Description for Fantech DBLT4W

Paintable galvanized metal lint trap for dryer boosting applications. Use when duct length between dryer and booster fan is less than 15 feet (when you position the fan this close to the dryer, it may pull lint from the dryer. At greater distances, lint stays in the dryer and you do not need a trap). Fits 4-inch duct. Features pull out door with view window and removable lint filter for easy cleaning.

My dryer is on an inside wall on the second floor of my house and vents through my roof. The vent flaps on the roof used to get plugged or stuck open from all the lint and I'd have to pull the vent ducting apart about every six months. I installed this lint trap in my attic, now I just run up there and clean out this filter, which catches the lint that used to cause my vent door to stick open. This item is robustly manufactured and worked perfectly in my application. I had to cut about 8" out of my vent duct to install it. Installation took about 1/2 hour.

This product was installed simutaneous with a DBF4XLT boost fan. Although all accessible ductwork was taken down and vacuumed, the boost fan stopped working after one week due to a fine layer of lint on the filter. I see no good reason for the filter screen to provide such a small pass-thru area. I will experiment with my own filter element design. That said, the filter is obviously effective and should demand regular attention.

I bought this lint trap to use with my inline fan and I love it. I would highly recommend this part if you are installing an inline fan to help the fan become more efficient. See my recommendation for the inline fan as well. Great products, cuts drying time to about 25 mins total and saves you money in the long run.

A Little Gem

By Submarine Engineer

Comments about DBLT4W Lint Trap for Dryer Booster, 4" Duct:

I use the DBLT4W Lint Trap with my 4" in-line dryer booster fan model DBF110. This product is "A Little Gem!" I had to replace my old in-line fan because it got clogged up with lint over the years and died. This lint trap catches nearly everything before it enters the fan, which is installed a few feet from it. It is heavy weight & hi quality and should last forever. I highly recommend the DBLT4W and the service at SupplyHouse.com cannot be beat!

A needed but not perfect item

By Dryer Vent Wizard

from Reno NV

Comments about DBLT4W Lint Trap for Dryer Booster, 4" Duct:

I had to use this item as the DBF110 dryer booster fan was only about 8' from the dryer. This went into a large massage business that does a lot of laundry. My only issue is that it seemed hard to push in and pull out and was very easily not put back in all the way.
a more secure method for the lint screen would really help this product be used properly by the end user.

I installed close to my third floor wall-through dryer vent to catch the extra lint that was clogging the outside vent cover. Works just great. And VERY easy to install.

Comments about DBLT4W Lint Trap for Dryer Booster, 4" Duct:

Seems to work as described. It does spew small pieces of lint out of the port hole on the side when I turn on the dryer but I can live with that. I am not sure why it was designed with the hole in the side of the box. I bought this to prevent the long exhaust pipe from getting so clogged. Easy to clean. Made out of metal which is good. I use it with my gas dryer.

I am preparing to install this vent filter on my 30 foot dryer vent with a Fantech booster fan. This should cut down a conderable amount og lint buildup on the fan which makes vibrate. Great warning system, but the way it should work.

It solves the problem of a potential fire hazard as the clothes dryer vents into a crawl space and deposits lint.

  • DBLT4W Lint Trap for Dryer Booster, 4" Duct

    Q:

    Does this unit seal lint and dryer dust from blowing back into the room?

    How does this unit mount to the wall? Are screws included to mount to sheetrock wall.

    I do have an existing lint trap, cheaply made, I am not happy with.

      A:

      The unit does not seal the dust from going onto the wall, I have added 2 clamps to keep it tight. The trap does not fit perfectly between existing walls, its stick out past the sheetrock approximately an inch to inch and a half.

      A:

      It can be mounted but didn't come with any screws and you would have to drill holes in the unit. It is a bit cumbersome but does a goo job. It does trap all of the lint that the dryer misses with a screen that is easily cleaned. I would buy it again.

      Unit works well, prevents lint from leaking into room
      The unit mounts on the vent pipe. No need to fasten to wall if pipe is rigid.
      No hardware is included.

      A:

      Nothing leaks around the unit. The unit is a pass though design meaning a vent pipe is connected to dryer and the other end of that pipe is connected to the trap. Then an additional pipe is connected to the other side of the trap and that pipe is vented outside.
      It does a great job at catching lint but the screen inside the trap will require cleaning every 4-7 loads depending on material being dried, therefore it needs to be placed where you can access it easily.
      It has no screws in the box but you can just screw it to whatever you want. If you are capable of installing the pipe your capable of screwing it to the wall.

    Q:

    1) Does this include the screen?
    2) Do you sell replacement retention clips to attache the door to the box? (long metal prongs)
    3) My unit was made in 2008, it has a knob on the door, not a handle. Is this the same item?

      I can tell you the filter box come's with a filter and fit's a 4" pipe, not
      sure about replacement parts. I installed my unit in November of 2011 and
      nothing has broken on it.

      A:

      The box is 8" deep and would stick out in to the room.
      It leaks a lot of lint and let's too much lint get through it. My roof gets covered. Good luck.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The box is a little over 7" deep and even if some of it sticks out of the wall, it would be a tight fit even in a 2" x 6" wall. So I guess the answer is no. I have mine mounted on the wall and it does help keep the duct from getting dirty for a much longer time.

    Q:

    Will this item work without the fan boost, another words can you use it by itself to catch lint in line between the dryer and the vent out?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      You can use it: it's just a filter that sits in the duct run. But it may not be needed. The trap is designed to capture lint pulled up by fans placed within 15 feet of the dryer. Without a fan in place, there likely wouldn't be much lint making it up there.
