More about filters and strainers

Filters remove fine particles or even microbials from a liquid or gas and include a disposable woven or non-woven “sock” or filter cartridge. (Think of this process as similar to your coffee maker filtering coffee grounds.) Microns or micrometers are the typical measurements used in filtering. Our no-shed culinary steam elements feature a fibrous stainless steel material that exceeds 3-A requirements and is 99.9% efficient at 2 microns.

Strainers are a type of filter which use perforated tubes, screen mesh or wedge wire baskets to remove larger particles from a process stream. (Think of this process as similar to using a colander for draining pasta.) Mesh is the typical measurement used in straining. 

Filters and strainers can be used individually or together to remove particles from a process stream. They are ideal for the dairy, food, beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and similar sanitary industries.
