Compact Dust Collector Simplifies Maintenance

Industry: Limestone Quarry

Challenge: De-dusting of a crusher of calcium carbonate

Challenge

Normally the dust collector needs to be built together with an access platform to be able to service the dust collector. Donaldson offered a new PowerCore® technology, a more compact solution. Due to a smaller footprint and less space of the dust collector an additional access platform was not needed anymore.

The company A2C trusted our new technology and installed a PowerCore CPV8 dust collector. The unit is equipped with PowerCore filter packs with Ultra-Web® technology and provides higher efficiency with less emissions and an improved filtration performance.

Conclusion

The pressure drop is stabilized to 120 mm / 4.7 in. CE in 6 month of operation. The CPV 8 filter allows the correct operation of the crusher while ensuring easy maintenance.
