Flowrite 1FS2 Bag Filter housing

The Flowrite “xFSi2” series bag filter housings utilise modern engineering techniques to provide a robust vessel with a maximum pressure rating of 1000 kPa. Flowrite “FS” series housings are made from durable 304 or 316 stainless steel to ensure years of maintenance-free, reliable service. They are free-standing and are fitted standard with 50mm or 80mm flanged inlet and outlet connections. Other sizes are available on request.

Flowrite “FS” Series bag filter housings are the automatic choice for safe, trouble-free and cost-effective filtration.

Amongst the many features of the “FS” series housings are covers secured by four swing-bolts to allow quick, easy access to the filter bag.
Internally, the filter bag is securely supported by a stainless steel perforated plate basket to provide maximum strength and minimum flow resistance.
Bag-to-housing seal is assured by FSI’s proven Polyloc® ring sealing method.

The Polyloc® ring ensures that no bypass occurs during the filtration process. The Flowrite FSI2 housing is a standard double-length vessel (industry standard D/L 32″ filter bags) and is available in multiple bag configurations. From a1-bag up to a 12-round bag housing thereby providing one vessel for the flow rate required for your application.

Filter Bags – Extended life (POEX/PEEX)

The Extended Life filter bags (POEX and PEEX) provide outstanding performance on many types of contaminants such as gels, particles with wide ranges of sizes, and particles with various irregular shapes.

The coarse, pre-filtering layer is designed to provide long service life, capturing a large amount of contaminants without excess surface loading.

The POEX has been field-proven to hold up to twice the amount of contaminants as a standard felt filter bag, reducing waste volume and bag changes. The Extended Life filter bag is ideal for automotive coatings, chemicals, resins, edible oils and other fluid applications.

  • Excellent filtration on many contaminants – gels, particles with wide range of sizes and particles with irregular shapes
  • A coarse inner layer, graded pore structure, greater depth than standard filter bags provide excellent filtration performance
  • Available in polyester (PEEX) and polypropylene (POEX)
  • Twice the standard dirt-holding capacity of traditional felt filter bags to provide longer service life, fewer change-outs and reduced waste
  • Polypropylene bags are FDA compliant
  • Micron rating for polypropylene 5-100; polyester 1-100
  • PolyWeld® seam construction with hermetically sealing Polyloc® ring eliminates liquid bypass
  • Glazed finish eliminates unwanted fiber migration
