Hygienic Fabrics & Filters has long provided filtration products for the food, dairy, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries using FDA-approved materials.  Examples of custom food-contact products include block wraps, press cloths, cheese bandages, filter bags and tubes, sleeves, and replacement filters for OEM equipment.  We also supply custom-size food barrier bags.   

Our experience with products unrelated to food-contact includes aprons, backpacks, and handle bags.   

Using our industrial die-cutting equipment we can die cut custom shapes to your specification in a variety of materials.  An example would be fluid-sealing rubber gaskets.

Food Contact Products

Hygienic Fabrics & Filters has a long history of supplying a wide variety of webbing materials suitable for processing of food and dairy products.  Hygienic Fabrics & Filters also offers reusable and disposable materials and filtration products to help you produce your specialty cheese.

Filter Bags and  Replacement Tubes

Filter bags are custom-designed to be tied or clamped to the discharge chute of a product pipeline.  Filter bags prefilter product and reduce foam and splash.  Choose a bag large enough to allow product to exit faster than it enters to avoid pressure in the bag that can cause churning, product damage, and bag failure.  Choose a bag long enough to be supported by the receiving vessel to prevent the bag from ripping or slipping from the discharge line.

Filter bag and tube materials are available in micron ratings from 1 micron to 1500 microns to meet your filtration specification and are available with or without drawstrings in any size from any available material.

Following are examples of materials used:

  • Flannels
  • Cottons
  • Bleached Sheetings
  • Nylons
  • Monofilament Meshes
  • Bleached & Unbleached Cheesecloths
  • Polyethylenes
  • Polypropylenes

Barrier bags and tubes are made of plastic and designed to protect their contents from moisture, dirt, oxygen, light, and other contaminants.  Barrier bags extend shelf life and maximize flavor and product color.
