Features of bag filters

Other filtering techniques collect the solids on the outside of the equipment, which increases the risk that they will fall inside the filter when it is removed.

Filter bags maintain the clean side of the filter in this manner; the quantity and size of impurities they remove are determined by the micron rating of the filter bag in question.
