Thank you so much, this filter rocks and arrived so quickly. We started using it today with the older infusion and wow,
the draining is SO easy now. Thank you! - Corrie, www.hurrawbalm.com
Check out some of the cool custom projects below that we've produced!
We sell our filters all over the world. This particular shipment went to a brewing specialty store in Norway. It consisted of 150 6x14 brew filters and 250 corney keg dry hoppers. That's a lot of brew filters!
Two hooks are mounted on top of the filter at the edges and stick straight out to the side to grip the edge of the brewing vessel. This is our most common style of hooks for hop spiders due to it's ease of use, it's built in handles, and it's adaptability to different diameter brewing vessels.
These are brewing filters that nest together. They use what we call a straight side hook. One is an 8" x 8" brewing filter while the other is a 10" x 10" beer brewing filter.
We have a 4" diameter, a 6" diameter, and an 8" diameter filter here with straight side hooks. What's cool is that they can stack inside one another. They're a perfect fit!
This one, built for Gimpy Finch Brewing, in Alexandria, VA, worked out great! Gimpy Finch said that they were able to use about 2 ounces of hops when brewing a 2.5 gallon batch in a 5.5 gallon kettle. They said that the press plate drastically reduces losses to hop absorption and allows the wort to be periodically expelled from the hops during the boil, potentially improving utilization. We also built them a Brew In A Basket for their grain brewing as well (Filter #412I below).
90B / 90C
90B has a set of short flat tabs with holes in the ends that allow it to be hung in a keggle. This is nice if you want your filter to hang down inside the opening but still remain centered.
90C has a set of extra long tabs on it that allow it to span the entire length of a kettle and even has a set of hooks that extend through the handle openings to help keep it secure and centered.
This "keggle" filter has extra long tabs with hooks at the end that allow it to sit perfectly centered over the opening of a custom cut keggle. Notice that the rim of the keggle has been cut away leaving only the handles.
This is a 14" diameter x 34.5" tall hop spider in 400 micron with center hanging tubes and rods to fit a 21.5" diameter kettle. We also added a swing handle to it as well for the customer. Really tall filters can really benefit from this top style. The filter turned out great! We can add center hanging tubes and rods to pretty much any filter we make allowing you to use your filter in all sorts of different sized kettles. The flexibility it offers rocks! It turned out great!
This is an 8" diameter x 18" tall 300 micron filter with a swing handle on it. This one has the standard straight side hooks on it too making it great for use in a kettle or by itself.
This is a 10" diameter x 14" tall 300 micron filter with a swing handle on it. It's a really clean build and with the heavy duty swing handle it makes it really great to use for brewing.
We built two of these for a company. They're 6" diameter x 9" tall in 1000 micron with a 1/2" flange at the top. We also drilled (10) 3/8" drain holes around the top ring along with (3) evenly spaced 5/32" holes in the top flange. The filter is used to filter out resin at Zoltek.
This is a cool flanged top filter. It's 11.25" diameter x 9" tall. It's made from 234 micron and has a 1/2" flange at the top with a lifting bar across the center.
We can mount custom tops to a filter. In most cases customers will send these in and we'll build the filter to fit it and weld it all together. It's great for when you need a filter to work with your exact fitting!
This filter was pretty cool. The customer shipped us a ferrule that they wanted installed on the top of the filter and we built their filter around it. The filter is 4" diameter (with a 4" flanged ferrule) by 10" tall in 300 micron stainless steel. It really turned out well!
Our customer loved it so much that he took a video of it in use & sent it our way. Check it out!
This is a 9" diameter x 18.5" tall 300 micron hop filter with heavy duty side supports, a bar across the bottom, straight side hooks, a swing handle, 3/4" feet, and a press plate with a 24" handle. It can be used for brewing hops and then the press plate can be used to press the hops as well.
This filter is awesome! It's 14.25" diameter and stands over 58" tall. It has a removable top, removable bottom, and splits apart at the center. The bottom is made from 1/2" perforated stainless steel with a 600 micron mesh inside and a large adjustable foot. We connected the bottom to the filter with a large chain so that they could pop it loose, empty the filter, and not lose the bottom in the mess that falls out of it. To make cleaning easy, we made it split apart in the center too. The mesh inside the whole filter is 600 micron with a 1526 micron backer for strength. The top is also 600 micron with a 1/8" perforated backer. We also added 4 long drop tabs at the top that the customer set to the proper length once it arrived at their shop. The filter itself is designed to fit through a 15" inner diameter manhole in a large brewing tank and rest on the bottom of the tank with the foot. The tabs at the top are set to hook to the side of the manway opening as well to keep it centered. Overall, it's just a really cool filter! We built it for Cajun Brewing in Louisiana.
