Industrial Dust Collectors for Heavy Dust Loads & Large Volumes of Air

The rugged Donaldson® Torit® RF baghouse collector handles heavy dust loads and large volumes of air more effectively than any collector on the market.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

RF Baghouse Dust Collectors

290_RF_Baghouse_CollectorsEnergy efficient, high volume dust collector

The rugged Donaldson® Torit® RF baghouse collector handles heavy dust loads and large volumes of air more effectively than any collector on the market.

The small footprint of the RF combines a cyclone precleaner and a baghouse into one unit. It features a powerful yet energy-efficient cleaning system, eliminating the need for compressed air to clean the bags. Combined with the revolutionary Dura-Life™ “Twice the Life” bag filters, the award-winning RF gets the job done while using much less energy than competitor collectors.

Dura-Life bag filters are engineered with a unique hydroentanglement process that uses water to blend the fibers. This process provides a more uniform material with smaller pores, better surface loading, and better cleaning. These advantages provide twice the operating life before bags need to be replaced due to high pressure drop. Longer life from Dura-Life bag filters lowers maintenance and operating costs and raises baghouse dust collection to a whole new level.

DURA-LIFE Technology Breakthrough for Bag Users

Standard in all Donaldson Torit RF Baghouse Collectors

Traditional 16 oz. polyester bags are produced with a needling process that creates larger pores where dust can embed into the fabric, inhibiting cleaning and reducing bag life. Dura-Life bag filters are engineered with a unique hydroentanglement process that uses water to blend the fibers. This process provides a more uniform material with smaller pores, better surface loading, and better cleaning. These advantages provide twice the operating life before bags need to be replaced due to high pressure drop. Longer life from Dura-Life bag filters lowers maintenance and operating costs and raises baghouse dust collection to a whole new level.

What is a hydro-entanglement process?

Instead of a mechanical process using needles to entangle and compress polyester fibers into a felt material, the hydro-entanglement process uses jets of water to entable and compree the polyester fibers into felt. The process creates a material that is more uniform and provides better filtration.

How are Dura-Life bags different from standard polyester bags?

Dura-Life bags are made from polyester material that is created through a hydro-entanglement process instead of a needle punch process. The hydro-entanglement process creates a more consistent and uniform filter material. The material is comparable in thickness to standard polyester, but weighs about 1/3 less. The fibers are smaller and the hydro-entanglement process creates a loftier and lighter weight fabric that filters more effectively.
