Parks and Parks .com appears to have an answer for easy disposal.

Of course, on my little ShopVac ClearVue MiniCyclone, why wouldn't a trash bag in the can wouldn't work? I'm gonna try that.

This is a very good idea and I followed the link off Ed's site.

It does work, Bruce.  I put one on my Dust Deputy, and it works fine.  I tested it out and looked again to make sure the bag was not disturbed by the air flow, and it will be great when time to empty comes.

The bin at the bottom should not have any air flow.  This is where the dust is to settle out.  Hence, as in the ClearVue cyclone they warn not to have any leaks in this area as this would draw the fines back up the center of the cyclone into the fan/Shop-Vac.


The trash bag is a great idea - IF - you make the seal with the lid.

Guys, I'm thinking that the bag has to be held down into the bottom of the container with either mechanical means or vacuum on the outside of the bag. This is to prevent the bag from being sucked up into the cyclone.
I recall someone offering a small vacuum pump for this purpose.   Seems like someone else offered a wire frame to drop down into the container to hold the bag against the bottom and sides of the container.
Looks like the Parks&Parks shown above has a rather unique way of doing it in that the bag actually goes on the outside of the "barrel". Somebody was thinking.

looks more like the barrel is really just a cylinder and has no bottom Nelson, thus it rests on the wheely bottom inside a flange, then when full, you just pull the cylinder up and out, and there is the bag all full !!!

I think Steve is right.  There is no air-flow in the barrel, at least there isn't if you have a good seal around the top.  All of the air flow stays in the cyclone part of the unit.  The barrel is just a place for things to fall after they spin out of the air flow.

If the can is sealed all the way around and the top makes a good seal with the can with the bag sandwiched between, then, it should not be sucked up into the cyclone.  A wire frame inside the bag with a good seal of the bag and cyclone should also work.  The can/bag will be at a negative pressure and will suck the bag up into the cyclone if air can infiltrate between the can and the bag.

I bet suction stops pretty quick when that happens!
