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 all current models, and any that have been discontinued 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.
filter media is made from layers of stainless steel wire cloth diffusion-bonded together to form a rigid porous metal laminate structure. Poroplate filter media is corrosion resistant, cleanable, and can withstand high temperature applications up to 800°F. Micron ratings from 2 to 150 are available.
