Shaker bags are available in Loop Top or Tail Strap designs.

We offer a range of fabrics for EAF Baghouses & LMF applications – including fiberglass, aramids, and PPS – and special finishes to reduce the effect of sparks, provide resistance to high-temperature environments, provide resistance to acidic gases, and provide longer bag life.
