Pleated Filter Bags

The filtration setup that results in too much downtime can be costly for many reasons. Our new generations of PLEATED BAG elements result in fewer bag change outs, less downtime, and longer cycle times. These pleated liquid bags in shape of cartridges are designed for applications requiring nominal filtration media between 1 and 200 microns and absolute filtration media between 1A and 40A micron.

In order to gain some perspective, a nominal standard size #2 bag has 4.4 square feet of surface area, whereas the pleated liquid bags have 22-44 square feet in nominal felt configuration and 35 square feet in absolute rated configuration depending on the micron. Therefore, these bags have 5 to 10 times more surface area than the regular size bags and consequently last that many times more per application, which ultimately reduces the downtime of having to replace filter bags during your filtration process.

 

Nominal Depth Pleated Liquid Bags

Due to the unique design of this pleated cartridge, it provides 5 to 10 times the surface area (depending on micron). This dirt holding capacity and efficiency are maximized by pleating two layers of nominal felt to create a pre-filter & final filter layer.

The two-layer pleat pack is designed for higher flow applications with a lower initial pressure drop. Thermally bonded end caps prevent particulate by-pass.

• Available in Polyester or Polypropylene construction

• Micron ratings from 1-200

• Fits most Size #1 or #2 strainer baskets, and is available as a direct fit for the X100 housing

• Polypropylene and Polyester materials meet FDA regulations for food contact under CFR21, Section 177.1520

• Silicone-free construction

 

Absolute Rated Deep Pleated Liquid Bags

With a removal efficiency of 99%, these bags are available in filtration ranges from 1A to 40A microns.

Due to the unique design of this pleated cartridge, it provides 35sq. ft. of filter surface area which will fit most Size #1 & #2 strainer baskets. Dirt holding capacity and efficiency are maximized by pleating several different filter media together in a single pleat element. A single cartridge is designed to replace up to 20 standard nominal rated filter bags.

The cartridge is designed to fit into existing baskets and provide an O-ring side-seal without any housing modifications. It is available in different filter media to meet chemical compatibility and industry standards.

To achieve optimum performance while minimizing filtration costs, it is recommended that the flow rate is at 30 GPM and pressure at a maximum of 25 PSID.

 • Available in Polyester or Polypropylene construction

• Micron ratings from 1A-40A

• Fits most Size #1 or #2 strainer baskets, and is available as a direct fit for the X100 housing

• Polypropylene and Polyester materials meet FDA regulations for food contact under CFR21, Section 177.1520

• Silicone-free construction

 

  X100 Housing

  The standard X01 filter bags has 2 square feet of surface area compared to 16-25 square feet of pleated bags, depending upon the micron rating.

  Pleated bags do not require any adjustments to the current filtration setup, they simply replace the bag and basket design and fit directly into the housing.

 

How To Order?

If you are not certain about your housing specifications, please contact us prior to making a purchase.

If you are retrofitting the pleated bag to your existing unit, please measure the basket inner diameter to determine which Cap Style you will need. Optional cap style dimensions are:

F – X100 Style

SC – Small Cap – 6-5/8” D

BC – Big Cap – 7-1/8” D

AR – Flanged Cap designed for the FSI/PALL filter housings

Please choose NOMINAL or ABSOLUTE pleated bag option, when you are directed to the particular style bag, choose the Micron rating you need, then the Material (Polyester or Polypropylene), and then choose the desired length (X100, #1 or #2), finally choose the type of flange that will match your application.

Please note: Standard packaging is 4 per case with a minimum order of 2 (which is a 1/2 box quantity).
