Thanks Bruce, I might change it more to your sketch if my idea doesn’t work like planned.
I put a 4" pipe in the center to get some air space in the middle going up with the vacuum.
Donated some of my cotton socks for the test, if this filter doesn’t work I will have a way of charcoal activation for my socks. Guarantee to cut down on foot odors.
Ready to go.
I knew I saved this fine ash and char dust for something.
Ran about a quart of ash through, very very fine ash showed in the exit pipe.
The socks and inside the upper bucket show some char dust.
The bottom bucket separator above the nozzle had some char dust. Showing. I think it is getting by the the bottom of the tube . I will seal it down on the next test to the bottom plate.
Cleaned everything up except the socks. Going to run about a gallon of char dust through on this 2# test.
Okay now we are getting somewhere now, still very little very fine dust showed up in the exit pipe.
Socks are getting full of char dust. The socks are not working as good as the towel bags will work, but they are working.
A lot more char dust show up in the bottom bucket and the lower part of the bucket and the trap area.
The course char showed up in the bottom of the bucket and empty out the trap bottom.
Need to wash my socks for the wet test # 3.
