Industry: Grass Seed
Problem: Having to changeout filter bags too often — every year.
Solution: Donaldson Torit Dura-Life filter bags now perform effectively for two years — twice as long as standard poly bags.
This grass seed processor uses a Donaldson® Torit® bag-style dust collector to clean & recirculate the mill room air.
The maintenance manager said “I changed the old bags every year, regardless of pressure drop. When you [Donaldson] promised twice the life with Dura-Life™, we decided to try it.”
Results? “We have gotten a year and a half life so far and expect it to keep working well until spring, which will be twice as long as the old ones.”
And, as every maintenance manager knows, filter bags that last longer mean less downtime for changing filters and less labor cost for maintenance.
Dura-Life filter bags are economical from an energy-use standpoint, as well. Because this unique filter media keeps most of the collected dust on its surface, the pulse-cleaning is extremely effective and, consequently, is not required as often. Less pulsing...less compressed air needed...less energy used.
