Strainer Stands

We offer standard, manual and automated strainer stands.

Automated stands contain more than one strainer and operate using pressure sensors. When the pressure differential reaches a set point in one strainer, valves divert flow to a second strainer and an alarm is triggered signaling a need to remove and clean the first strainer.

  • Fast, easy strainer removal
  • Simply remove one tri-clamp to access strainer stake

Meet or exceed USDA sanitary standards.

More about strainers and filters

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 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.

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.
