With that much dust don't trust the Air Filters are still good. We don't have the Cyclone type air filters on our Diesel Pushers like logging, dump trucks and other HD Construction trucks where they spin out the majority of the dust. Even my Kubota compact tractor has a cyclone filter and after that much dust I replace it on general principles.
Engine Air Filter assembly: disassemble and inspect for mis-aligned assembly, replace the air filter cartridge and reassemble.
Air Compressor filter assembly: I can't remember it's configuration, but if it has a replaceable filter cartridge--replace it.
