Pleated Filter Bags
Pleated Filter Bags
Pleated filter bags are the first major breakthrough in fabric filtration since the introduction of PTFE membranes.
As the name suggests, the filter bag is pleated to provide up to three times the filtration surface area of a conventional sock on a cage that it replaces. Manufactured from spun bonded polyester filter media and polyurethane tops with either polypropylene or steel cores, the pleated bag comes in a one piece construction for ease of installation and maintenance.
A great deal of research, development and field testing has taken place to perfect a bag that will operate at elevated temperatures. The number of pleats, depth of pleats, selection of filter media, number and type of bands, core velocities and cleaning system must all be taken into consideration when selecting the right pleated bags.
Upgrading existing baghouses to increase through-put has been a major success story for Filtercorp and the pleated bag, with many installations running in their 10th year. New baghouses designed around the pleated bag save space as well as cost with reduced operating costs and downtime. Pleated filter bags increase filtration surface area up to 300%. Custom sizes can be made as required to replace existing socks on cages. Range of standard sizes in stock as below.
