Chementator: Smaller baghouses  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Last month, Donaldson Torit (Minneapolis, Minn.; www.donaldson.com) launched the Torit PowerCore dust collectors, which are up to 50% smaller than traditional baghouses. An extension of the firm’s patented PowerCore technology that has been proven in engine filtration, the new dust collectors have undergone field tests in wood-, grain-, cement- and plastics-manufacturing operations for more than a year. Measuring just 7-in. tall, one PowerCore filter pack replaces six traditional 8-ft long fabric bags. Instead of hours or days needed for removing cumbersome and dirty bags, PowerCore filter packs are removed from the clean side of the collector with one hand in minutes without using tools, says the firm. Independent laboratory tests, using U.S. Environmental Protection Agency PM-2.5 standards, show that PowerCore filter packs provide 78% fewer emissions than traditional bags, says Donaldson.   Click here for a full pdf version of the Chementator Section
