Donaldson Torit DFO 18 - 3 Cartridge Filter

DFO dust collectors’ proprietary downward airflow design delivers highest filtration performance while using less energy. The DFO collectors proprietary ExtraLife Filter Cleaning System, and Donaldson Torit’s oval cartridge filters together are an unbeatable system. 

The Donaldson Torit® Downflow (DFO), delivers optimum performance and is one of the best values available in today’s marketplace.

The DFO advantages can be found in the collector’s proprietary design and components. Featuring a ledge-less design in combination with proprietary Ultra-Web® filter media and cleaning technology.

Oval cartridges now sets the standard for industrial dust collection – by providing a 25% increase in airflow capacity, improved airflow path, and a 29% increase in pulse cleaning pressure. These compact, high-efficiency units use high efficiency oval-shaped cartridge filters, especially well-suited for filtering sub-micron dust.

Providing higher efficiency and smaller footprints than any baghouse collector or even other cartridge collectors, DFO adds up to long-term savings and improved performance in many applications.

Pulse Cleaning Technology ExtraLife™ Filter Cleaning System uses proprietary, computer-modeled pulse cleaning technology to easily “pulse off” dust from the surface of the filter, improving filtration efficiency and prolonging filter life.

A wide range of filter media's are available from the Ultra web range of cartridges allowing the DFO to be tailored to meet the exact needs of the nuisance dusts to be extracted.

Easy Maintenance, with the design of the DFO’s quick access covers, filter removal and maintenance is extremely fast with one operation

9 paired filter cartridges (18 in total) each “Ultraweb” cartridge has a filter area of 18.5 m sq (190ft sq) giving an overall filter area of 333 m sq (3420ft sq)  .

This unit is capable of extracting within the range of 1710-14,370 cfm dependent on the final fan selection, system resistance and dust loading.

The reverse pulse system of the DFO maintains optimum filter efficiency by automatically back washing the filter elements with a 90 psi high pressure jet of compressed air removing the contaminants and depositing them quickly into the waste collection bucket.
