Drywall Dust Damaging to Vacuum?

Will drywall dust damage the Turbo III motor? Is there a separate path for dust that bypasses the motor as on some other expensive vacuums? I was reading a review on Amazon.com that claimed fine drywall dust can be harmfull to the vacuum. I have been using the 1 micron filter with paper bag. Thanks.

Safe way to vacuum drywall dust



SAVE THAT VAC

One of the hardest things on a shop vac is drywall dust. It is so fine that it gets through the regular filter and destroys bearings/bushings and ruins the motor. Just the other day, a friend commented that he had to get a longer hose as his vac was blowing out a lot of drywall dust because the filter was slipping down!

High performance filters are available at most hardwares and box stores. They resemble the paperbag filters in carpet vacuums and catch the drywall dust so that the bag can just be thrown away when done. The bag is U-shaped to install in the shop vac and have clearance around the regular cartridge filter. The inlet has a rubber seal that pushes around the inlet on the inside of the tank. Just run the vac normally but spare it and your lungs!!!

How do I vacuum drywall dust without it blowing out the other side


Hi, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum,

When vacuuming drywall be mindful of your surroundings. If there is a noticeable spot on your vacuum that sends dirt and debris flying out then take a bag and wrap it (loosely) around the part to prevent a further mess and catch anything that may come out. Also, remember your vacuums attachments are your friends. Hoses will make this kind of mess much easier to clean up.

Be sure not to let the drywall sit in your vacuum. This can cause a lot of problems further down the line, especially for your filters. If you're looking for any replacements parts feel free to use the offer below.

Rainbow e series shooting out dust


Did you place water in the water pan? Are you picking up drywall dust, baby powder, wood ash, etc.? This type of material is difficult to be trapped by water.

Was vacuuming sheetrock (drywall) dust and the water boiled over and shut off the vacuum. Any hope for it?


The water boiling could indicate the motor getting too hot. Remove the seperator and clean it with a wire brush. Then wipe out the inside to get the dust out. Let it sit a while then try it. Chris

I have a fein turbo III and I think it got some dust in the motor and now it wounds like it is going to blow up when I turn it on. Is there anything that I can do?


Best bet is try to access the motor and disassemble if possible. There will be fine fine dust in the fans causing eventual wear and bushings or bearings as well as the carbon brushes. To clean it properly all must be dismantled. Any fine dust on the armature should be cleaned with forced air or suction and a soft brush

There are no known vacum bags for a model wd06350 vac


This type of vacuum does not use a bag. If you are worried about clogging the filter cartridge try using a paper filter for a shop-vac. They are relatively cheap and are available at most hardware and department stores. These are made to simply wrap around the big cartridge. A rubber band will hold it in place.

Troubleshooting


Plug the hose into the other side of the unit. One end pushes air and the other side draws in the air. Now drywall dust will clog your filter quickly. Clean the filter often. Do not clean dust without the filter. It will get all over everything!
