Cost-effective filter bags for demanding applications
ABP polypropylene filter bags are fabricated from hydrophobic microfiber filter material, which require pre-wetting with an aqueous solution (full details about wetting and installation are provided with every box of ABP filter bags)
Highly efficient melt-blown filter material in polypropylene with graded density profiles to maximize dirt-holding capacity and prolong service life
No additives such as resins, binders or surface treatments
About Extended Life Filter Bags (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 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.

About MAX PONG Filter Bags The PONG Heavy Duty Extended Life filter bag (MAX PONG) is the leader in high-efficiency, low-cost filtration. Its seamless micro-fiber graded density cartridge insert removes trace oils that frequently occur in process fluids, and provides four times the dirt-holding capacity of conventional polypropylene bags. Combined with its welded seam felt cover and Polyloc® ring for elimination of unfiltered bypass, it becomes the perfect choice for uses where longer-lasting, high-efficiency filter bags are needed. The MAX PONG Heavy Duty Extended Life filter bag is ideal for continuous flow applications such as e-coat and phosphate baths, and batch applications including oils, edible oils and syrups, or any final or polishing filter requirements.

About Polyweld® Felt Filter Bags Polyweld® filter bags hold a distinct advantage over all types of needle-sewn bags. The welded seams completely eliminate the possibility of unfiltered liquid bypass occurring due to needle holes. The result is a tighter seam, high bag efficiency and improved finish product yields. In addition, the fused edges of the Polyweld bag provide a fiber-free finish and virtually eliminate unwanted fiber migration. Since the Polyweld bag is not constructed with thread, the possibility of silicone contamination from this source is also removed. FSI’s Polyweld filter bags are available in several different media: standard polypropylene felt, extended life polypropylene felt, and standard polyester felt.

With its unique physical properties, Cleanmake Products filters with PTFE membrane are able to out perform nearly all other filter constructions in many applications. Among its many useful properties, PTFE is hydrophobic (Literally “afraid of water”) meaning it repels water. Additionally, it has a very low coefficient of friction of 0.05 – 0.10 (meaning substances have a hard time sticking to it and are easily removed) and has a high melting point of approximately 325°C.
Stricter governmental regulations for particulate emission are on the horizon. The new EPA PM2.5 standard for particulate matter emissions will present additional challenges for facilities to reach compliance. Be ready to meet the challenge by employing high efficiency PTFE filter bags in your Cleanmake Products .
PTFE filter bags from Cleanmake Products .com can reach amazing efficiencies when operated deployed correctly. PTFE filters from Cleanmake Products .com can easily reach sub-micron filtration ranges. In some applications efficiencies are high enough to allow for the recirculation of treated air back into the facility. Use of such “Green Technology” further promotes an environmentally friendly operation, and saves on heating costs.
Efficiency Claims Confirmed By EPA Testing Independent testing conducted under the EPA’s Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) program has proven that PTFE Membrane filters are capable of ultra high efficiencies. Tests of PTFE filter bags from several different manufacturers showed particulate matter outlet emissions as low as 0.0006 gr/ACF (1.3mg/m3). In most size ranges the test PTFE fabrics showed zero emissions during testing. Emissions data were below the detection limits of the testing equipment. The fractional efficiency percentages were 100%, only dipping to 99.98% with particle sized 0.3-0.5 (μM).*

The Benefits of Surface Filtration Over Depth Filtration
PTFE membrane filters also have a distinct advantage over non-membrane filters due to differences in the way they filter out particulate. Non-PTFE membrane filter bags employ depth filtration to filter particulate. Depth filtration is accomplished when a layer of dustcake forms on the outside of the filter, and an accumulation of dust particles is deposited in the depth of the filter. In coming particles are captured as they follow the tortuous path through the dustcake, and depth of the filter. As time goes on, more and more particles get trapped within the filter, leading to higher pressure drops and eventually filter “blinding” which reduces filter life.
Cleanmake Products filters with a PTFE membrane however employ surface filtration to remove incoming particles. The PTFE membrane works as the primary filter cake, collecting all of the particulate on the surface. This keeps the particulate from penetrating the filter fabric, which can lead to reduced airflow, and filter “blinding”.
Additionally, with traditional filters larger than normal emission occur during start-up and immediately following the cleaning cycle due to lack of primary dustcake. With PTFE filters, this problem is largely eliminated.
PTFE Fabric Combinations PTFE membrane can be applied to a large variety of fabric substrates depending on the particular application. Contact a Cleanmake Products .com representative to help you to determine which combination of fabric and PTFE membrane is the best fit your particular process environment.
