Baghouse dust collector pre-separates 97 percent of dust before it reaches filters
Air filter manufacturer Donaldson's new Rugged Pleat baghouse collector combines a cyclone pre-cleaner and baghouse into a single unit, making it ideal for filtering heavy, abrasive dust typically found in woodworking. 
The RP baghouse dust collector utilizes 44 percent fewer filters than traditional baghouse collectors, says Donaldson, resulting in a 72 percent reduction in change-out times. It also comes with Donaldson's iCue connected filtration monitoring service, which allows users to remotely monitor, manage, and optimize operation.
Thanks to its SuperSep inlet system, the collector can pre-separate up to 97 percent of heavy dust before it reaches the filters. EvenFlow baffles help reduce turbulence and evenly distribute airflow. A PD pump provides energy-efficient pulse air with reduced condensation.
Filters measure at 5 feet tall, making them easier to handle than conventional 8-, 10-, and 12-foot bags and cages, says the company.
