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.
