The emergence of new, more effective filter bag materials has challenged the popular filter cartridge. Filter bags are now an attractive, economical alternative to cartridges in many applications. Bags cost less, are easier to install and remove, and require less room in storage and disposal.
The convertible filter housings from Absolute Filters offer you the ability to use filter bags in place of cartridges without burning your bridges behind you. You can always change back to cartridges,
for whatever reason.

Absolute Filter's convertible filter housings are offered in two diameters to hold 3 and 5 cartridges, respectively. The 3-cartridge housings are nominally rated at 70 gpm*.
The 5-cartridge Series housings are nominally rated at 100 gpm*. These ratings are governed by the restrictive openings in the cartridge support plate. They do not take into account the pressure drops imposed by the bags or cartridges used.
