Filter Nonwoven/Woven Cut and Sew Manufacturing
Because of their unusually high wet strength, light weight, good chemical resistance and low cost, nonwovens are outstanding for many filtering applications. We not only specialize in nonwovens for coolant filtration and offer a complete range of densities and micron ranges, but we are also able to cut and sew filter pouches, socks, tubes, and bags out of woven and nonwoven filter fabric.
Filter Bags and Press Cloths
We cut and sew industrial fabrics for filter bags that go in housings, vacuum leaf filters, rotary drum covers, and plate and frame filters. All cloth elements are expertly tailored to assure proper fit and conform to OEM specifications.
An experience engineer can help you choose the optimal material, and our inhouse converting plants will ensure a quick turnaround and affordable pricing.
Available ring styles for filter bags
Carbon or Stainless Steel Ring
Polyester, Polypropylene, or Nylon Rings and Flanges
Unfinished (no ring)
Buna-N or Viton Flanges
