How to Find the Right Bag and Cartridge Filters

Filtra-Systems professionals are trained to assist a wide variety of industries and provide a custom solution to any specific need. Bag and cartridge filters are used across many different industries and it may not always be easy to find the most cost efficient and effective option available. Bag filters are used for the purpose of removing solid material from liquids.

Some applications include the treatment of industrial process water, wastewater, groundwater, and cooling water. A Filtra-Systems professional is trained to identify the most appropriate fit for your bag and cartridge filter needs. However, it is always useful to be aware of the differences across industries when choosing a bag and cartridge filter.

Bag filters, along with activated carbon or reverse osmosis, are frequently used to remove contaminants from water for water and wastewater purification. Wastewater filtration entails having enough capacity to eliminate all types and sizes of contaminants to meet regulations and provide safety.

Mining and chemical bag filters must be stainless steel (or better), and typically have an ASME stamp. Filtration systems in this industry are subject to detailed regulations. In most cases the process must be capable of filtering sub-micron particulate.

Bag filters in the brewing industry have multiple criteria in order to provide a quality product. These bag filters are used to separate grains from sugars, remove proteins that may effect the length of the fermentation process, and also to remove any unwanted solids prior to bottling.
