BSF - Fabricated Basket Strainer Housing

The BSF Series Fabricated Basket Strainer removes gross particles from a liquid stream. Often used as a pre-filter placed before finishing filtration equipment, the BSF is ideal for removing large amounts of solid matter from liquids such as water, coolants, resins, adhesives, solvents, paints and inks. A removable stainless steel basket allows easy cleaning and quick change out when heavy particle loading is present.
