We offer four physical sizes of bag filter housings - Size 01, 02, 03 and 04.

A bag system is a highly adaptable to virtually any liquid and viscosity. The liquid flows through the inside to the outside of the bag trapping the particles. Bag Filter Vessels are available in Single or Multi Bag units. Multi Bag units offer large surface area and high flow rates. The filter bags have a comparable long life and require little maintenance when sized correctly.

Monarch Bag Filter Vessels are capable of following flow rates. The rates are based on filtering water viscosity of 1 c.p through a Nominal Rated filter bag.

When your application requires the fitting of High Efficiency media such as Progaf, Accugaf or Lofclear, please consult our sales staff for a sizing recommendation.

Filter Bag Sizes - Flow rates are based on using a Nominal rated filter bag.
Size Flow Rate Dimensions Flow Area
01 20,000 (lt per hour) 7" dia x 17" long 2.6 sq.ft.
02 40,000 (lt per hour) 7" dia x 32" long 5.0 sq.ft.
03 6,000 (lt per hour) 4" dia x 8" long 0.8 sq.ft.
04 12,000 (lt per hour) 4" dia x 14" long 1.5 sq.ft.

  • Miniline/Sideline Design - Lightweight, economical filter housings.
  • Miniline/Ecoline Design - Lightweight, economical filter housings.
  • Non-Metallic Housings - Available in sizes 01 and 02

In an application with a low flow rate and a high solid loading it may be preferable to oversize the unit providing a greater surface area and dirt holding capacity. The increased surface area provides reduced pressure resulting in increased filter life.

What is the liquid that needs to be filtered?
Obtain all the details of the liquid/solid composition. You need to confirm the chemical compatibility to ensure the proper material is used for the bag, retainer type, and the housing for the bags.

What is the viscosity of the product to be filtered?

What is the pH level in order to choose the proper material for the filtration housing?
Is the product an acid with a pH of 1-7 or is it Alkaline 7-14?

What type of solids does the product contain?

Are the solids crystalline or gelatinous?
Crystalline solids can form a permeable layer on the filter media and gelatinous solids can form an impermeable layer that will cause blinding off of the filter media.

What is the density of the solids?

What is the PPM (parts per million) of the solids?

What is the range of particle size?

What size does the customer want to remove and at what efficiency?
The range of Particle size is important in determining which micron rating your filter media should be. Filter bags can be made with nominally rated material or with high efficiency material.

What is the flow rate of the product?
The flow rate is critical information required when determining the size and number of bags required.

Is it a continuous or batch process?
This is important in order to determine the filter bag consumption and plumming configuration.

What is the operating pressure of the system?

At what minimum and maximum potential pressure is the system designed to run?

What is the acceptable pressure required?
Filter bag differential pressure capacity is 20-25 psi.

What is the temperature of the product being filtered?
Temperature has an impact on the viscosity, the filter media and the O-rings. The temperature can even affect the corrosion rate of the housing.
