How Bag Filter Usage Differs by Industry

At Filtra-Systems, we take our role in providing innovative filtration solutions seriously. Our dedication and expertise extends to the production of industrial bag filters in a wide range of industries. Bag filters are placed inside of bag filter housings for the purpose of purification by removing solids from wastewater. They can be used in the treatment of industrial process water, wastewater, groundwater, and cooling water, along with many others. In general, bag filters are used in situations where solid material needs to be removed from liquids.

Filtra-Systems excels at providing industrial bag filters that are both effective and uniquely designed to meet the operational needs of a variety of industries. Whether you need carbon steel or stainless steel housings, you can count on Filtra-Systems to have them in stock and ready to ship.


The brewing industry uses bag filters to separate grains from sugars, remove proteins from slowing the fermentation process, and also remove any unwanted solids prior to bottling. This requires different bags, as the tighter bags used towards the end of the process can have adverse effects if used in early stages.

Mining and Chemical

Bag filters used in these industries must be stainless steel, and frequently carry an ASME stamp. The filtration process must meet stringent regulations, and frequently must be capable of filtering sub-micron particles.

Water and Wastewater Purification

To remove contaminants from water, bag filters along with other purification methods, such as the use of activated carbon or reverse osmosis, are frequently used. Filtering wastewater for reuse means having the capacity to eliminate all types and sizes of contaminants to meet regulations and ensure safety. Industrial bag filters are used to filter water according to the type and size of particles that are in the water.

Food and Beverage Production

Industrial bag filters are often used in the food and beverage industry due to their low cost and high degree of reliability.
