Why You Can’t Afford NOT to Choose Stainless Steel!

Any bag filter housing material other than stainless steel is compromising, but what is it compromising?

Time and money.

Does this pique your attention? Any other material other than stainless steel will rob you of your time and money.

Carbon steel does one thing really well — it is great at causing rust and corrosion to your filter bag housing. When your carbon steel bag filter housing erodes, corrodes, and breaks down — which it will — this will negatively disrupt and impact the flow of your business in the following ways, including:

  • Your money – You will have to continually spend more money either replacing or repairing your carbon steel filter bag housing. Corrosion will quickly happen and thousands of dollars will be swept away. You have to ask yourself how crucial are bag filter housings to your business? Do you use them every day? All day long? If you’re in the food and beverage industry, in a large-scale microbrewery, or in the oil fields, you’re using a bag filter housing every day, all day. So, needless to say, it’s being used a lot. There is significant wear and tear and it isn’t by coincidence that specks of rust begin manifesting. As this happens repeatedly over months, you’ll be having to reinvest time after time for this crucial piece, when instead, you can just invest once with a stainless steel bag filter housing from Filter Sciences.
  • Your time – You can always make more money, but your time is invaluable and nonrenewable — you’ll never get it back. As a business owner, you’re constantly juggling different roles and responsibilities, so spending the time to either contact the company for a repair or to install a new bag filter housing requires a hefty time investment.
  • Unreliability – Carbon steel is susceptible to corrosion in the bag filter housing industry. Carbon steel is notorious for rusting — and not just tiny rust spots — it will rust completely on the interior and exterior until replaced. Because it is prone to rusting and eroding, it is an extremely unreliable bag filter housing — you’ll always be guessing and wondering when it will be compromised.
  • Customer experience – If a product or service is unavailable to your customer they will move on and choose a business or product that is more reliable. It can also impact your customers if you’re in the food and beverage industry. A rusted and corroded bag filter housing will directly impact the taste and quality of what you’re filtering. Who knows, you could name your new beer, “Rusted Hops IPA!” Typically, when something is off in the food and beverage industry, the customer knows it. Don’t let that happen. Instead, choose stainless steel bag filter housings with Filter Sciences.
  • Quality assurance (QA) concerns – QA goes hand-in-hand with the customer’s experience — if the product is bad, they will raise a concern. And, this is where QA comes in. Carbon steel is unreliable and we never know (though it is sooner rather than later) when it will begin to rust. You and likely your employees will constantly be having to check the bag filter housing to ensure it’s not impacting your product. This is very risky because you truly can’t decipher or conclude that rust isn’t present, leaving your end product up to chance. Stainless steel bag filter housings have a much more reliable QA, which is better for your business and the customer.
  • Inefficient – It is quite simple: when a bag filter housing unit isn’t performing and doing what is expected, it is inefficient. Inefficient products are bad for everyone — it will cost you an exorbitant amount of money in replacement and labor costs, product reputation, and customer satisfaction. An inefficient bag filter housing only leads to a cycle of struggle.

Stainless Steel Bag Filter Housings at Filter Sciences

We’ve examined why carbon steel bag filter housings are not appropriate and harmful to your business, but what makes stainless steel so advantageous?

Stainless steel bag filter housings have impeccable corrosion-resistance.

This benefit alone directly impacts how your time is spent, where your money is spent, the reliability, your customers’ experiences, QA, efficiency, and environmental impact.

The Top Three Benefits of Stainless Steel Bag Filter Housings

Stainless Steel is the Champion Metal in Bag Filter Housings

If you’ve been searching for a product where both strength and corrosion-resistance are a non-negotiable, our bag housings filters are only composed of stainless steel — not carbon steel or even plastic — stainless steel metal. When you opt for stainless steel bag housings, you automatically get their ability to resist staining and corrosion, with low-maintenance applications.  

Stainless Steel Bag Filter Housings Save You Time and Money

Choosing stainless steel bag filter housings will save you time and money in the long run. Stainless steel is often more expensive (not at Filter Sciences) so businesses steer clear of it and end up paying for it over time. You’ll spend more money repairing and replacing non-carbon steel bag filter housings and investing time into monitoring and installing new units — all which robs you from running an efficient and profitable business.

Stainless Steel Bag Filter Housings Cultivate a Better ROI

Because the alternative — carbon steel — is an inferior product it subjects you to QA concerns, inefficiencies, and a poor customer experience, stainless steel bag filter housings will swoop in and save your business every time. Lesser products kill your ROI because of their costly repairs and replacements, customer dissatisfaction, and unreliability. On the other hand, if you want to see your business grow and flourish, invest in a product that will be beside you in your journey and a trusted and stable confidant!

Stainless steel bag filter housings are Filter Sciences preferred metal based on their performance. If you want the leading stainless steel bag housing filters at carbon steel prices, find them only with us!

The Different Grades of Stainless Steel

Stainless steel comes in many different grades, but we’ll focus on the austenitic stainless steels which include stainless steel 304 and 316. Austenitic stainless steel is often used to endure corrosive environments because of their high chromium and nickel content. They’re also able to withstand heat and cannot warp or be hardened through a heat treatment, but are moldable through cold-working. Austenitic stainless steel, both 304 and 316, are not magnetic in their properties.   

What are the differences between the grades of stainless steel?

  • 304 stainless steel – This is a very common type of stainless steel that boasts a high nickel content between eight and 10.5 percent by weight. The chromium content is also in high quantities at 18 to 20 percent by weight, and the other metals it is composed of is manganese, silicon, and iron. As a result of the high levels of nickel and chromium, the 304 stainless steel offers premier corrosion resistance.
  • 316 stainless steel – This type of stainless steel also has high quantities of nickel and chromium, but a majority of it consists of iron. The major difference between the two is their chemical composition. 316 has a high concentration of molybdenum, which is a chemical component also great for its corrosion resistance. 316 is most commonly used in marine equipment and applications.

The Difference Between Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel

There are many reasons to avoid carbon steel in our industry, and many benefits to using stainless steel bag filter housings.

Combating Corrosion

Many businesses require metal that thwarts rust and corrosion, not only for longevity but to ultimately save time and money.

Carbon Steel: More corrosive

Stainless steel: Less corrosive

Both types of steel have the ability to resist corrosion, but stainless steel does a much better job. Chromium is added to stainless steel which make it able to endure and resist corrosion.


While for some industries that use metal equipment, the functionality trumps the appearance. But, if you are in an industry where you have customers in and out looking at your filtration equipment, the aesthetic will mater.

Carbon steel: Less aesthetic

Stainless steel: Very aesthetic

Both metals can be sanded and buffed for a pleasing appearance, but carbon steel requires a varnish to keep the sheen in tip top shape — without the coating, the carbon steel will rust and tarnish. Another big difference is that if stainless steel is scratched it will retain its sheen, but if carbon steel is scratched it would need to be repainted or face early corrosion to that area.


There is a cost difference between carbon steel and stainless steel, but stainless steel is generally more expensive as a result of adding elements such as chromium, manganese, and nickel to it.
