Abstract

A filter sock for use with a filter frame in a milk filtering apparatus is formed by folding a length of non-woven material about its longitudinal centre line (11) and then heat welding the longitudinal edge portions (12,13) together to secure the edge portions. The in use bottom transverse edge portions (15) are lap stitched together to give a stitched seam (16).

Description

A FILTER SOCK This invention relates to a filter sock and in particular a filter sock formed from a non-woven material. While the filter sock of the present invention can be used for filtering a range of liquids, the filter sock of the present invention has a particular application in the dairy industry for use with a milk filtering apparatus.

In order to clarify fully the specific use of the filter sock of the present invention it is to be understood that known filter socks are used for both end of line filtration where the sock is fitted at the end of a liquid delivery pipe and where filtration takes place from inside the filter sock to outside and filtration where the sock is fitted on a filtration frame within a liquid filtration apparatus and where filtration takes place from outside to inside the filter sock. The present invention is concerned with the latter instance and the filter sock of the present invention is designed primarily for use with a filter frame in a milk filtering apparatus.

The present invention provides a filter sock comprising a length of non-woven material folded longitudinally upon itself about substantially the centre line of the length of material, the longitudinal edge portion of the folded material being secured together by a heat welded seam and the transverse edge portions at one end of the length of material being secured together to form the filter sock, the opposite end of the length of material being left open to provide an open mouth to the filter sock.

Preferably the transverse edge portions of the length of material which are secured together are secured using a lap stitch seam.

The invention will be understood from the following description of an embodiment thereof given by way of example only in which - Figure 1 is a perspective view of a filter sock according to the present invention and - Figure 2 is a transverse cross section of the filter sock along the line II - II of Figure 1.

The filter sock is formed from a length of non-woven fabric 10 which is folded upon itself along a central folding line 11 such that the longitudinal edge portions 12 and 13 are substantially aligned. The edge portions 12 and 13 are heat welded together along the longitudinal seam 14. The transverse edge portions 15 are secured together using a conventional lap stitch to form a stitched seam 16.

It will be appreciated that the seam 16 may be formed using heat welding. However in practice the use of the lap stitch is presently deemed to be more economical and convenient in the production of filter socks, without detracting from the performance of the filter sock.

The provision of the heat welded seam 14 is in use of the filter sock on a filter frame of a milk filtering apparatus deemed to enhance the performance of the filter sock. In use on a filter frame the milk is filtered through the filter sock from outside to inside. Where a conventional filter sock with overlocked stitched seams is used sediment of size 1000 micron can pass through the spaces between the needle holes of the filter sock which holes are in size up to 2000 micron. The provision of the heat welded seam 14 stops the passage of sediment through the longitudinal seam 14 and accordingly enhances the in use performance of the filter sock. A welded seam reduces the permeability of the filter sock in that the seam is substantially a total longitudinal seal.

The in use bottom end of the filter sock as it is fitted on a filter frame has a lap stitch seam 16. This is feasible without detracting from the performance of the filter sock because in position on the filter frame within a milk filtering apparatus the bottom seam is located against a stainless steel back plate which effectively means there is little filtration through the stitched bottom seam.

With filter socks for use with a filter frame in a milk filtering apparatus namely filter socks having a length of 12 inches (30.48 cms), 17 inches (43.18 cms) and 24 inches (60.98 cms) for example and where the filtration takes place from outside to inside the filter sock, the heat welded seam works satisfactorily since the use of the filter frame means that filtration takes place over substantially all of the surface area of the filter sock and in conditions where the pressure on both sides of the filter sock is substantially the same.

Claims (4)

1. A filter sock comprising a length of non-woven material folded longitudinally upon itself about substantially the centre line of the length of material, the longitudinal edge portions of the folded material being secured together by a heat welded seam and the transverse edge portions at one end of the length of material being secured together to form the filter sock, the opposite end of the length of material being left open to provide an open mouth to the filter sock.
2. A filter sock as claimed in claim 1 in which the transverse edge portions which are secured together are secured using a lap stitch seam.
3. A filter sock as claimed in claim 1 in which the transverse edge portions which are secured together are secured using a heat welded seam.
4. A filter sock substantially as herein described with reference to the accompanying drawings.
