Basket strainer and perforated insert with filter media bags

Special Construction for High-Volume Process

Do you have a lot of particulate to strain from your process? Do you need a long run time without having to clean your strainer? If yes, Basket Strainers are an ideal solution for your process.

Sani-Matic Basket Strainers are specially constructed to strain particulates out of high-volume process streams. The innovative design includes a side inlet, which allows you to easily remove the basket for cleaning without disconnecting the line. Its durable construction means increased longevity in the field.

Sani-Matic offers both short and long models to meet your specific process needs. Our basket strainers are 3-A certified when using the perforated element. If 3-A certification is required, consult a Sani-Matic sales associate to ensure the configuration meets standards.
