Broad Selection of Sanitary Strainers & Filters
Strainers and filters are used to remove unwanted particles of various sizes from the process line. This is necessary to protect pumps, valves and other downline process equipment in the food and beverage, dairy, meat and poultry, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
What is the difference between a filter and a strainer? Filters use disposable media to capture fine particles, while strainers are equipped with a reusable wire mesh screen that removes the larger particles.
Steel & O’Brien offers inline and side-inlet strainers and filters to meet a range of needs. Regardless of what is being processed, the temperature and operating pressure (up to 100 psi), the line size and connection type, you’re sure to find the best product for your application in our vast inventory.
Our products easily convert from strainer to filter, are 3-A certified (without mesh), and have interchangeable parts to minimize your inventory requirements. Backup tubes with 1/4” perforations and 9 holes per square inch are standard; 1/8” perforations are available. Made from 316 stainless steel, we offer short and long models, narrow models and wide models. Filter media and dual strainer stands are also available.