In it's basic form, a Brew In A Basket Filter can handle up to 75 lbs of wet grain. Brewing grain typically doubles in weight when wet, so that means a limit of about 37 to 38 lbs of grain. For heavier grain loads we can add a perforated stainless steel bottom underneath the mesh to give added strength. That's usually good up to about 125 lbs of wet grain. For grain loads over 125 lbs, we recommend a basket with a complete perforated stainless steel backing.
We can customize our Brew-In-A-Baskets to fit your unique needs with such things as lifting bars over the opening, handles on the top, holes in the top ring for carabiners or chains, flanges on top, draining hooks on the side, eyelets on top, and can even build them with part of the filter "cut out" to custom fit your kettle.
We can even suspend your filter in the center of your kettle, add drop hooks to the top so that it sits lower than the kettle opening, or even build the filter tapered or with a cone on the bottom. Plus, we can add several more customizations to them! As we say, if you can draw it, we can probably build it!
Below are some awesome examples of just some of the Brew In A Basket filters we've built! Browse through them to give you an idea of some of our capabilities and to give you ideas for how you would like yours built. Then feel free to contact us for a quote.
These are called Brew In A Basket (BIAB) stainless steel brewing filters. Commonly used for brewing grain in large kettles in beer brewing, they can be customized in nearly every way possible. We typically build them with a heavy duty swing handle at the top, include four side supports, a heavy duty cross brace on the bottom, and can be built with feet on the bottom. For beer brewing, we typical receive requests to built them out of 400 micron stainless steel, however we've built them in several different micron sizes as well. This particular Brew In A Basket is 9" diameter by 13" deep and included 3" feet on the bottom.
2) I love the standoff design on the bottom; made the filter very sturdy and eliminated the concern of scorching the grain during the mash.
3) The 10" separation between the handles was plenty sufficient for stirring. We had no issue with them being in our way or anything.
4) Since the entire filter is metal, we were thinking the handles would get "hot" since the whole thing was sitting in the 150F water for 90 minutes. To our surprise, the handles stayed really cool to the touch. They were slightly heated, but nothing that bare hands couldn't handle.
5) Having both the handles on the side worked out great when lifting the filter out of the water. I liked the "flushness" of the handle design and my buddy and found it really easy when lifting it straight up. Since our pot is about 14 inches tall, having the handles positioned flush with the top of the filter were allowed plenty of lifting room. I think had we used the pale type handle, we would have had to reach up higher when lifting.
6) The J hook clips were fantastic! I think we have our drop too low, but the concept worked just like we expected. We had no issues with spillover and the basket sat really stable on the clip extensions. The clips were also easy to install as they could be turned sidewise to fit in between the filter and the pot wall and then turned once the 2" extension cleared the filter bottom. This way, we never really had to fully lift the filter out of the pot to install the clips.
Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the filter and the workmanship put into it!
Thanks so much again!" - Chris Wenske
This is a really customized Brew In A Basket that we built for a client. It's 14" Diameter by 19" Tall in 400 micron stainless mesh with 4.5" tall feet. On the side of the filter we installed hooks 3" from the top and 7" from the top. The u-shaped support can be placed on top of the kettle and the filter side hooks mount into it allowing the filter to sit up out of the kettle at different lengths. The custom press plate also features a really long handle that can be used to press the material down into the bottom of the filter. It turned out really nice!
This is a Brew In A Basket built to 15" diameter x 15" tall in 400 micron brewing 21 lbs of grain in a 19" diameter 20 gallon turkey fryer. The side hooks are set at 6" up from the floor, or with the 2" feet, 4" up the side of the basket. The 2" feet are used to keep the bottom of the filter up off of the bottom of the kettle to help prevent grain scorching when using his fire heated burner. Our customer absolutely LOVES how well it works!
This is a custom designed honey filter. It's 17" diameter x 16.75" tall and is made from 300 micron stainless steel. The top has a heavy duty 20" flange and there's 2" of solid sided stainless at the top. Across the top is a heavy duty lifting handle to make removing it easier. It also features heavy duty side supports and a cross brace on the bottom. The lid is all stainless steel and includes a handle. The filter can handle up to 60 lbs of honey and was built to be extremely robust.
When we build a cutout filter, we can ship one of the D-ring sections of the filter to you to check for fitment if you'd like. In most cases if you've measured accurately it's not an issue, but it is an option. Just let us know when you order.
This is a 15" x 15" Brew-in-a-basket with a 2" cutout on the side. It's made from 400 micron stainless steel mesh and has a large swing handle on it.
This is a custom built BIAB. It features a cut-out on the side to allow a chiller to fit into the brewing kettle. It also featured heavy duty handles on top and feet on the bottom.
