The user-friendly, cost-effective bag filter housing for high volume applications and processes demanding frequent bag change-out. Ideal for batch process runs and high dirt load applications.


  • Available in Type 304 Stainless Steel, Type 316 stainless steel, or carbon steel with Buna-N® o-rings standard (Viton® o-rings are an available as an option).
  • A counterbalanced spring-assisted cover lifting mechanism balances the cover perfectly, giving it a "weightless" feel. Opening and closing the cover is "finger tip" easy.
  • QIC-LOCK rapid opening and closing mechanism ensures simple, operator friendly operation with minimal downtime for bag change-outs. Reduces downtime to increase productivity and decrease operating costs.
  • Unique 3-point hold down ensures a high-quality seal between each filter bag and the housing body. A supplied special tool ensures simple effective operation.
  • Side inlet and bottom outlet provide easy and complete drainage. A standard tangential outlet reduces housing height.
  • Available in three sizes for 4, 6, or 8 standard size 02 double length filter bags.

Simple to Operate

The MAXILINE VMBF SE design prevents the cover from being opened until the vessel has been properly vented. Moving the safety interlock handle upwards simultaneously vents the vessel and unlocks the clamp for opening. A threaded spindle mechanism, operated by a hand wheel, opens the clamp so that the cover can be raised with the help of a spring assisted hinge. The entire process takes less than 30 seconds compared to the 10 minutes or more it takes to open a vessel with bolted closure. The vessel cannot be re-pressurized until the QIC-LOCK clamp has been fully closed and the safety interlock engaged which closes the vent valve.


  • Available in 304 or 316 stainless steel for high corrision resistance.
  • Buna-N O-rings for the cover are standard. EPDM, Viton, or silicone rubber seals and gaskets are available.
  • Multiple I/O connections to suit application.
