Case Studies: Ultra-Web Delivers Longer Filter Life

It was time for cleaner air at Ready Machine Tool & Die Corp.,
Connersville, Ind. The dust collector that this stamping and die
manufacturer had previously used to filter dust required frequent
changeouts and still, smoke was visible in the plant.

“Our other collector just wasn’t doing its job
and the filters didn’t clean well. It had 16 filters that I kept having
to change out every three months because they would plug up,” said
Lennie Helms, Maintenance Manager.

Ready Machine replaced their collector with a
Donaldson® Torit® Downflo® Oval (DFO 3-12)
cartridge dust collector with higher efficiency, longer lasting
Ultra-Web® nanofiber filters. The DFO
collector has been operating almost around-the-clock for a year without
having to replace the first-fit Ultra-Web® filters.

“The DFO collector has only 12 Ultra-Web®
filters and it’s doing twice the job,” said Helms. “The air quality is
so much better. You can visibly tell that there is no smoke in our plant


INDUSTRY: Metalworking – grinding &
