BAG FILTER

FB & FBZ bag filters are designed for maximum dirt holding capacity with high flow rates, combined with the flexibility of micron changing; just select the proper bag without expensive media replacements. 
High technology applied to the manufacturing of the filter media gives the bag filter one of the highest retention efficiency among the different types of mechanical solid separation even with high viscosities.

Fbz METPOR Filter

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

Pre-filtration of water, resins, inks and paints, oils, solvents, coolants, adhesives, etc. Also as polishing filters on application handling filter aid materials, activated carbon or ionic interchange resins.
