In many applications, baskets are a good alternative to replace filter bags or other media. Basket design varies greatly depending on the application. Rosedale manufactures replacement bag filter baskets and basket strainers for a wide range of filter housings made by:
American Felt & Filter
Filter Specialists (FSI)
We offer replacements for many current and discontinued models by the original manufacturer. These replacement baskets are made to specifications that equal, or exceed the original manufacturers specifications.
This information is intended to be used as a general guideline. Since some characteristics are very similar from one media to the next, you should choose the media whose advantages best fit your particular filtration requirements. Consult Rosedale
for assistance in selecting the proper media for your application.
Wedge Wire (WW)
or slotted, is the most durable of all backwashable media. They are strictly limited to .001" slot or 25 micron as the lowest retention rating. Wedge wire is particularly suited for critical low maintenance applications. As a result of their construction, they are used in many instances where manual cleaning is necessary but might damage other types of media.
STAINLESS STEEL: Standard material is 304 stainless steel. 316 stainless steel is available as an option.
Basket Media Selection
PERFORATED STRAINER AND BAG FILTER BASKETS: For cleanable basket strainers, choose from the following perforation diameters: 1/4, 3/16, 9/64, or 1/16 inch. For filter bag baskets: standard 9/64 inch diameter perforations with 51 percent open area are supplied.
Perforated With wire mesh lining
PERFORATED WITH WIRE MESH LINING STRAINER AND FILTER BAG BASKETS: Stainless steel wire is used in mesh sizes 30, 60, 100, 150, or 200. When used as a bag filter basket, the following advantages are realized:
- Fiber migration is minimized
- In the unlikely event of bag rupture, the wire mesh contains the contaminant
- Bag material cannot become "lodged" in the perforations due to extreme pressure differential
- Flow characteristics are enhanced when using monofilament bags
