Donaldson Co. announced a new family of Torit PowerCore dust collectors to meet the specific requirements of applications involving abrasive dust. The new VH series collectors, according to the company, are designed to be smaller and smarter—taking up to 70% less space than other baghouses and cartridge collectors, and reducing labor costs and downtime by time-saving filter change-outs that don’t involve confined spaces. The collectors will handle airflows of 5,000 to 50,000 cfm, using PowerCore filter packs. One PowerCore VH filter pack replaces up to 20 8-ft (2.5-m) baghouse bags and up to three standard, round cartridges. To handle the harsh environment created by abrasive dusts, the PowerCore VH Series features heavy gauge steel and all-welded construction. A single-hopper option and single air inlets/outlets reduce ducting, installation and material handling costs. The VH Series also includes a zero-turn pulse cleaning system, which forces dust directly down into the hopper, decreasing the chance of re-entrainment on adjacent filters.
