Why Choose A Bag Filter System
Due to their high flow capabilities and low cost replacement elements, bag filter systems are the most economical way to filter a wide variety of medium to high volume liquid streams. Here are some of the other benefits.
- Solids retention from 1 to 800 microns available from low cost off the self filter bags.
- Flow rates of up to 180 US gallons per minute are possible. Higher flow rates can easily be accommodated with multiple single bag housings, or multi-bag housings.
- Energy efficient pressure requirements, generally 2 to 15 PSI (Clean to Dirty)
- Fast and Convenient bag changes are facilitated with quick release closures.
- No down stream contamination from filtered solids during change outs because unwanted solids are all collected inside the filter bag.
- Wide range of available sizes and piping configurations provide ease of installation into new or existing systems.
- Carbon Steel, 304SS and 316SS materials offer a wide spectrum of chemical compatibility.
- Our filter Bag Housings are designed to use industry standard Filter Bags giving a wide choice of supply for ongoing replacements.
- Incoming Plant Water (city or well supply)
Unexpected contamination from piping corrosion, silt, well sand or even from off-site municipal pipe line maintenance can cause significant and costly process problems.
- Heat Exchange Circuits
Contaminant build up in open or closed loop heat exchange systems greatly lowers system efficiency. Bag filter systems in the loop will help maintain efficiency and reduce maintenance costs.
- Equipment Protection
Valves, pump seals, spray nozzles and other process equipment all need protection from unwanted solids. A low pressure drop bag filter system is an economical and efficient way to provide this protection.
- Purifying Finished Products
Bag filter system are ideal to clarify or classify a wide variety of liquid products; High viscosity inks, ointments, paints, varnishes and adhesives or lower viscosity food products, household cleaners, industrial chemicals or many other liquids.
- Pre Filtration
Bag filters are ideally suited to protect and extend the life of more expensive downstream filtration elements. (RO, DI, etc.)
