A micron-rated fabric filter, is a type of filtration device used to capture particles of a specific size range from a fluid stream, air or liquid. The term "micron" refers to a unit of measurement equal to one millionth of a meter (µm), which is commonly used to quantify the size of particles being filtered.
For example, a filter rated at 5 microns can capture particles that are 5 microns in size or larger.
These filters are commonly used in various applications, such as:
Industrial Filtration: Micron-rated fabric filters are used in industries such as food processing, beverages like tea, kombucha, coffee, wine, beer, spirits, and sake, and infusions for vodka and gin. Other uses include worm casting filtration, sauces, juice, honey, berries, large fruit pressing, supplement ingredients, mushroom compost, fertilizers, and many more.
It's important to choose the right micron rating for your intended use, as filters that are too fine can become clogged quickly, leading to reduced efficiency and increased maintenance requirements.
