Filter/Clone® Dust Control System was developed by Joe Tipton, Inc. in April 1979.
The first Filter/Clone® cyclonic dust collector was introduced in that year in the form of a 600 cfm total collection system used primarily on small air–track percussion rock drills. That unit was the result of 15 years of experience of the founder, Joe Tipton, in research, design and development of elementary dust collectors for the mining and construction industries.
Utilizing the patented and proven cyclone separation principle with barrier filtration in the vortex of the cyclone, the initial design has evolved into a complete product line of collectors with capacity to 12,000 cfm.
The result is a highly–efficient design which utilizes all of the necessary relationships among volume of air, filter area, horsepower requirements, hose size, pickup and conveyance criteria, and other factors.
In addition, for drilling conditions where chip collection is not required and where space requirements dictate, a line of non–cyclonic baffle type collectors has been developed.

Joe Tipton, Inc. is in a unique position to meet the dust control needs of virtually any rock or rotary drill on the market.
