How to Choose Single vs Multi or Multiplex Bag Filter Housings

There are several factors that must be determined before deciding whether a single, multi, or multiplex bag filter housing unit is right for your industrial filtration application. Multi and Multiplex bag filter housing units are often utilized for larger projects, while single bag housings are ideal for small-scale applications that require filtration processes. No matter the size of your project there is a filter housing that is designed to suit your project needs.

Single Bag Filter Housings

Single bag filter vessels utilize a solo fabric filter bag to remove dirt and debris in various sizes from the fluid that is pumped through the filtration system. Single bag basket strainers provide advanced filtration processes for numerous industrial water, coolant, and chemical fluid treatment applications. Industrial single bag housings provide enhanced filtration and are an economical option for projects with a wide range of sizes and flow rates.

Single bag filter housings are extremely economical and offer a less complex filter housing option. Single bag filter vessels can be used with many different types of bags, made from all kinds of materials.

Your specific application will ultimately dictate whether a single, multi bag or multiplex filter housing is right for your project.
