This multi-bag filter housing is equipped with the QIC-LOCK™ opening mechanism. The flat lid construction, combined with Eaton’s SENTINEL® filter bag seal rings, seals perfectly against the lid and minimizes the amount of residual product on the inner surface. This reduces product loss, spillage, and cleaning hassle. Units are available in 4 filter bag configuration and come standard with filter bag size 02 stainless steel restrainer baskets.


  • QIC-LOCK opening mechanism allows for safe, easy and fast filter bag change-outs for higher productivity and lower operating costs. Ideal for processes requiring frequent filter bag changes such as batch applications
  • Automatic safety interlock for venting housing (cover cannot be opened if housing is under pressure)
  • A counter-balanced, spring-assisted cover lifting mechanism allows for quick and easy opening of even large covers by one person
  • Flat lid design improves sealing, reduces product loss and makes filter bag change-outs cleaner
  • Direct feeding of filter bags via individual inlets generates a laminar flow. This ensures optimal cake formation to further improve filtration performance
  • Heavy-duty stainless steel mounting legs are included
  • Designed in accordance with Section VIII, Division 1 of the ASME Code (standard in the US), "AD 2000-Merkblätter", EN 13445 and PED (standard in EMEA)

Eaton’s MAXILINE VMDE multi-bag filter housing is user-friendly, seals perfectly, and is designed for safe filtration and minimized product loss. Ideal for batch processes which demand the highest quality of filtration.


  • Available in 304 or 316 stainless steel for high corrosion resistance.
  • Four bag filter housing for size 01 and 02 filter bags.
  • Buna-N® O-rings for the cover are standard. EPDM, Viton®, PTFE-encapsulated Viton or silicone rubber seals and gaskets are available.
  • Multiple I/O connections to suit application.
  • Low profile design with side inlet and tangential outlet provides easy and full drainage and reduces housing height to make filter bag change-outs easier. No need for ladders, stools, or catwalks.
