Tri Clamp side inlet strainers and inline strainers are available with 4 grades of fine mesh (300 microns, 177 microns, 149 microns, 100 microns), the lower the number, the less porous the mesh. The side inlet strainer is the preferred choice simply because one does not have to disconnect the whole assembly to replace or clean the screen mesh. The inline strainer performs the same function, but mounts more similar to a spool with both ends clamped into a fitting. It is recommended that a strainer be placed after a pump, but prior to a plate chiller to reduce the debris entering the chiller, and ultimately the fermentation tank. The mesh is designed to be porous enough so as not to clog easily, but still trap large solids from passing through.
The 150 mesh (300 micron) screen are a plain dutch weave with a 65 nominal, 95-100 absolute micron rating. Meaning that a long and super thin particle that is 65 x 90 microns could technically squeeze through, but on average, most particles aren't perfect rentangles.
Warning: Do not run backwards as you risk blowing out your mesh filter. The correct flow direction puts pressure on the mesh screen pushing against the interior perf screen which provides support.
Notice: The strainer screens are designed for Inline Strainers only.
