Felt Bags: Felt construction is generally chosen where smaller particle retention is required, in the 1 to 100 micron range. It offers higher solids loading capacity than mesh. General purpose felt bags are offered in polyester and polypropylene.
Mesh bags: Mesh is a woven construction, generally used where micron ratings of 5 to 800 (660 to 20 mesh) are required. Two types are offered.
The multifilament mesh is a low cost, disposable material, offered in polyester or nylon.
Monofilament mesh has higher strength, and is available in polypropylene or nylon. It should be considered cleanable.
FELT BAG FINISHES AND COVERS
Standard finish: Plain, as manufactured, without treatment or covers.
Glazed finish: The outermost surface fibers are melted by the momentary application of high heat. This bonds them to one another and effectively reduces the possibility of their breaking off. This finish is not available on high temperature bags.
Mesh Covers: Covers are available that completely encase the bag. Made of woven polyester mesh, nylon mesh, spun-bonded nylon (Cerex), or spun-bonded polyester (Remay), they act to contain any fibers that may separate from the filter bag.
All Flow Ezy filter bags have a metal retaining ring at their opening. Standard ring material is cadmium-plated carbon steel, with 316 stainless steel optional. HeavSIMPLEX duty handles, sewn to the reinforced bag lip, are a standard feature. They make bag removal faster and easier.
- Flanges provided with the housing match the pressure rating of the vessel.
Housings rated 150 psi have 150 class flanges.
Housings rated 300 psi have 300 class flanges.
ANSI B16.5 Pressure-Temperature rating tables determine flange class for ASME code housings. Consult factory.
- Higher pressure ratings available. Consult factory.
- Filter Bags are specified separately.
Minimum quantity on non-standard sizes/materials. Consult factory.
