SIDELINE BAG FILTER HOUSINGS
The SIDELINE model bag filter housing is the industry standard bag filter vessel design when a Code UM or Code U stamp is required. The SIDELINE filter housing is applicable for all nominal micron retentions; if you require a specified efficiency (99% efficient) filter media, you should use the TOPLINE design.
Each SIDELINE bag filter housing has a swing bolt cover which can be hinged in any one of four positions. The cover itself is what is referred to as an "evacuation cover" - a concave design that reduces the ullage (empty space) within the filter housing. The advantage is twofold; there's less "wasted fluid" during a bag change and the fluid level ends-up lower in the housing to reduce spillage once the cover is opened.
The cover is an investment cast component, ensuring precise, reliable sealing with concentric downwards pressure onto the bag hold-down ring. Each SIDELINE bag filter vessel is ASME UM Code stamped (U stamp is optional).
The restrainer (support) basket is made of 316SS and has 9/64" perforations. SIDELINE bag filters also come with adjustable epoxy powder coated steel mounting legs.
Optional features for SIDELINE bag filters include Tri-Clover connections, differential pressure taps, CRN registration, mechanical/electro-polished internal/external, steam jacketing, ASME U code stamp, a side outlet and HAYFLOW basket upgrade.
