This sizing guide provides information for the initial sizing and selection of PBH Bag Filter Housing and BP & BN Series filter Bags.
|Removal of coarse and fine particles||Prefiltration|
|Protection of fine filters (e.g. fine filter cartridges)||Straining applications|
|CNC machine coolant||Food & beverage|
Considerations to make when choosing the best filter bag material.
|Polypropylene felt for general reduction of particulates. Available micron ratings 1, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 200||Nylon mesh for removing particulates of a specific size or straining applications. Available micron ratings 50, 100, 200, 400, 600|
Please see the information below comparing filter size against flow rate.
|PBH Size 10 Housing||50 lpm (3 m3/h)|
|PBH Size 20 Housing||100 lpm (6 m3/h)|
* With 25 micron PP felt bags
* * Please note that flow rates may vary depending on application – i.e. dirt load, viscosity, micron rating etc.
A micron is a unit of measure and equals one thousandth of a millimetre.
