3M Filter Bags
|3M Series 100 Bag Filters
3M 100 Series high-performance filter bags are constructed of polypropylene melt blown microfibers, allowing for very fine particle capture at high efficiencies and are over 90% efficient at their suggested application rating. This 3M Filter offers an excellent balance of high efficiencies with very low initial pressure drops. The bag construction makes this filter an easy to use, convenient, high-performance alternative to filter cartridges. The 3M Series 100 Liquid Filter Bag can also adsorb unwanted trace oils that frequently occur in processed fluids. The high amount of surface area due to the polypropylene microfiber construction, results in oil holding capacities from 10-20 times the filter’s own weight.
|3M Series 500 Bag Filters
3M 500 series high performance liquid filter bag incorporates the bypass and transport layer design that maximizes the amount of surface area in each bag. The result is a filter designed to improve performance and reduce operating costs. The filter contains up to 38 square feet of usable filter media. Compare this with only 4.4 square feet for most competitive filter bags and 0.65 square feet for most competitive cartridges.
