DUST COLLECTION: When size matters, smaller is smarter

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota Donaldson Torit has set out to solve the need for better filtration, reduced operational cost, and greater flexibility in bag house dust collection with its new Torit PowerCore dust collectors with PowerCore filter packs. An extension of the company’s patented PowerCore technology, well-proven in engine filtration, Torit PowerCore dust collectors are smaller and smarter than traditional bag house technologies.

After a successful year of field testing, full-scale Torit PowerCore collectors are available in stand-alone and bin vent configurations. Stand-alone Torit PowerCore dust collectors are up to 50% smaller than traditional bag houses. Bin vent models are up to 70% smaller than traditional technology.

PowerCore media technology is integral to the dramatic downsizing of the Torit PowerCore collector. Just under 18 cm tall, one PowerCore filter pack replaces six traditional 2.4-metre-long fabric filter bags. Instead of hours or days to remove cumbersome and dirty traditional filter bags, PowerCore filter packs are removed from the clean side of the collector with one hand in minutes without using tools.

PowerCore filter packs deliver better dust filtration by combining Donaldson Torit’s proven and patented Ultra-Web surface-loading technology with a fluted-media design that allows more media in a small volume. PowerCore filter packs capture both large and small dust particles. The manufacturer says independent lab tests, using EPA PM 2.5 standards, show that PowerCore filter packs with Ultra-Web provide up to 78% fewer emissions than traditional bags, and that translates into cleaner plant air and greater product recovery.
