Bag to cage fit is a critical component for proper filter cleaning along with filter bag life.
In most applications, a 1/2″ pinch offers the best bag to cage fit. If you are using ePTFE laminated filter media, we suggest using just 1/4″ pinch to help reduce the amount of flexing of the filter media.
When your filter bag does not fit the support cage properly many issues can occur; lack of cleaning, excessive flexing between the cage wires causing holes to form and if the bag is too long or short for the cage, this also can also cause damage and reduce your filter life.
Depending on your process, your cages may not need to be replaced each time you replace filter bags.
With any filter bag change, we always recommend you inspect cages for any damage or wear that could impact the life of the newly installed filter bags.
