When using an industrial filter bag (with a Stainless Steel ring sewn into the top of the bag), the bag seats in a “cut-out” of the machined ring welded to the top of the perforated support basket. A filter bag Hold Down Ring holds the filter bag in position while being held in place by the Quick Release Handle.

SaniClean Strainers is pleased to offer a complete line of filtration bags. SaniClean’s Sanitary Basket Strainers product line has been designed so that the different sized strainer baskets will accept industry standard filter bags, and more! We also have filter bags available for the SaniClean Sanitary Basket Strainers that don’t correlate with industry standard filter bag sizes (see table below) –
Filter Bag Material Selection
Felt Filter Bags – Filtration felt is a low cost disposable media with depth-filtration qualities and high-solids loading capacity. We recommend using only filtration felts with a glazed or singed outer finish to minimize fiber migration from the filter surface. Felt bags are available in micron ratings from 1 to 200 microns.
Monofilament Bags – Monofilament mesh is an extremely strong material woven on precision equipment to ensure consistent pore sizes. It can be reused in many applications. Nylon is the most widely used monofilament material. Monofilament mesh bags are available in micron ratings from 1 to 1200 microns.
Multifilament Bags – Multifilament mesh is a low cost, disposable filter media. Multifilament mesh is available in polyester and nylon. Multifilament mesh strainer bags are available in micron ratings from 75 to 1500 microns.
MATERIAL SELECTION – Filter Bags are available in Polyester, olypropylene, Nylon, Nomex, and Teflon.X
• SaniClean’s “standard” micro-filtration filter bag comes with a Stainless Steel top ring for all size strainers.
• For all Polyester Felt filter bags it is suggested that the filter bag material be “singed” prior to fabrication. This added quality step helps minimize any fiber migration from the outer surface of the bag.
• For all Polypropylene Felt filter bags it is suggested that the filter bag material be “glazed” prior to fabrication. This added quality step helps minimize any fiber migration from the outer surface of the bag.
• As industrial filter bag suppliers, SaniClean’s filter bags can be supplied with handles or pull tabs sewn in, to ease filter bag removal.
