Automotive

Filtration of pretreatment bath, filtration of E-coat, topcoat and clearcoat, primer, paint ring line filters, parts cleaning fluids, drawing compounds, lubricants, metal working fluids and pump intake filters.

Chemical

Catalyst recovery, removal of pipe scale, polishing of aqueous process fluids, alkalis, acids and solvents, filtration of emulsions and dispersions, gel removal from resins. Activated carbon or catalyst removal in the fine chemicals industry is a typical example of a demanding application in chemical processing. Eaton Filter Bags meet these application requirements for high filtration efficiency coupled with long service life and reliability.

Electronics

Wafer and chip processing, electronic etching baths, photo-chemical polishing and high-purity water filtration and prefiltration of various membrane filtration processes to improve their cost effectiveness. Eaton Filter Bags demonstrate the required purity, efficiency and consistent performance.

Food and Beverage

Polishing filtration of wine, spirits and beer, removal of particles from edible oils, removal of carbon black from cellulose, slime removal in gelatins, liquid sugar, thick juice, corn syrup polishing, starch processing, milk processing and soft drinks. Many Eaton Filter Bags conform to FDA and even EC food processing directives and can meet the unique and varied demands of these applications.

Metal Working

Filtration of hydraulic oil, pretreatment system filtration, precious metal recovery, metal working fluids, and drawing compounds. Parts cleaning machines use our filter bags for minimizing residual dirt on parts.

Petrochemicals

Filtration of lube oils, fuel additives, enhanced oil recovery, filtration of amine solutions, filtration of glycol fluids, gas purification processes, distillation and cracking processes, amine washers, off-shore filter stations, oil drilling and injection fluids.

Paint and Lacquer

Removal of agglomerates, removal of paint coagulates, solvent filtration, removal of storage contaminants, filling lines, and paint mixing lines, monomer purification.

Pharmaceutical

Recovery of expensive active ingredients, catalyst recovery, active carbon purification and removal, filtration of gelatins, hormones, vitamin extracts, polishing of herbal mixtures, protein removal from plasma, filtration of saline solutions.

Resins, Plastics, Inks and Coatings

Oil and polymer filtration, dispersions, polymerization batches, resins for can coatings, plastics compounding, printing ink, plastics processing, paper coatings, high purity ink-jet fluid filtration.

Water Treatment

Well water filtration, water treatment plants, silt removal, pipe scale removal, sand and algae removal from sea water, ion exchange resin recovery, calcium deposit removal, filtration of chemicals used for water treatment, dust removal from cooling tower installations. Surface water filtration is an area traditionally dominated by cartridge filtration. Now, the high efficiency and long life of Eaton High Performance Filter Bags are a costeffective alternative to expensive cartridges.
