Compact dust collector for metalworking, welding, cutting, spraying

Supplier: Donaldson Filters

The new PowerCore TG dust collector Series from Donaldson Australasia has a footprint up to 65% smaller than most cartridge collectors.


It has a patented PowerCore technology housed in a wide range of completely packaged and assembled (pre-wired) units up to 10,000 cfm capacity.

The unit provides cleaner air in welding, laser cutting, plasma cutting, and thermal spray applications. PowerCore TG collectors are strong and sleek with all-welded housing. It acts either as a stand-alone on the plant floor or integrated into an OEM design.

With an energy saver package, quiet motor and smart controls specifically
designed for metalworking, it is highly economical to run.

Providing a small footprint, TG technology saves valuable floor space and equates to reduced freight and installation costs. It uses efficient UltraWeb filter media Rated MERV 13.

Key to its filtration ability is the compact PowerCore Filter Packs with easy-grip handles that don’t require tools for removal. This is a complete departure from the traditional cartridge filter. Offset-stack PowerCore Filter Packs with high performance flame-retardant Ultra-Web filter media combine Donaldson’s proprietary technologies proven in the field for more than 10 years and backed by over 300 issued and over 400 pending patents.

One PowerCore Filter Pack replaces up to three traditional cartridge filters, resulting in fewer, faster filter changes.

Its Ultra-Web nanofiber media incorporates a durable layer of premium nanofiber which is designed to intercept even the smallest dust and fume particles on the surface of the media.

Included is a new ZERO-Turn Power Pulse Cleaning System specifically designed to work in tandem with PowerCore TG Filter Packs and surface-loading. Ultra-Web media ‘zero turn pulsing’ delivers maximum cleaning energy in straight-line paths through the media and easily pulses the dust out of the fluted channels.

PowerCore Filter Packs recover more easily than traditional cartridge filters from dramatic spikes in pressure drop during pulse cleaning. The result is longer filter life.

Custom engineered components and integrated  electrical controls in combination with Donaldson PowerCore filtration technology provide a pre-assembled, finished product of top quality.

All welded, the unit is strong and durable. EPA-sponsored research in the USA has shown that superior performance results from downward flow of a dirty airstream, reducing re-deposition of dust onto filter packs.

For easy filter access, one large access door and quick-release latches provide immediate access to the easy-grip PowerCore Filter Packs. No tools are required. A lock-out capability is available.


TG’s Power Pulse Cleaning System is fully enclosed for quiet operation. High-
performance fans are mounted at the base of the unit for maximum noise control.

Control boards manage all the collector functions including the fan, the filter
differential, and the pulse cleaning system. A 24VDC motor start/stop feedback relay allows an external signal to automate the remote start of the collector fan from other equipment such as a laser table.

An optional airflow controller with VFD allows the blower to automatically
maintain prescribed airflow and to harness energy savings. A particulate sensor detects dust leaks past the filters; shuts off the dust collector and turns on a visual alarm.

An optional inline spark cooler arrests sparks with air, reducing the frequency of sparks reaching any combustible dust collected on the surface of the filter media.

The Donaldson TG Series Low-Inlet Box is a settling chamber which allows
particulate to drop out of the air stream, improving filter life.

A reinforced TG housing can support optional top-mount explosion vents, side-mount explosion vents, explosion suppression systems, fire suppression systems, heat sensors, alarm strobes, and more.
