Industrial High Efficiency Fan Blower Motor

Dust Cobra Motor Cowl Assembly View

Oneida Air Systems uses only the finest quality motors and impeller blades within our dust collection systems. Combined with the efficiency of the integrated cyclone pre-separator, users can expect a lifetime of peak performance from their Dust Cobra vacuum. The cyclone works to remove up to 99% of material from the incoming air-stream, significantly extending the life of the system by protecting the impeller and reducing motor strain.

The Dust Cobra cyclone’s new single-piece, molded resin construction allows for significantly reduced noise output and improved airflow performance compared to previous steel models. Additionally, Oneida Air’s motors are specifically selected for their low noise pitch to enhance user comfort.

Internal Rapid Pulse Filter Cleaner System

Dust Cobra HEPA Filter Assembly

There are few tasks worse than dealing with a clogged vacuum filter; cleaning them can be messy and time consuming, and it’s often the only way to restore suction.

Now you can clean your filter without disassembling or turning off the vacuum!

With the Dust Cobra’s patented Rapid Pulse Filter Cleaner™, you never have to worry about downtime or dust clouds while cleaning your filter! A few quick taps on the Pulse Bar temporarily reverses the vacuum’s airflow, blowing dust off of the filter and safely into the drum below.

Static Conductive Cyclone Pre-Separator

Dust Cobra Cyclone Inlet View

For over 20 years Oneida Air has been the industry leader in cyclonic dust collection thanks to our patented V-Shape cyclones designs combining maximum particle separation and airflow efficiency. The Dust Cobra’s lightweight, resin cyclone removes up to 99% of airborne dust and debris before it ever reaches the filter!

The cyclone works by using centrifugal force to separate materials heavier than air, depositing them in an easy to empty container beneath the cyclone, while clean air is pulled back up through the “eye” of the vortex. This separation not only allows for mess-free waste disposal but also frees up the filter to work as intended, capturing only the finest particulates and providing hospital-grade, breathable air.

Our Dust Cobra’s patented cyclone is molded from a industrial, static conductive resin. Significantly lighter and quieter than previous steel models, this carbon-infused polymer resin maintains the static grounding pathway – protecting you from harmful static buildup and discharges.

Inlet Size 2.5″ O.D. (2.25″ I.D.)
Inlet Type Integrated Neutral Vane
U.S. Patent #8,377,160

Molded cyclone cannot be used with hot or smoldering materials.
