  • Selected materials ensure compliance with all food applications. In the case of sewn bags, a special lubricant-free thread material is used
  • An independent lab analysis ensures that EC and FDA requirements are met
  • Migration is strongly reduced through the careful selection of polymers that are considered to be safe under food law
  • Patented SENTINEL® seal ring prevents liquid bypass for safe filtration
  • Single packaging keeps filter bags free from contamination during shipping and storage prior to use
  • Eaton strongly recommends the use of an insertion tool that facilitates the insertion of the filter bag into the bag filter housing and ensures the correct alignment of the filter bag inside the restrainer basket

FDA/EC Conformity

All polypropylene and polyester materials used comply with EC Regulation 1935/2004/EC and EC Directive 2002/72/EC as well as FDA requirements according to Title 21, Section 177, as applicable for food and beverage contact.

CLEARGAF filter bags meet the requirements for EC migration performance evaluated, tested and certified by independent food research institute. They are manufactured under special conditions to ensure that they contain no contamination. To keep the filter bags contamination-free, they are individually sealed in protective plastic packaging.
