pleated bag filters offering extended life at absolute retention efficiencies

Pearl Filtration’s pleated bag filter is an absolute rated filter bag with a pleated media configuration. It is the pleated media which differentiates the filter from our absolute rated bag filter range, as pleated filters are able to offer an increase in service life. This is due to an increase in the filter surface area; not only due to the pleated configuration, but also a thicker media depth. As a result, filter surface area is approximately 2.5 times that of a standard absolute rated filter. The filtration efficiency for pleated filter bags is maintained at 95 % absolute.


Pleated bag filters are suitable for many industries such as; chemical, food and beverage, paints and coatings, pharmaceutical, and water treatment and processing.


Absolute rated, extended life filter bags are available to suit either standard size 1 and size 2 filter housings.


Absolute micron rating range: 1 µm
