- Industry / Applications
Bag filters and housings provide low cost, versatile liquid bag filtration solutions for a range of applications. Bag filter options range from sewn filter bags to welded, multi-layer bags. Single and multibag filter housings offer high performance design, and heavy duty investment-cast components. Side inlet configurations, designed to flow through the top to minimize headroom of unfiltered liquid, provide optimum sealing and easy bag change-out. With legacy products from GAF and Loeffler, Eaton has the most diverse bag filtration offering on the market.
Process filtration systems are designed to clean and treat substances like water, chemicals, and gases in most processing applications from sanitary to heavy industrial. These filtration systems form an important part of most industrial processes, in applications like pharmaceutical, chemicals and coatings, food and beverage, water treatment, oil and gas, and more. A well designed and maintained filtration system reduces maintenance costs and improves process efficiency.
Each industrial filtration system is designed according to the properties of the material and the contaminants (or by products) that are being removed, as well as the process needs. Filtration solutions may range from a basket strainer that can remove products as small as 40 µm (microns) or depth filters that can filter down to .1 µm. The ideal filtration solution also depends on whether the process can be interrupted to change or clean filters, and whether automatic cleaning is necessary. The design and quality of the filtration system is essential to protect downstream equipment such as meters, pumps, compressors, traps, valves and filters from damage due to contamination.
