They are designed for applications such as paint plants, chemical plants, food and beverage production facilities, and many others. Cartridge filters are also good for applications that require ultra-pure water, such as pharmaceutical uses.

Bag Filters

Bag filter use a variety of internal media to filter contaminants, such as activated carbon and others. They are a lower-cost alternative, yet have a smaller area of filtration than cartridge filter. If you have a small operation and a small budget, bag filter will probably be the better option. In addition, smaller operations typically do not have to replace bags that frequently. This leads to a reduction in expenses for disposal.
