Polyline duplex bag filters have no metal components to rust or corrode and their one-piece polypropylene molded filter housing bodies have no seams, welds, or crevices to trap particles. This makes them very easy to clean — an important feature in batch or multiple product applications. They never need to have the flow shut down for filter bag change-outs. A quick quarter-turn of the operating lever diverts the flow from one filter housing to the other through a CPVC plastic valve assembly that allows the process to continuously run during bag change-outs. The filter can be automated for remote operation; the operating lever on the valve assembly is replaced with either pneumatic or electric actuators that can be controlled remotely or by a computer system. The filter housing covers are hand removable without the need for tools.
