Inline Strainers

Inline basket strainers are highly important when it comes to food processing. An inline mesh strainer traps and removes particles and contaminants in food products. In addition, inline basket strainers safeguard the components in the piping system, such as spray nozzles, pumps, and valves. These basket strainers are manufactured according to standard or custom specifications. Find out more about inline strainers below.

Types Of Inline Strainers

 Many inline basket strainers are made with stainless steel material or a carbon material. Other materials that they may be produced include bronze, brass or cast iron. It’s important to note that stainless steel is highly durable, easy to maintain and highly corrosion resistant. An inline filter strainer comes in many shapes, including an inline y strainer.  

A duplex design has two basket strainers, and a simplex design has one.

Strainers are broken up into three filtering categories: coarse, medium strainers and filtration. Coarse strainers are designed for large particles. Medium strainers are designed for particles up to 1905 microns. Filtration strainers are designed for particles as small as 5 microns.

How to Choose the Right Inline Strainer for Your Business

There are five main factors to consider when deciding what type of inline strainer to use.

  • What industry is the strainer being used for?
  • How is the inline strainer being applied?
  • What percentage of solids must be captured?
  • What is the particulate size that needs to be removed?
  • What is the process flow rate and size of the line?

It’s also important to consider the industry when choosing strainers, and realize that regulations apply to depend on the industry. For example, craft breweries use highly customized strainers to remove pulp and hops. Juice processing plants utilize more resistant alloys in a strainer since their products are citrus-based and high in acid.

Line pressure, viscosity and product temperature are also important factors. Clogged strainers reduce output and cause production delays. Typically, the use of a duplex strainer or dual strainer is needed. This will allow one strainer to be cleaned while the other one continues operation. The right inline strainer will maintain the integrity of the product without compromise to quality, safety or cost.

Strainers are an essential component that ensures product sanitation and purity in many industries. That’s why they come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes and are customizable depending on flow rate, temperature, size of particles and application.
