Filter Bags


GIFS bags are made of felts and fabrics produced in-house or bought-in according to specifications from selected and qualified suppliers.

The quality of fibres, yarns, scrims, felts and fabrics is constantly checked with laboratory tests. Furthermore, the integrated manufacturing cycle and the use of modern cutting machinery, tubing and stitching, allow continuous production. Stoppages for set-up, breakdowns and manufacturing imperfections are reduced to minimum.

Modern manufacturing planning systems and Quality ISO 9002 standards guarantee delivery on time and to product specifications. The several models of plants and different filter conditions have made necessary the creation of a database available to engineers, sales people and clients.

GIFS bags can be for:

  • Filtration at high temperature, up to 280
  • Filtration of flying ashes of coal fired boilers in power plants
  • Filter bags for fumes from desulphurization from coal fired boilers in power plants
  • Treatment of gases from urban, industrial and hospital solid waste incinerators
  • Filtration of toxic gases with high content of polluting elements and metals (ceramics, non ferrous           metals, glass)
  • Analyses of specific applications to solve filtration problems (cement plants, lime, gypsum)
  • Consulting services to study critical applications

The available fibres are: polyester, polypropylene, polyamide PA11, PA12, PA6.6, PVC and PTFE. Different scrims are selected to improve cake release, to obtain the right porosity and to guarantee the filtration degree as required from the process.
