I'm about to order replacement bags for my new 30-mike collector (I decided
against the canister). What are your opinions about the benefits of 5-mike
vs. 1-mike bags? Are the finer porosity bags worth the double price?
If they ease your mind, certainly. Two factors, often discussed, are mesh
size - filtration at the primal level, which changes as dust and such is
captured, effectively diminishing the mesh size, and trapping, where the
material is something like felt, offering a multitude of paths, effectively
lowering the velocity in any, allowing the dust to become trapped in a
You'll leak more dust from fittings than you'll push through a bag once the
dust has reduced the mesh size.
Don't believe everything they claim. a cloth bag needs to be pretty big to get
the fine dust. airflow has to be high and the bag kept clean. so this is the
place to go http://www.americanfabricfilter.com/ and get as big of a bag as you
have room for. shake it every day.
