PowerCore® SVU Series

The Donaldson SVU series brings the performance and convenience of the PowerCore® technology to the silo venting market. Built to withstand severe weather conditions, the SVU series is specially designed to vent pneumatically filled storage silos during truck unloading operation.

The Silo Venting Unit will satisfy the need not only for efficiency and reduced maintenance, but also for convenience and workplace safety. You can’t always avoid having your maintenance workers climbing and working on high height silos, but you can control how convenient and safe it is.

Time-consuming and often very dirty maintenance processes, frequently under precarious working conditions, are a thing of the past when using the PowerCore SVU.

Up to 54% shorter compared to conventional silo dust filters.

High quality Stainless steel body with weather protective hood.

No tooling required, no losable parts, and low height of just 532 mm / 21 in.

Pulse Jet cleaning combined with PowerCore technology means extended filter life and service intervals.

Up to 54% Shorter than Traditional Silo Venting Collectors

The SVU is up to 54% shorter than traditional silo venting collectors; its compact and low height design provides easy and safe access to the filter packs. With the Silo Venting Unit, you can save space, reduce maintenance requirements and hazards generated by changing long and dirty filter bags or cartridges on a silo top. While up to 6 bag filters or cartridges have to be moved up and down on conventional silo venting solutions, the SVU only needs 2 lightweight and compact filter packs; changing the PowerCore filter packs can be done easily and safely by just one person with no tools or losable part, in no time.

Difference between Donaldson® PowerCore® SVU Series and a traditional silo venting collector using filter bags or cartridges.
Unlike traditional silo venting solutions, the PowerCore SVU cover remain safely accessible.

The performance, reliability, and ergonomy of the SVU is derived from a combination of advanced filtration technology, unique form factors and high performance reverse jet cleaning to ensure effective dust release and a continuous level of operation for longer. Fewer filters, better cleaning, and shorter maintenance leads to major cost savings over the life of the collector.

High Performance Filter Packs: PowerCore filter packs obround shape, in conjunction with Donaldson proprietary Ultra-Web media, trap more dust on the surface of the media flutes than conventional filter bag materials Surface loading greatly promotes filter cleaning.

At the core of the SVU unique design is PowerCore, the most innovative filtration technology from Donaldson integral to the dramatic downsizing of the PowerCore SVU series. An entirely new approach to dust collectors, the PowerCore filter pack is small, lightweight, and easily handled by one person. Donaldson’s PowerCore technology combined to our well-proven Ultra-Web® advanced nanofiber technology allows more effective filter area to be packaged in a smaller space.

Pneumatic Silo Venting applications typically requiring up to 6 filter bags or cartridges (24 m2 / 258 ft2 ) in the past now only needs 2 PowerCore compact filter packs. With more media packed into a smaller space and a simplified airflow path, PowerCore filter packs provide high performance with a low pressure drop.

Q. How Can the PowerCore SVU Series Be so Much Smaller Than a Traditional Silo Venting Filters?

A. The PowerCore SVU compact design is derived from a combination of advanced filtration technology and unique collector design. One PowerCore filter pack replaces up to six traditional fabric filter bags. We are able to include a large amount of filter media area in the 178 mm / 7 in. filter pack space. With shorter filter packs, the size of the collector can be reduced.
