and tested for woodworking dust, chips, and shavings and are designed
to collect from woodworking machines. We have customers who use our dust collectors for many other applications such
as plastics, paper, grinding dust, powder, and a wide range of other materials from various sources or machines. While
our dust collectors may work well for these other applications, we do not have any testing data or connection information
for these other uses. You will need to decide which unit would be best for your needs based on the CFM and how you
intend to connect to your equipment.
No, the B|Flux does not come with a remote control. It has a standard on/off switch located on the motor box. Our C|Flux, P|Flux, T|Flux, and X|Flux machines come with remote control.
Yes, the Bflux can be plugged into aftermarket remote control switches. You will want to size the aftermarket
accessory appropriately for the 1 HP 110 volt motor of the Bflux machine.
The B|Flux dust collector is designed for single machine operation. It works well with Tablesaws, Bandsaws, Jointers,
Planers, Sanders, Router Tables, and more.
The inlet on the B|Flux is a 4” inlet. We recommend using a 4” diameter dust collection hose with this machine. Should you need to connect to machines with smaller outlets like miter saws or similar portable machines, we recommend stepping the 4” hose down with a reducer near the machine being connected to. Users may need to provide “bleed air” when stepping down to smaller sizes. This is accomplished by installing another inlet on a Y fitting that can be opened to introduce additional ambient air into the air-stream when collecting from smaller outlets. This additional air helps to keep up the velocity in the 4” hose and keeps the impeller from starving for airflow when connected to small ports.
