Industrial Dust Collection
Industrial dust collection products and systems remove industrial contaminants from polluted air streams prior to atmospheric discharge, and where feasible, return the cleaned air back into the manufacturing facility. Which type of collector you choose, will depend on the collected particulates physical and chemical characteristics and the process exhaust conditions.
Industrial Dust Collection Benefits
Benefits of industrial dust collection may include:
- Employees are protected from the harmful effects of pollution with an effective industrial dust collection system.
- Industrial dust collectors keep facilities compliant with health and air emission regulations.
- Use of industrial dust collection systems protects the environment from pollutants from manufacturing processes.

Donaldson® filtration research and development has led to cartridge dust collectors that solve most industrial dust and particulate challenges in a variety of facilities such as:
- Food Processing
- Metal Working
Worker exposure to potent compounds is a major concern in the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical containment is of utmost importance. Donaldson® Torit® Downflo® is setting new standards in pharmaceutical dust containment systems with:
- Filters and contains dusts of low, intermediate, and potent toxicity
- Potent compound surrogate tested
- Features triple-sealed Bag-In/Bag-Out (BIBO) components at the filters
- Includes integrated HEPA BIBO chamber under negative pressure
- Variety of clean-change dust discharge options such as a continuous liner
Dust collector applications and collection systems rely on a dust collector with filter media that has high efficiency particulate removal with long filter life. Donaldson® Torit® with their Power Core® dust collector designs, couples Ultra-Web® filter media in unique pack symmetry with an enhanced filter cleaning system to address that need. The filtration media in each pack, is configured in a corrugated flute structure allowing a straight through airflow. A 60% reduction in filter size is gained over cylindrical cartridge filters. This is the recognized next generation in dust collector design. The filter packs significantly reduce the collector “box” size, change-out maintenance time/costs and operation costs. The only thing not reduced is the interval between filter replacements.
Advancing technological has always been a Donaldson Company trademark. The recently introduced Donaldson® Downflo® Evolution (DFE) dust collector series advances a new design package with fewer filters and a smaller footprint. It has an enhanced MaxPulse™ filter element cleaning system, triagonal shaped filter cartridges and their proven Ultra-Web® filter media. The DFE was designed to enhance filter cleaning, improve filtration capacity, increase filter life and reduce compressed air usage. This evolution is just another example of Donaldson’s commitment to provide the best dust collector design on the market.
The rugged, dependable Donaldson® Torit® line of dust collectors features Torit® RF Baghouse dust collectors, developed to handle large air volume and heavy dust loading encountered in process applications such as:
- Food Processing
The RF dust collector design as well as other Donaldson models, have multiple filter media options based on particulate captured and airstream conditions. Should you need more airflow out of an existing collector, consider the significant advantages of our pleated filter options.
The Donaldson Torit DCE® Dalamatic® Dust Collector is an auto reverse jet dust collector suitable for continuous process applications with high product loads.

Donaldson® Torit® offers silo or bin vent dust collectors specifically designed for collecting and cleaning dusts from silos, bins, bag dump stations, conveyor transfer points, etc. Because applications vary widely, optional features are numerous. They can be fan powered or unpowered, filters can be reconditioned or cleaned with compressed air pulse cleaning or a mechanical shaker, and filters can be cartridges, filter packs, pleated filter bags, envelope bags or socks. Important considerations for equipment selection include filtration efficiency, maintenance requirements and time required to replace filter media. Before selecting a dust control system, dust characteristics including explosion hazard must be evaluated.

Particulate collector applications and collection systems that handle “sticky” dusts in saturated airstreams are difficult to address with either a dry or wet collector. The Ultra High-Efficiency (UHF®) System was specifically designed for those applications. The UHF filters out smoke and sticky oily emissions using a rolling bed of designed filtration media, capturing particulate down to sub-micron in size at a low pressure drop and horsepower requirement. Finding solutions to these applications mandates that the UHF option be evaluated before proceeding with your equipment selection.
