Donaldson expands snap-in pleated bag filter line

1 min read

The Torit RF Baghouse dust collector is widely used in grain handling, mining, woodworking, and other industries with large volumes of abrasive dust. Combined with Donaldson's Ultra-Web pleated filters, snap-in installation can reduce labour and downtime costs by up to 50% compared with standard felt bags and cages.

The snap-in option is already available on the company’s Modular Baghouse, another Torit dust collector model widely used in these industries. Donaldson’s Ultra-Web pleated bag filters already provide substantial cost-savings over felt bags. With the combination of Ultra-Web fine fiber media and sturdy spun-bond polyester substrate, the technology traps dust on the surface media, creating a longer filter life, cost savings and cleaner air.

The company says that its pleated bags have more media, so the dust collector can run at a lower air-to-cloth ratio, which exposes each square foot of filtration media to less dust and extends filter life.
