    That is your first mistake, 99.99% of DE information on YT is wrong, misleading and downright dangerous to health if you choose to believe but in the end it is your choice and no one else's.

    I have a 10 year history selling maybe a hundred or more Powtran VFD's and have had maybe two or three failures over that time and 99.9% of Clearvues sold in Oz which is getting towards a 1000 units...

    Don't buy any less than a 15" impeller & forget horse power ratings... they mean damn all in the great big scheme of things.

    Mine gets it all. I would not buy any DE with less than a 14" impeller but 15" is better and I would not buy a single phase machine as a 3 phase machine run through a VFD is a far more flexible and...

    I use a big planer (straight knife) with a Clearvue and we sometimes have to change the 200 litre bins every 15 minutes. We can do it under one minute now and I am thinking of starting a competition...

    No matter how the machine is made if the DE is not up to the job it will leave chips behind so a good DE is the first problem to be addressed. My Clearvue never leaves any chips behind when I am...

    Phil. a couple of questions
