Big shout out to Yellowhammer!! You got my wheels turning the first time and then the second time. Now it is even better than before. The top one relives enormous amount of pressure  but the second one doesnít because itís screen is on the side of the flow but with a little reduction in size on the outlet end it creates enough reduction that the exhaust air really comes out on the second one so now everything just drops out very nice. There is no effect on the suction side

That is a great system!  I love the double outlet idea.  Well done!
YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it wonít roll, its not a log; itís still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, theyíre burned, and you canít fix them.  So donít burn the cookies.

Sawing is fun for the first couple hundred boards.

It looks like you are beginning to build up on the screen, that is going to be the problem, an upturn and self dumping screen? It also looks like you are on the way to making a cyclone. I've got layout methods and specs if you go that direction. Quite similar methods to making a moonshine still  :D

So, if you get tired of woodworking, you can make liquor?

I always figured that you were a man of some flexibility and knew that you were multi-skilled.

Sawing is less work  :).

The book with cyclone layout and all sorts of fan stuff is still in print, cheap too, worth it for the understanding whether you build from it or not;
