The chemical industry is large and diverse, and while much of it is liquid, dry products and by products are common. Processes such as material handling, screening, mixing, etc frequently produce dust. Donaldson Torit® offers a variety of dust collectors including many construction and filter options to allow a collector selection to fit the diverse chemical industry.
With over 100 years of experience engineering dust collectors and filters, Donaldson Torit is the name you can trust above all others for chemical processing.
Special Process and Material Property Considerations
Donaldson Torit® advanced-technology cartridge dust collectors and a variety of filter media that conquer the challenges of most types of industrial dusts, including pharmaceutical, chemical, grain, bulk/powder, food, metal and others.
The best-in-class Downflo® Evolution (DFE) dust collector is capable of reducing equipment size and number of required filters by up to 40% compared to a typical cartridge collector.
The high performance Downflo® Oval (DFO) family of dust collectors provides up to 25% more filtration capacity than other same-sized cartridge collectors.
Torit® PowerCore® dust collection technology use proprietary Ultra-Web nanofiber technology, which allows for a smaller, more efficient filter, reducing the overall footprint of the dust collector.
Extremely small but powerful package that handles high airflow, challenging particulate, and fits into the smallest places.
We offer a complete line of dependable, rugged baghouse dust collectors including RF, Dalamatic®, IRD, Unimaster® and many others to keep your operation running smoothly.
RF Baghouse dust collectors are designed specifically for the high air volume and heavy dust loading that are common to woodworking, cement, grain, chemical, and food processing applications.
The Dalamatic® dust collector is an automatic reverse-jet fabric filter dust collector. It is most suitable for continuous process applications involving heavy-duty product recovery, or collection of large concentrations of nuisance dust.
Donaldson Torit offers replacement cartridge and bag filters for all types of industrial dust, weld fume and mist dust collectors.
Choose cleaner air with Donaldson Torit® advanced-technology cartridge filter media that conquer the challenges of most types of industrial dusts.
The high filtration efficiency of PowerCore Filter Packs reduces emissions and saves energy, lowering your total cost of ownership.
From Dura-Life™ high performance bags to specialty bags, breathe easier with filter bags for any baghouse dust collector from the worldwide leader in dust collection.
Many products require a finishing process using wet or dry paint spraying techniques. These include the spraying of solvent or water based paints and lacquers, which generate large volumes of overspray. If not extracted, fine paint particulate will contaminate both the work piece and surrounding area, they will escape into the working environment.
The combination of solvent vapours and fine particulate are highly flammable/explosive and can be dangerous to human health.
The handling of the base product requires a high level of cleanliness to guarantee top quality product.
In many cases the material to be handled is the production product; therefore care must be taken to achieve adequate balance of dust control without removing excessive (valuable) product.
Where practical, Donaldson advocates “source collection” designs in sieving applications integrating the dust collector near to the point of dust creation. This way less ductwork and fewer discharge systems are needed which leads to lower purchase costs and lower energy consumption.
