Donaldson launches a new range of cartridge dust collectors
Product News Friday, January 27, 2017: Donaldson Filtration Systems (Pty) Ltd
One of the greatest challenges faced by industry is the complex issue of dust control. Donaldson has served various industries for decades, providing highly efficient and economical dust removal systems.
Donaldson, the originator of the cartridge collector, launched their latest development; the Donaldson Torit Downflo® Evolution (DFE) cartridge dust collector in South Africa, 30 years after the first cartridge collector was supplied in Africa. Donaldson has supplied more than 500 cartridge collectors in the past 30 years. The breakthrough performance of the DFE family of cartridge dust collectors is the result of Donaldson’s relentless drive to improve its products and exceed customer expectations.
Donaldson put decades of industry experience to work to produce a new, best-in-class dust collector capable of reducing equipment size and number of required filters by up to 40% compared to a typical cartridge collector. A smaller collector helps lower the initial purchase price, reduces filter replacement costs, and opens up valuable manufacturing floor space. This state of the art collector, coupled with Donaldson’s industry-leading Ultra-Web® nanofiber filtration technology, is truly an intelligent design.
The DFE’s game-changing dust collection performance is achieved through a combination of design features that result in significant customer benefits. One of the main features is the Intelligent Drop Out Zone, where pre-separation of heavy dust particles takes place, resulting in reduction of dust load onto the filter media, lower pressure loss than baffle design used in the industry, and minimal filter element abrasion.
The DFE provides breakthrough cleaning performance, with the new Maxpulse Cleaning System, resulting in improved filtration capacity without sacrificing filter life or taxing compressed air consumption. Typical pulse-jet cleaned dust collectors deliver only a fraction of the compressed air energy to clean the filtration media. The DFE’s proprietary, MaxPulse Cleaning System minimises energy loses by focusing on the cleaning air’s exact path and delivers uniform cleaning energy to all effective filtration media. Significantly higher pulse pressures are recorded and sustained at critical locations along the filtration media profile, up to 27% higher impulse cleaning energy delivered. More uniform cleaning results in more effective filtration media over the life of the filter.
“At Donaldson we remain focused on our core mission, namely; to offer our valued customers cost effective filtration systems that enhance equipment performance and protect the environment,” says Jacques Cato, General Manager of Industrial Air Filtration at Donaldson. “Donaldson is a technology and solutions driven company committed to leading Africa and the world in the design and manufacture of filtration systems offering ease of maintenance and low operating cost ideally suited to our customers’ needs.
In addition to the extensive Donaldson range of bag filter units such as flat bag and tubular bag technology, Donaldson also provides oil and mist collectors units, various specialised extraction and dust control units and a complete range of cartridge filter units.
Donaldson focuses on value added technology, exceptional service and simplified product maintenance to ensure that customers can optimise production through the use of reliable and customised filtration solutions.
