Donaldson RP baghouse collector to cut the dust at mining operations

Donaldson is tackling mining’s dust problem, with the Donaldson Torit® Rugged Pleat (RP) baghouse industrial dust collector.

A manufacturer of innovative filtration systems and parts, Donaldson said the collector is designed to capture heavy and abrasive dust inherent to mining, woodworking, grain processing and other industries.

The new RP baghouse collector features Donaldson’s SuperSep™ inlet, which pre-separates up to 97% of the dust before it hits the filters (pictured), and the PerfectPulse™ cleaning system, which focuses cleaning energy directly over the filters, supporting long life.

With its new Ultra-Web® Spunbond filters, the collector is capable of providing up to 94% fewer emissions compared with baghouses equipped with standard 16-oz singed polyester bags. This makes the collect ideal for heavily regulated industries and operations that recirculate conditioned air in their facilities, Donaldson said.

“The Rugged Pleat baghouse collector offers unrivaled performance and efficiency,” Joe Kiolbasa, Product Manager in the Industrial Air Filtration division of Donaldson, said. “This new technology will help facility managers tackle air quality and occupational health and safety issues, while providing a lower total cost of ownership over the life of the collector.”

The new RP baghouse dust collector uses 44% fewer filters than traditional baghouse collectors, resulting in a 72% reduction in change-out times, according to the company. In keeping with Donaldson’s commitment to providing comprehensive filtration solutions, the RP baghouse includes the iCue™ connected filtration monitoring service, which allows customers to remotely monitor, manage, and optimise the operation of the dust collector.
