This Inline strainer is 12.25" in overall length and the main body is 3" in diameter. The inlet and outlet are 1.5" Tri Clover Compatible Flanges (compatible with 1" Tri Clover Compatible fittings as well) and the lid is clamped to the body with a 3" Tri Clover Compatible clamp. The permanent stainless steel mesh filter features 0.5mm pores; small enough to filter out a significant amount of trub amd hop material but large enough not to easily clog. Read about the trub strainer filter test results here.
Place after your pump and a before a plate chiller to reduce the amount of debris that makes it into the plate chiller and ultimately into your fermenter. The relatively large pore size still allows some trub through for healthy yeast and fermentation. The large 3" Tri Clover Compatible clamp between the body and the lid allow for easy disassembly and cleaning.
If you want or need finer straining, optional 0.2mm and 0.3mm strainer nets are also available. These nets slip over the fixed 0.5mm element to provide a second stage of filtration. The nets are woven from 304 stainless steel to provide years of service.
The inlet side of a brewery pump should not be restricted. Do not place in front of a brewery pump, only on the outlet side.
This is the original design with 0.5mm pores in the hard element.
