Where the duct attaches to the inflow and outflow sides there are 45˚ elbows to deflect the dust particles allowing some to settle. There are 2 compartments to separate the larger particles first and finer ones second. The dust leaving the separator is very fine therefore not endangering the impeller blade.

A - two bins ?
B - Also why two different size bins ?
And last but not the least...how efficient is it ?
We can see the pass through hole in the divider is offset...but is it enough to “separate” dust particle ?

All in all…in my opinion, you made a VERY nice fit & finish ...separator box!!
