Industrial Dust and Smoke Collection

Field Profiles

1. Abrasive Finishing Booth Application

Application: Abrasive Blasting. Worn Bag House Dust Collector suffered from frequent maintenance, poor duct and fan inlet design along with an under sized hopper outlet. System also had difficulty meeting state emission requirements. This situation resulted in high maintenance cost from labor intensive material discharge, unreliable airflow and short filter life. Use of the new Donaldson/Torit DFO Collector provided constant airflow, from reliable filter efficiency, automatic filter cleaning and increased dust storage capacity via the use of 2- 55 gallon drums. This change improved internal blasting quality, safety for the operator, reduced overall maintenance costs and met emission standards.
