Single Bag Filter Housing

Today we’re taking a deep dive into another very specific product that we carry here at Advanced Filtration: Industrial single bag filter housing is a type of filtration device that uses a single filter bag to remove contaminants from liquids. Removing suspended solids, debris, oil, and other contaminants from liquids and gases is integral to a wide variety of industries, as we’ll look at below.

The components of Single Bag Industrial Filter Housing

The filter bag is typically made of a synthetic fabric, such as polypropylene or polyester, and is selected based on the size and type of contaminants to be removed.

The filter housing itself is typically made of stainless steel or plastic, and is designed to withstand the pressures and temperatures of industrial applications.

Industrial Uses and Applications of Single Bag Filter Housings

Single bag filter housings are available in a variety of sizes and configurations, and can be used in a wide range of industries, including:

  • Food and beverage processing
  • Electronics manufacturing
  • Mining
  • Metalworking
  • Chemical processing
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturing
  • Water and wastewater treatment
  • Oil and gas production
  • Power generation

Operating and Maintaining Single Bag Industrial Filter Housing

Single bag filter housings are relatively simple to operate and maintain. The filter bag is simply inserted into the housing and secured in place. The liquid to be filtered is then pumped into the housing, where it flows through the filter bag and exits through the outlet port. As the filter bag becomes clogged with contaminants, the flow rate will decrease. At this point, the filter bag should be replaced.

The Benefits of Single Bag Filter Housing

Single bag filter housings are a cost-effective and efficient way to remove contaminants from liquids. They are also relatively easy to install and maintain, making them a popular choice for industrial applications.

Here are some of the benefits of using industrial single bag filter housings:

  • High flow rates and dirt holding capacities
  • Easy to install and maintain
  • Cost-effective
  • Versatile and can be used in a wide range of industries

If you are looking for a reliable and efficient way to filter liquids in your industrial application, a single bag filter housing may be the right solution for you.

Drawbacks of Industrial Single Bag Filter Housings

Although we are certainly proponents of the single bag filter when it’s appropriate, there are some limitations of using them in certain cases. For example, single bag filters may not be suitable for industrial applications where extremely high levels of filtration are required. They may simply not provide the level of filtration needed to get the job done.

In addition, industrial single bag filter housings can be heavy and bulky, and might also require frequent bag changes. While these two points may not matter as much to some, they’re still worth noting.

This is why a free consultation with Advanced Filtration is always a great start to getting the filter solution that is right for you.
