The iFlux|5 Elite uses an appropriate filter arrangement with 286 square feet of surface area – double that of a typical 5HP collector. To do this, we used a smaller diameter bag, and a lot more of them. This arrangement maximizes the amount of surface area possible which is vital to adequate airflow through the collector. Keeping these filters clean was addressed in the design.
The 12” inlet has a net airflow of 3991CFM with a static pressure of 5”wc. A typical CNC Router needs a minimum requirement of 1500CFM, while a typical 37” wide belt sander would call for a minimum 2000CFM. This makes the iFlux 5 a great fit for a CNC Router based cabinet shop that would be running several tools at once.
With fine dust, the key is to have a large filter surface area and to keep those filters clean. The smaller tube filter design of the iFlux|5 Elite are designed for the fine dust to cake on and the inner side of the filters and fall down into the bin as the mass grows. The filter surface area of the iFlux |5 Elite is 286 square feet. A typical 5HP dust collector has a surface area of 150 square feet. This increase in filter area translates to a large increase in airflow, making the iFlux an ideal machine for fine dust applications.
The waste bins are easier to change than the kitchen garbage. Deactivate the air tight seal by pulling up the release bar and roll out the bin. The positive pressure design means there is no need for a bag hold down system like in multi-stage system. The wheels swivel 360 degrees and are mounted on a sturdy base to ensure they work in your shop for many many years.
The i|flux 5 Elite fine dust collector displays an amperage read out on the control panel. This allows the user to monitor the efficiency of the motor. A high frequency remote is also included standard so that the operator can turn the machine on and off with a 60 meter range.
There are several NFPA standards in place to ensure the proper installation and use of a dust collector. For woodworkers, the standard is NFPA 664: Standard for the Prevention of Fires and Explosions in Wood Processing and Woodworking Facilities. The i|Flux 5 Elite complies directly with this standard. In addition, the i|Flux is fitted with a phase controller and TEFC motor for added electrical safety.