This is a 13.75" Diameter x 17.25" Tall 400 micron Brew In A Basket with a 2" cutout and press plate. It also received a set of draining hooks with U-support too! It's nice & tall and turned out great!
This is a really nice 15" diameter x 18" tall Brew In A Basket that features a 2 1/4" side cutout in 400 micron stainless steel mesh. It has 2.5" feet on the bottom and includes a standard swing handle.
This filter is 12" diameter x 9 3/8" tall with a 2" cutout in 400 micron. It also features a really cool removable internal swing handle. This way the handle can be removed when it's in the kettle so that it stays out of the way and then when it's needed can be easily put back into place.
This is a really sweet custom BIAB. It's 13" diameter by 13.5" tall, has 400 micron mesh, draining tabs mounted 6" up the side, includes 2.5" feet, and features a 3" cutout. This was designed to fit a 10 gallon Mega Pot 1.2 that was 14" diameter x 16" tall with a 1/2" lip at the top. It also had a heating element, a trub dam, and a temperature probe on the inside. To make building the filter easy, our customer created some templates of the bottom of his kettle out of cardboard and drew exactly how he wanted the filter to be right onto the cardboard template. As you can see by looking at the inside of his mega pot, there's a lot of things sticking in the bottom and sides that we needed to work around. We were able to build the feet such that they fit perfectly and the cutout was cut just right too. What makes this one really cool is that we built a custom sized press plate to go with it! It turned out great and the customer absolutely loved how well it worked!
This is a cool cutout BIAB! It has a 15" outer diameter, stands 16 7/8" tall, is made from 400 micron and has a 1.5" cutout. What's cool is the four drop hooks mounted to the top! Each hook is 3 1/4" tall and reaches out to 16 7/8" with a 1/2" tall hook at the end. It was built to fit in a kettle with an inner diameter of 15 5/8", an outer diameter of 16 3/4", and still fit underneath a lid with a 17" diameter that goes on top of the kettle. 412I
This is a BIAB with a 1" cutout. It's 10" diameter x 10" tall with 2.5" feet and also has a set of 4 J-hooks that are 1.5" long. We also built a custom press plate to go with it. It was designed to fit an SS Brewing Technologies 5.5 gallon kettle that's 10 15/16" inner diameter and has an inside height of 13 5/16" tall with a 17/64" lip. A thermometer and fitting also protrudes into the center of the kettle as well and a trub dam is installed on the bottom. In addition to this filter, we also built a 4" diameter x 11" tall 400 micron filter with a mini-press plate as well (filter 40F above).
Our customer, Gimpy Finch Brewing in Alexandria, Virginia, loves the results! They said that they were able to brew about 6.5 lbs of grain and noted that using the press plate reduced losses due to grain absorption by about 1/3.
This is a really tall eyebrow filter. It's designed to fit inside of a 19.5" inner diameter kettle, stands 26" tall, has 1/4" tabs at the top and is made from 43 micron mesh. The eyebrow was 7" wide at it's widest point. It also includes a really nice customized press plate to fit inside of it too with a 28" long handle on it.
This filter is designed to fit a 38" diameter kettle with a 1" lip. It's 12" tall, is 15" wide at it's widest area, and is made with 149 micron stainless steel mesh. It has some heavy duty side supports on the back, sides, and bottom. and a hole to mount a piercing bolt right up the center. It's used by Pespi in one of their plants to break open used or damaged plastic bags of soda concentrate into a large drum. The bag piercing bolt was installed by our customer after we shipped it to them but we provided a heavy duty mount to mount it to on the bottom. It turned out really nice.
This is a really sweet cone shaped Brew In A Basket! It has a 19" outer diameter at the top, stands 17.5" tall, features an 8" tall cone on the bottom that tapers down to 6" outer diameter, has 4 hooked tabs at the top with eyelets mounted to it and is made out of 100 micron stainless steel mesh. But what makes it really cool is that we electropolished it! This makes our 304 stainless steel just absolutely shine! It gives the bar stock a nice, shiny matte finish. It also eliminates any coloring in any of the welds and also makes the mesh shine too. It turned out awesome! We built it for an organic skin care company in Vermont called Tata Harper
This is a 10.5" diameter x 25" tall Brew In A Basket in 300 micron with a removable lid and side loop. The filter has a heavy duty mid ring support and a bar across the lid for strength. The loop is to allow it to be lowered down into a tank through a manhole. We built it for Green Wolf Brewing Company. It turned out great!
This is a 12" diameter x 30" tall Brew In A Basket in 500 micron with a removable perforated lid with 500 micron mesh welded underneath plus two side hooks mounted to the top ring. We also added a mid ring support for added structural stability. We built six of these beauties for Bare Nutrition Company in Jamaica.
