Recommended Posts

Any one fitted a 50mm Cyclonic inlet to a Numatic 900

My 50mm inlet has just arrived,next step cutting the hole that alone looks scary.

Looks like at tear drop shape is needs cutting in the tank.one chance only me thinks.

Any advise would be great.not sure the best tool to cut the tank yet,

When i did it, i called Numatic and they sent me a template to use. Or if you have the rubber gasket, you could trace the shape from that

Thanks Daniel,that's exactly what I did in the end,

a nice guy at Numatic I spoke to used to fit them every day,he very kindly send me a gasket and template all the correct fittings.turned up Christmas Eve.

Happy days.

 

Gripatank poles maybe ordered after the holidays can't decide to be honest

anyone can recommend any better cheaper ones?

 

Was tempted with a set of the light weight Aro space alloy ones from Lee, but I think they are still heavy compard to full carbon poles I don't fancy a hernia.

You can get a 50mm side inlet casting from Spinaclean. You will need to remove your old inlet and cut your drum to put it on. Game changer when you do. They will also sell you the hose and very good poles etc if you want, cheaper versions available elsewhere though

I used tin snips to cut the stainless drum.  Was quite hard but got a good seal

I used my battery grinder to widen the hole. Then bolted on the spinaclean industrial inlet with clear ct1 as the washer. Happy days, never had a blockage but I bought their 10m hose and cuffs to go with it.
