TMC Mechanical Filter Bags
Tropical Marine Centre supplies a comprehensive range of low cost
food grade mechanical bag filters which offer low cost and highly
versatile mechanical filtration for freshwater and saltwater systems.
Bags are ideal for use as pre-filters to main filtration systems and are
easily added to existing systems to increase mechanical filtration
capacity. Bags can be washed repeatedly for long service life, but we
recommend that bags are replaced regularly depending on
application. Designed for use withTMC Filter Bag Housings.
MediaTypes
Felt media (polyester) bags provide depth filtration and have a high solid collection capacity.All felt filter
bags are singed (this is where the fibre hairs are melted by the application of high heat) on one side to
eliminate fibre migration.These bags are suitable for filtering fine solids from 5 to 200 microns in size.
Mono-filament bags (nylon) are suitable for filtering coarser solids over 400 microns.
PosiGuard Collar
The PosiGuard flanged bags employ a top lip for added convenience and positive sealing and have
built-in handles for ease of removal, making bag changes easier and cleaner.The PosiGuard flange design
locates the bag into the filter face and locks it in place for positive sealing.
Other Applications
For use with chemical media, such as activated carbon, zeolites and buffering agents. Ensures quick and
easy media changes.

MaintenanceTip
Filter bags require regular cleaning to operate effectively - the amount of maintenance required will
vary from system to system depending on various factors such as feeding regimes. Failure to maintain
the bags will result in them becoming clogged and water overspilling the bags, along with the associated
solids. The best results are achieved by turning them inside out and pressure washing, however
spraying with a hose will suffice. It is recommended that bags are replaced on a regular basis as, over
time, there will be a build up of deposits in the filter material which will result in ineffective filtration
and increased cleaning requirements. The bag size required will be dependant on the application.
However it can sometimes be beneficial to combine different sized bags to reduce cleaning frequency.
400 micron bags can also be utilized to house filtration media such as carbon.
