MBP Series – High Efficiency Filter Bags
The MBP Series high efficiency filter bags are available rated at 1-25 micron, and perform to efficiencies >95%.
The filter bag consists of up to 4 layers of meltblown polypropylene media, including an outer cover to prevent fibre migration into the filtrate as well as providing added support to the filtration media. The high density of small diameter fibres compared to that of a standard needlefelt enhances particle retention, leading to superior, highly efficient filtration.
Combined with our polypropylene Welseal ring, the MBP Series high efficiency filter bags are available with a fully welded construction, ensuring that no by-pass of process liquid can occur through needle holes. Each layer is individually welded, giving enhanced filter bag integrity and seam strength compared to single weld construction methods.
MBP Series Filter Bag Brochure
MBP and MBPE Series high efficiency filter bags meet EC food contact directives and are constructed from FDA listed materials conforming to code of Federal Regulations 21 CFR Part 177.
MBP and MBPE bags are used in applications previously dominated by expensive cartridge filtration due to higher dirt holding capacities, longer service life and lower overall cost whilst maintaining or increasing the required filtration efficiency. Example applications include protection of membranes in reverse osmosis systems, carbon removal and final filtration of critical fluids. They can also be used as a pre-filter to prolong the life of expensive, sub micron cartridges.
Allipure Series – High Efficiency Filter Bags
Allied Filter Systems Ltd has developed the Allipure series, a unique range of absolute rated filter bags rated from 5 to 0.6 micron, which perform to an efficiency of 99.98% (Beta 5000) at the stated micron rating. For processes requiring absolute and/or sub micron liquid process filtration, the use of filter cartridges has previously been the method of choice to achieve high performance in critical applications with consumable filter elements.
Extended Life Filter Bags
Increased thickness of the filter media compared to that of the equivalent standard felt filter bag enables an increased retention of particles. In addition, the extended life filter media has a graded density structure i.e. progressively smaller particles are captured as the fluid follows a tortuous path through the media, stopping the filter bag from blinding prematurely. The result is a filter media with a higher dirt holding capacity, leading to increased filter bag lifetime.
Filter Bag Accessories
Allied Filter Systems Ltd is able to supply a wide range of bag filter accessories to complement our range of filter housings and also those from other manufacturers. Restrainer baskets – Stainless steel 316L in all industry standard sizes and available in a variety of styles to fit all types of housings. Baskets can also be manufactured with a stainless steel mesh lining (37 to 840 micron) or produced from perforated sheet other than the standard 3mm, commonly 1mm to 10mm. Coated baskets (e.g. Halar) are also available.
