Pentz EF5

Our new Clearvue Cyclones Pentz EF5 Cyclone offers all of the performance benefits of our CV1800 and CVMAX systems, with the added advantage of an all-metal construction. It's the only metal cyclone dust collection system on the market designed and authorized by Bill Pentz.

Our Pentz EF5 system is taking dust collection to the next level. Manufactured from 16 gauge rolled steel, fully seam welded and powder-coated for a long-lasting, durable finish. A great choice for commercial operations and home hobbyists alike- these units will stand up to the most abrasive of applications, including sandblasting media, rock grinding and more.

Features include:

  • A new quick clamp assembly makes installation a breeze and allows for easy cleaning of the cyclone interior.
  • 600 square feet of filter media with an efficiency rating of up to 99.999% at 0.5 microns - the highest square footage of filter media available on the market.
  • Can be sized for either 6” or 8” ducting— great for both home hobbyists and larger shops running multiple tools.
  • Compatible with a variety of ducting types, including Nordfab Quick Fit Ducting, spiral pipe and more.
  • Choice between wall mount or stand.
  • 12 different intake/exhaust configurations make this system fully adaptable to the specifics of your shop.
