Features and Benefits

  • GORE® LOW DRAG Filter Membrane technology provides an excellent combination of filtration efficiency, airflow, and durability compared to other industry leading membranes.
  • Potential benefits of this new technology are longer bag life, higher product throughput or fan energy savings or some combination thereof, depending on the application.
  • Woven ePTFE scrim for outstanding dimensional stability, extended flex life, and resistance to mechanical damage. All PTFE construction provides highest allaround chemical resistance and maximum bag life.


  • Chemicals Processing: Chemical process reactors that incorporate micronizing, drying, grinding, and product collection in extreme environments that are chemically and thermally aggressive.
  • Minerals Processing: Brick kilns.
  • Metals Industry: Lead, copper, and other base metal production.
  • Power Generation and Incineration: Medical and municipal waste incineration, as well as coal-fired boilers.
