Agglomerative Acrylic Shavings Can't Bridge in Torit PowerCore®

Torit PowerCore is engineered to preclude bridging of even agglomerative contaminants like these acrylic shavings.Light and fluffy, almost like movie-set snow, the shaved trimmings
from acrylic airplane windows flew all over the plant and stuck to
everything. What a mess.

The maintenance crew had been using a baghouse collector, but the
stringy, clingy trimmings just packed it full. The crew then took the
'bone yard' approach of trying all the other types of collectors located
in the plant, including a shaker, cartridge, and cyclone collector.
Nothing worked.

When Donaldson® Torit® contacted them about trying their Torit®
PowerCore® collector, an entirely new approach to dust control, they
were excited. An experimental model of a Torit PowerCore dust collector
was installed directly over the dumpster area to see if it could handle
the highly agglomerative material.

Torit PowerCore Works
No plugging-no packed accumulation of particulate-no shavings flying
around-no bridging. The Torit PowerCore filter packs are designed to
prevent bridging and clean completely with each pulse-even on
agglomerative and nesting materials like these acrylic shavings.

This Torit PowerCore unit runs at 330 cfm.* As illustrated in the
graph above, the collector ran for 12 months, pulse cleaning at only 40
psi* to maintain a low system pressure drop below 2 "wg.*

After a year of operation, the system pressure drop had risen to 4
"wg, so the cleaning pressure was increased to a more normal 90 psi. The
filters quickly recovered and stabilized at 2 "wg.
