Filter bags are versatile, cost-effective solutions for a wide range of surface and depth filtration applications. They can be used for pre-filtration, end-filtration or as polishing stages to clarify or separate liquids. Filter bags sit within filter bag housings and can handle a wide range of flow rates, from 0.01 m3/hr to 1000 m3/hr.
Envirogen supplies a wide range of single and multi-bag filter housing (holding up to 14 filter bags) and a wide range of filter bags, including options that can be used with or without bag filter housings.
Our filter bags are available in a range of industry-standard sizes, micron ratings, media types and configurations, such as single or multi-layer. A wide assortment of collar and ring types ensures compatibility with most bag filter housings. For added versatility, our filter bags can be used for oil adsorption and water absorption, as well as particle capture, and we provide a range of auxiliary products, including baskets, gaskets, magnetic inserts, bag retainers and liquid displacers.
How does a filter bag work?
The filter bag is fitted in a basket to support the filter media and a seal is made by a compression ring. The fluid flows through the filter bag from the inside to the outside and solids are captured inside. As the filter bag collects more solids, the differential pressure grows until it reaches a recommended limit, at which point the filter bag must be changed.
