Donaldson Celebrates 1,000th Donaldson Torit PowerCore Collector Sold Worldwide

o Smaller footprint with smarter filtration technology

o CP Series and TG Series support a broad array of industrial applications

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Industrial manufacturers have made their choice in dust collectors. Today, Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE:DCI), a leading, worldwide manufacturer of filtration systems is pleased to announce a major milestone in the Torit® brand - 1,000 Donaldson Torit® PowerCore® collectors sold worldwide. These units include the CP Series and TG Series collector models, which are used in a broad array of industrial applications.

Under the tagline "Smaller. Smarter," Donaldson Torit introduced the PowerCore family of dust collectors in 2008. Unlike anything available in the industrial manufacturing market, the CP Series and TG Series collectors offer superior filtration in a collector up to 70 percent smaller than traditional collectors. Additionally, the PowerCore filter pack, a revolutionary filter element used in both collectors, reduces maintenance time and cost. Shortly after the launch, the PowerCore CP Series dust collector was awarded Plant Engineering magazine's "Product of the Year" and Processing magazine's "Breakthrough Product of the Year" Awards.

"As manufacturing facilities look for ways to streamline, increase performance, and reduce cost, our customers turn to us for dust collectors that can maintain peak output within a smaller space," said Tom Scalf, Donaldson's General Manager of Industrial Filtration Solutions - Americas. "The Torit PowerCore CP and TG Series dust collectors meet this specification with a filtration process that is cleaner, easier to maintain and more cost effective. The industry awards for our PowerCore products add validation to Donaldson's ability to design and deliver innovative filtration technologies that are ahead of the technology curve and exceed our customers' expectations."

At the core of the Torit PowerCore collector is the PowerCore filter pack, which combines the patented Ultra-Web® nanofiber technology with Donaldson's media configuration expertise. The PowerCore filter pack is a complete departure from traditional filters for both dust collectors. For the CP Series, one 7-inch deep PowerCore filter pack replaces six 8-foot long filter bags. In the TG Series, one PowerCore filter pack replaces up to three traditional cartridge filters. With both models, maintenance is easy, as no tools are required and easy-access doors make filter changing quick compared to competitor models.

"The rugged fluted-media configuration used in the PowerCore filter pack is unlike any other filter bag or cartridge," continued Tom Scalf. "The alternately-sealed fluted channels allow air to enter through an open flute on the dirty side; the air is then forced to exit on the adjacent flute on the clean side. Independent testing has proven that this reliable, leak-free design provides up to 78 percent fewer emissions than polyester bags and meets MERV13 efficiency targets. Additionally, the Ultra-Web technology maintains lower operating pressure drop for a longer period of time to reduce energy costs."

Significant savings can be realized with both the Torit PowerCore collectors, including:

o Initial costs such as freight, installation and wiring;

o Lower energy consumption;

o The ability to place collectors so that they reduce duct work; and

o Reduced maintenance costs due to space savings, fewer filter changes and ease of moving a unit.

"This milestone of selling 1,000 Donaldson Torit PowerCore collectors into the global market speaks to the benefits this filtration technology has brought to our customers in such a short time," concluded Tom Scalf. "The innovative design and cost savings realized makes the Torit PowerCore collector the market leader in dust collection now and into the future."

Donaldson Torit PowerCore collectors are used in a broad range of markets, including: paper and packaging, grain milling, fabricated metals, cement and gypsum, mineral processing, food products, chemical and petroleum, mining and quarrying, wood, concrete, etc. To learn more about these applications and Donaldson Torit PowerCore collectors visit
