Review our extensive collection on industrial water filters and industrial water treatment in general.

Single Bag Versus Multi-Bag Filter Housings

Over 30 years of experience is one of the reasons that Filtra-Systems has been able to develop such effective industrial filtration systems. We have produced a number of bag filter housing options for customers to fit their specific needs in the field.

Choosing whether a single bag filter or a multi-bag filter is best for your specific need is a common question. If you’re looking for higher flow rates and less frequent bag changes, a multi-bag filter housing may be the best option. Multi-bag filter housings provide a fast turnaround. Spring balanced lid and swing bolts make bag changes fast and efficient. Our compression style bag clamps guarantee bag sealing. Multiple bags means higher flow rates and less downtime for bag changes, so you’re not spending your day and dollars with unnecessary tasks. The ergonomic design provides a low profile for easier access, and the spring-balanced lid can be opened single-handedly. A highly convenient feature of the multi-bag filter housings is that they accept both industry standard #2 bags and pleated cartridges. It also allows alternate inlet and outlet flange placement, and orientation can be specified.

However, a multi-bag filter housing may not always be necessary. Filtra-Systems single bag filter housings can serve a variety of purposes as well. What are some of the advantages of a single bag filter housing? First of all, price. It is economically designed and therefore the simple design that has been perfected over three decades allows for a single bag filter to be efficient and effective regardless of your budget. No tools are required to change bags. V-Clamp cover closures make changing bags fast and easy, so you aren’t spending your time on these tasks. Vessel housings are electropolished stainless steel, so they are incredibly easy to clean and maintain. Like the multi-bag options, the single bag filter housings also take standard or pleated bags.

Choosing the proper bag and cartridge filter can be complicated, so if you have questions about our bag filter housings or cartridge filter housings, contact our team of experienced applications engineers, who will review your process and make a recommendation.

The Top Three Applications For Industrial Water Filtration Systems

Investing in an industrial water filtration system for your business or company can be one of the best purchases you can make. The long term payoffs are ideal. A high quality industrial water treatment system can help you save energy, cut down operating expenses and decrease the need for plumbing repairs and general maintenance – saving you money in the long run. But what else can an industrial water filtration system do for you? At Filtra-Systems, we won’t leave you guessing. Here are the top three reasons why your heavy manufacturing plant needs an industrial water filtration system.

Recycle and Reuse

Having an industrial water filtration system helps heavy manufacturing plants maintain their environmental responsibilities. By using a closed-loop water filtration system, solids and other hazardous materials can be effectively removed from wastewater, leaving clean, reusable water behind. Corporate social responsibility is a huge aspect that many consumers today take into consideration when purchasing products. With effective industrial water systems, you can make sure your manufacturing business meets standards and exceeds expectations.

Drought Protection

To prevent high costs during drought periods, many manufacturers in states that are at risk for drought implement protocols that will protect their water supply. Thankfully, closed loop processes and effective systems can provide security with droughts occur. By recycling water within the plant, manufacturers can ensure that they will always have the amount of water necessary to run their business.

Lower Costs

With all the expenses involved in running a successful business, it’s no wonder that manufacturers are always looking for ways to cut costs without reducing quality. One costly area of business is managing the water supply and making sure that it follows requirements put in place. When systems fail or need parts replaced, it can be expensive to repair them. In addition, if for some reason your business fails to meet requirements, the fees and consequences can begin to add up. By investing in a high-quality water filtration system and working with a dedicated team such as ours at Filtra-Systems, you can make sure that your system is always working and meeting your requirements.

Reclaiming and recycling wastewater helps to lower costs, letting you focus your attention on other areas of your business. That’s why when you invest in an industrial water filtration system, you’re not only investing in your company, but also investing in your overall efficiency and effectiveness.

Industrial wastewater  treatments remove suspended solids, oils and other contaminants so only clean, reusable water remains.

Because of the hazardous materials in wastewater from heavy engineering and manufacturing plants, it’s no surprise that there are a number of restrictions and guidelines in place to ensure safety and health requirements. In fact, many plants are required to meet a certain standard in order to stay in commission. Finding responsible methods for removal of these waste products is an effective way to make sure your company is meeting those requirements.

The Filtra-Systems STiR Industrial Water Filter removes up to 95% of suspended solids at 5 micron, which is significantly higher than other systems. Without the use of expensive chemicals, this system can effectively clean up the wastewater your business produces.

Common Industrial Applications Of High Flow Water Filters

Filtra-Systems is an innovative company that is dedicated to providing solutions for our customers and their industries. We specialize in industrial water treatment and water processing solutions. We offer a variety of solutions for your company’s needs in order to minimize the need for multiple technologies, reduce operating costs and positively impact the environment.

At Filtra-Systems, we offer different industrial water treatment options depending on your needs. Our high flow water filters are optimal for water processing in different industries. Our river protection filter is designed to handle large amounts of water to be discharged to fish-bearing rivers. The river protection filters uses our STiR technology for highly efficient results.

The high-flow water filter was tested in the Bow River, which receives 4700 gallons/day of waste water (which includes fish waste, suspended solids, fish food, etc.) from the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery (which raises about 3 million fish yearly). The STiR filter was evaluated to see if it would effectively remove waste material from the discharge stream. The results of the three week evaluation period exceed our expectations, and showed that the STiR filter would be able to reduce the total discharge to less than 22 kg/day (the plant’s discharge limit).

Our results concluded that the STiR filter could reduce the amount of solids by a factor of 10. A single STiR filter was used to achieve this reduction. The plant now is in environmental compliance, and protects the water from pollution.

Our STiR filter is unlike any other water processing filter offered on the market. We take pride in our highly-engineered, customized technology that sets new standards for products to follow. Read more about the STiR technology and the benefits it provides your company here.
