Hey guys I would love some input on the best place to by pc fan filters
I need to filter all the fans on my big machine electronic cabinets
because they keep getting dust in them and the small one even cost alot
so I am basically looking for filters that mount directly to the fan mounting hole pattern
I think i have
But I will agree dryer sheets work quite well.
I would just recommend fixing a dust collection system. I don’t really know if any of filter designed for fine wood dust and restricting airflow in a pic with filters could be a bad thing waiting to happen. With that said you could just pickup some cheap dust masks and place them between the fan and the case.
Hey guys thanks for the responses and Benjamin I have a high quailty dust collection system on the machine
but I find that when I need skim the edge of material the dust collection will not work and really the dust collector is only about 90% in catching all the dust when running at high feedrates over over 400 ipm so there is still a little dust left behind nad then if you are working with other tools in the shop that dont have dust collection the fans will suck that dust in
I had never thought about the dryer sheets? it might be a quick fix for sure I might have to try that
the problem i see with those is unless I want to make a custom case to mount to the fans I will just have to tape them to the control panels which will look like a hack job but I guess if it get the job done right
I find my pc the hardest thing to try and keep the dust out of because its super hard to seal
It took me a minute to find your X-Carve behind that BEHEMOTH. LOL!
Why do you bother with the X-Carve?
The x-carve is a laser machine now lol but its mostly a wood storage rack
Don’t try to seal a cabinet, it’ll never happen. I’ve built cabinets for server equipment in dirty locations that draw air in through a box with a filter and positively pressurized the cabinet forcing air out through any cracks. After 6 months the filter was a medium grey but the interior had barely enough dust on the shelf to draw a finger through.
