How bag filter applications vary by industry

Bag filters can be used for your treatment of industrial process water, wastewater, groundwater, and cooling water, and many more industrial processes.

In general, bag filters are used when solid material needs to be removed from liquids.

To begin with, bag filters are put inside of bag filter housings for purification by removing solids from wastewater.

Filtra-Systems excels at providing industrial bag filters that are both effective and uniquely designed to meet the operational needs.


Bag filter housings used in the mining and chemical industries must be stainless steel, and frequently carry an ASME stamp.

Many times the filtration process must meet stringent regulations, and frequently be capable of filtering sub-micron particles.


To remove contaminants from water, bag filters with activated carbon or reverse osmosis are frequently used.

Filtering your wastewater for reuse means removing all contaminants to meet your federal, state and local regulations while ensuring your employee safety.

Industrial bag filters are used to filter water according to the type and size of particles that are in the water.


Industrial bag filters are often used in the food and beverage industry due to their low cost and a high degree of reliability.


The brewing, wine and distilling industries use bag filters to separate grains from sugars, remove proteins from slowing the fermentation process, and also to remove any unwanted solids prior to bottling.

Each process typically requires different filter bags because tighter bags used towards the end of the process can have adverse effects if used in the early stages.

And that’s just a small list of possible bag filter applications.
