Apart from the Drum and Mounting Bracket identified with  *  this is the standard configuration for CVMAX supplied in Australia and New Zealand.

There are other ways to configure the CVMAX, particularly if the height is restricted. Refer to the Installation tips page for more information.

Clearvue Cyclones most powerful unit

All the component parts of the CVMAX can be obtained separately, although this is often the most expensive option. It does however mean that should you damage any part it is replaceable.

The Australian and New Zealand CVMAX supplied as a standard unit include the motor, the motor plate, the 406 mm impeller complete with the impeller housing and taper bearing, the cyclone body and cone assembly the flexible hose to link up with the bin together with all the fastenings to put it together.

Clearvue cyclone bodies are built from heavy gauge 3.2 mm (1/8″) thick patented copolyester (PETG) plastic. This includes the best qualities of both acrylic (Plexiglas) and poly carbonate (Lexan).

PETG plastic has the toughness and scratch resistance of poly carbonate. It is cold forming which means that, at room temperature, it can be bent to 90 degrees without breaking. It is also very impact resistant. Additionally, it has the cost effectiveness of acrylic without being brittle.

Our cyclones are thermo-formed over machined rounded forms, making them as true to a perfect circle as possible. All seams on our cyclones are of an offset lap type joint. This makes the inside of the cyclone very smooth keeping air turbulence and friction to a minimum.

The CVMAX is designed for shops running multiple machines on a regular basis. The inlet requires a minimum of 200 mm (8″) for the main duct that can be split into 150 mm (6″) drop lines to each machine to fully utilize its capacity. We recommend that wherever possible you modify any dust ports on machines that are less than 150 mm (6″) to make them 150 mm. If the ports cannot be enlarged you will see a great benefit from providing more than one collection point. We can supply conversion transitions to take one 150mm down to two 100 mm connection point. This allows you to take the 150 mm extraction duct or flexible hose as close to the machine as possible.

Optional items

Some customers will need to add filters as they may not have access to exhaust the virtually clean air externally.

Most customers will need a VFD (Variable Frequency Device) which allows the unit to work with a single phase 15 amp circuit. This unit also allows flexible speed control and a soft start facility. We recommend that even users who have access to 3 phase power use a 3 phase to 3 phase VFD. This will provide the benefits of flexible speed control and a soft start facility.

Impeller size:406 mm (16 inches)
Motor type:2 pole 3 phase alloy frame 3 Kw
Motor voltage:Can be run directly from 3 phase 415 volts or through a VFD from 230 volts single phase
Motor amperage:When run using an approved VFD maximum draw at start up is 16 amps and about 9 amps whilst running

CVMAX - physical description

Footprint - no filters:610 mm x 540 mm (24 x 21.5 inches)
Footprint - with filters: 1100 mm x 540 mm (35.5 x 21.5 inches)
Height - standard configuration:2440 mm (96 inches) allowing for a bin of about 750 mm
Main duct size:The machine requires a main duct of at least 200 mm if using PVC in Australia the standard is 225 mm
Duct to machine size:From the main duct use 150 mm pipe to as close to the machine as possible then reduce if necessary. You will see a great improvement if you modify your machine ducts to 150 mm
