Flow Requirements and Single-Bag Versus Multi-Bag Filtration Systems

Filtra-Systems has over 30 years of experience in the industrial filtration industry. Our brand revolves around the ability to identify the needs of our customers and provide the product that will best fit their needs. Like all of our products, we have a wide variety of bag filter housing options for our customers depending on their needs.

Our bag filters have been applied in a wide variety of filtration systems, including cooling tower water, brewing, injection water, biodiesel production, coolant filtration, remediation sites, and RO protection.

Deciding whether a single bag filter or a multi-bag option works best may cause questions. A multi-bag filtration system offers a variety of advantages including higher flow rates and less downtime for bag changes. For example, FSSB multi-bag filter housings are available for flow rates up to 1200 gpm, and FSQC housings can process flow rates as high as 2300 gpm. A low profile provides easy access and spring balanced lids can be opened with one hand.

If a single bag filter option suits your needs, there are multiple advantages as well. A simple design allows the single bag filters to be economically priced. A v-clamp cover closure makes changing bags fast and easy, and tools are not needed.

Our proprietary bag clamping mechanism guarantees that our bags will be adequately sealed and the housing will accept both standard or pleated bags. Electropolished stainless steel housings are easy to clean and maintain. We have a large inventory of single-bag housings, and cartridge filters are also available to meet your immediate needs.

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