3M™ ME & DF Series Housings DatasheetSource: 3M Purification Inc.
3M Purification Inc. offers the 3M™ ME series bag housings, for use with 3M™ DF series filter elements or conventional bag filters, in 3, 4, 6, 8, and 12 filter element configurations. Constructed with carbon steel, 304, or 316L Stainless Steel, the housings are designed for use with #2 size filter bags or elements. The housings have been engineered for maximum flow throughput for a given vessel footprint to minimize the required floor space. All ME series bag housings include stainless steel baskets, for either 3M DF series element or bag filter support. The housings are rated for operation up to 150 psi @ 300 °F and are manufactured in accordance with ASME code and "U" stamped.
The compact design of the 3M™ ME series bag housings and in-line bottom inlet and outlet connections offer tremendous flexibility for installation and operation. The swing bolt closure design and davit arm operation allow for easy filter element change-out.
3M ME series bag housings come standard with a swing bolt cover closure and davit arm for ease of cover opening. An optional quick open/close (QOC) cover closure version is also available. Through the use of a band clamp and hinged cover, the QOC design allows for rapid vessel opening and closing with minimum labor requirements. This can be of significant benefit for operations requiring frequent filter change-outs. For more information on the QOC design, please refer to 3M Purification Literature LITHSHQC1.
