Questions & Answers

How should dust be removed from the filter? Can the filter be washed?

Asked by awilhite October 26, 2020
1
Answer

Hello awilhite, First, we recommend that you clean your filter outside. Simply remove the filter and tap it on the inside of the drum or a trash can to knock any debris loose. You can also use a soft-bristled brush and sweep the particles off the pleats or use an air compressor or blower to blow out the debris. If you desire, the filter may also be washed. Run water through the filter from a hose or spigot. You will need to make sure that the water pressure is not too strong as it may tear or damage the filter. You will need to allow the filter to dry out before using it to pick up debris. Remember to check the filter for holes or tears – holes or tears could cause damage to the power head of your vac, and void your warranty. If you have any damage to your filter or want to optimize the performance of your vac, we recommend that you replace your filter on a regular basis. If you have further questions or concerns, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

(What's this)
This HEPA filter and dust bag kit is a great solution for a cleaner work environment. Suction with my Ridgid 16 gallon vac is still great even with the extra filtration. Installation was easy, and the bags seal on the inlet port well. The cyclonic dust bags help the filter to last longer, and hold lots of debris too. They seem much more efficient than the typical U-shaped dust bags I've used with my vacuum before.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The OSHA Compatible Kit with (1) HEPA-Media Filter and (2) Cyclonic Pre-Separator Dust Bags is a great addition to your shop vac. I was going to be starting a project that involved a lot of joint compound sanding which generates a lot of fine dust. a typical shop vac ends up not being able to filter the dust and exhausting it back into the room.I installed the bag and then the new filter which only took a few moments. I was able to vacuum up a lot of super fine dust without any of it reentering in the room. It is great a filtering super fine particles.Its a great addition and I plan on using it for many projects that previously I could not use the shop vac for. Only negative is the price.

(What's this)
Dust has long been recognised and acknowledged as a danger to health and now huge improvements to filtration methods and materials are seriously reducing risks to operators and their health. This kit comprises one 5-layer allergen filter and 2 premium cyclonic dust bags. Used together they are good enough to remove 99.97% of all 0.3 micron particles, and larger, from the air. The kit is compatible with many Ridgid Wet/Dry vacuums – check the specifications or the box for a complete list. The kit is quick and easy to install taking less than 90 seconds – see video. After unlocking the top part of the vac’ and turning it over; pull the old filter out carefully to avoid redistributing all the attached dust and set aside. Push the new filter into place making sure it is properly seated. Then fit the bag over the dust inlet. I find pushing the cardboard and rubber seal beyond the seating position and then bringing it back to line up between the ridges helps to prevent strain on the seal. Carefully tuck the remainder of the bag in and replace the top, locking it down and the job is complete!

Used it for drywall dust extraction and I swear not one dust particle came out of the vacuum outlet. After using two bags, the filter barely had any dust on it. Highly recommend when working with fine dust
