Bag Filters

Bag filters, stainless steel and PVC

Bag filters have many liquid filter applications, such as bulk chemicals, food industry and water treatment. For higher-pressure and larger volume applications, the bag is in a housing and supported by a mesh basket. Our range of bag filters & housings cater for a wide spectrum of applications and include various materials of construction.

The bag filters come in standard single and double length versions. Housings are either PVC or stainless steel. The bag micron sizes available in this range are 1,5,10.20, 50 and 100microns.

Duplex-type Bag Filters

Single or Double Length – PVC, Corzan® CPVC or PPL

Two lines of bag filters can be setup in parallel for easy maintenance and bag cleaning without shutting down the pump or UV line.


No Downtime for Bag Change-Out: With an all-plastic, corrosion-resistant Bag Filter, there is never a need to shut down the line and there is never any downtime necessary when changing filter bags. Just turn the lever handle to divert flow from one filter housing to the other. Then spin off the hand-removable cover, remove the dirty bag and install a new one.

Corrosion Is Never a Problem: A metal filter housing will ultimately rust or corrode and contaminate the process media. There is no danger of this happening with a polypropylene bag filter. It will never rust or corrode and never compromise the quality of the process fluid.

Wide Range of Filter Bags: Non-woven polypropylene filter bags are available in 1, 1.5, 2, 2.6, 3, 5, 6, 10, 12, 13, 25, 32, 50, 100, 150, 200, 400, 600 and 800 micron sizes. The retaining basket that holds the bag has a unique, universal seat that works with almost any single or double length filter bag.
