Donaldson now offers a snap-in pleated bag filter for its Torit RF Baghouse dust collector, which is widely used in applications with large volumes of abrasive dust. The snap-in option is already available on the company’s Modular Baghouse. The snap-in option provides tool-free filter installation. Combined with the sturdy pleated filters, snap-in installation can reduce labor and downtime costs by up to 50 percent compared with standard felt bags and cages. Pleated filter bags are often recommended where facilities report premature wear in their felt bags. Using pleated bags can prevent problems and save cost. Purchasing pleated bag filters in a new RF dust collector may require fewer filters, another potential savings.
