Spencer Strainer has introduced sanitary self-cleaning filters for process flows of up to 400 gpm. Constructed of 316-L stainless steel, the food grade strainers work continuously in a sealed environment.

There are no bags or elements in the food grade strainers to replace, so there is no inherent downtime for filter changes, the company says.

With no filter disposable elements to dispose of, it adds, the strainers are an environmentally friendly option which helps companies meet their sustainability goals.

Wedgewire or perforated screens of various openings are available and interchangeable, allowing one strainer to be used for multiple applications.

The units are said to be a reliable, cost-effective solution for many types of food processing applications, including peanut/almond butter, chocolate, pizza sauce/tomato sauce, cheese, orange juice, alcohol, and dairy products, as well as non-food products including oil, acrylic, polymers, paint, biofuel, toothpaste, caulk, and bath tissue.

Food grade models are available for process flows of 100 gpm and 400 gpm; they are rated at up to 180 psi and up to 400 PSI respectively. 3A sanitary designs also available.
