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.

        A needed but not perfect item

              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.

                          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.

                                      Easy to install but have not used it as of today so can not tell you how it works, making the asumption that it will work well.

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

                                            It was easy to install and works great. It is hard to believe how much lint gets past your dryer filter. I have a 35 foot 4 inch vent run and also needed to install a booster fan. I feel safer now knowing the lint is not building up in the vent pipe.

                                                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?

                                                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.
