Cyclonic Vacuum Deflector Adapter

This Cyclonic Vacuum Deflector Adapter fits on any Cat 6 Tools’ cyclonic plate or lid.   These adapters, that mount on a flat plate, create a circular rotation of inlet air.

As a result of the unique design, one deflector is used for the suction outlet and ther other for the air inlet.  Because these adapters work synergistically,  they enhance the cyclonic action as each adapter faces in the opposite direction.

These adapters come with #12 mounting screws.  Purchase one adapter (1) as a replacement part or purchase two (2) to make a cyclonic lid.

As a result of engineering design, these adapters do not need a gasket.  The deflector mounting surface is precision and allows for very little suction loss.
