imageTorit™ Donaldson PowerCore(r) Designed to Replace Typical Baghouse Dust Collectors

PowerCore dust collectors are built with heavy gauge steel and an all-welded design to withstand abrasive dust and harsh environments. Filter abrasion is greatly reduced due to the collector and filter design. Single air inlets/outlets reduce ducting and installation costs. The filtration media is formed into triangular-shaped flutes and housed in individual packets. This package is denser and more compact than traditional filters, yielding a collector 50-70% smaller than its baghouse counterpart. This, coupled with Donaldson's unique Ultra-Web filter media, results in lower pressure drops, higher filtration efficiencies, and longer service life than traditional units. A single packet is equivalent to six or more conventional filter bags, yet is only 7 inches deep. They simply drop into the front of the collector, requiring no tools, no confined space restrictions, and no cages to replace. This unique configuration also allows for a more compact pulse cleaning system, which further reduces the overall height of the collector, while at the same time vastly improving self-cleaning efficiency. Since air flows in through the bottom face of the packet, with negligible airflow through the sides, there is no bridging. PowerCore(r) is available in sizes ranging from 1,200 cfm to 51,000 (VH series) cfm in collector configurations, and from 800 cfm to 6,000 cfm in bin vent.
