Bag Filter Housings For Liquid Filtration



Filtration is a common processing step in many liquid based industrial operations. Applying the right degree of filtration or particle capture helps assure a predictable level of output quality. Selecting a bag filtration unit should incorporate a number of factors to meet the goal of good performance with a minimized personnel commitment to maintenance.

  • Materials of construction must be compatible with the process liquid, as well as providing resistance to the effects of their surrounding environment.
  • Connection size and type should be adequate for anticipated flow rate and compatible with the connected piping system.
  • Installation location should permit all around access for service, including clearance for opening the unit for filter bag changes.
  • Pressure rating of the housing must meet any applicable requirements of the process, jurisdiction or industry standards.
  • Provide an adequate arrangement to isolate the filtration unit from the fluid system, perhaps with a bypass loop, to allow for in-place access.