These are similar to our corny keg filters above however, they only stand 4 inches tall. They were built for use in an ultra sonic cleaner to keep parts contained and utilized 300 micron mesh on the sides and bottom.. We put a standard corny keg filter beside them to give you an idea of how much smaller these were.
It was a pretty complex project, but we enjoy building complex filters and our customers love the results! Need a custom built false bottom? Contact us
We'd be happy to help built it for you!
This is a custom 15" stackable mashtun false bottom filter. It's made with 300 micron stainless mesh, has a 1/2" tube port to connect to an output valve, and can be used to replace a false bottom in a brewing kettle. The two filters "pancake" together making them easy to remove and clean separately when done.
To build it, we start with (2) 3/4" tall rings. The bottom ring being 12" diameter. The top ring slides
into it the bottom ring fairly tight to help create a seal. 300 micron screen is then welded to both rings.
We then drill a hole hole in the top screen that's located 5" in from the side and weld a washer with a 1/2" inner diameter over top of the hole
(this is where the dip tube goes through). We welded a bar in under the screen that acts as a support for the washer and also keeps the two screens
separated to create the pocket for the liquid to drain into. Then we added (4) evenly spaced stand offs to the bottom ring that keep the
bottom ring 1/4" up off the bottom of the kettle as well. It turned out great and our customer loves how well it works!
He even did a little write-up on the filter on The Electric Brewery forum.

This filter started life as a standard Brew In A Basket filter for cold brewing coffee. It's 15" Diameter x 15" Tall in 74 micron with a 1/2" perforated backer. It also has 5" feet and a swing handle. While it's an awesome filter to start with, we decided to get it electro polished, and wow! What a difference! The picture on the top left is the before shot. Looks nice, but then after electropolishing, wow! Talk about impressive! Every piece of this filter shines! All of the welds looks shiny, the mesh is shiny, the side is shiny, and even the feet look awesome!
This is a really sweet electro polished cone shaped Brew In A Basket! It has a 19" outer diameter at the top, stands 17.5" tall, features an 8" tall cone on the bottom that tapers down to 6" outer diameter, has 4 hooked tabs at the top with eyelets mounted to it and is made out of 100 micron stainless steel mesh. Again, a beautiful filter in it's own right, but then after it was electro polished it took on a whole new light! This makes our 304 stainless steel just absolutely shine! It gives the bar stock a nice, shiny matte finish. It also eliminates any coloring in any of the welds and also makes the mesh shine too. It turned out awesome! We built it for an organic skin care company in Vermont called Tata Harper
This is another great example of what electro polishing does to weld marks. This is a metal ring with mesh welded onto it that we built for a customer. It was gong onto our customers brew kettle as a lid and he wanted it to look nice & shiny instead of the dull look that 304 stainless can sometimes have. So, we built the ring, welded the mesh to it, and then sent it out to be electro polished. It turned out incredible! Not only did the mesh come back nice & shiny, but the edges of the ring did too! Plus, if you look at where the mesh is welded to the ring, the weld marks are even shiny! Prior to electro polishing the weld marks typically are dark and very easy to spot. But after this went through, you could hardly tell where they were! Just really, really impressive to see!
We occasionally cut out metal art at the shop and wanted to see what electro polishing would do to one of the pieces. As you can see, it made a huge difference! The heat marks are gone, the grinding marks are significanly reduced, and the finish is much shinier! It's amazing how well it improves the finish!
This filter is for cold brewing coffee. It's designed to fit inside a 55 gallon stainless steel drum. It's 21" diameter by 34" tall, features a heavy duty 1/2" perforated exterior with a 74 micron stainless steel mesh screen welded on the inside. It also features 4 heavy duty lifting eyelets welded to the top. With the perforated stainless steel exterior, it can easily handle 150 to 200 pounds of product to be filtered.
This filter is designed to specifically fit an SS Brew Tech 50 Gallon Kettle. Our customer shipped his 50 gallon kettle to our shop & we built the filter to fit it perfectly. The filter is a 23" Max OD x 23.75" Tall (26" tall w/ eylets and draining rails). It's made from 74 micron mesh with a 1/2" perforated stainless backer and internal mesh support. It also has (4) eyelets on top and bottom and features a set of draining rails on the bottom. The draining rods are pretty cool in that you can lift the filter up out of the kettle, slide the draining rods into place so that they mate up with the draining rails and then let the filter back down to fully drain into the kettle. The bottom eyelets also make it great to hook another pulley system to for tipping the filter to empty out the spent coffee grains. Our customer liked it so much that they've ordered several more too!
This is a 19" diameter x 19" tall 74 micron cold brew coffee brewing filter. It features a perforated side and bottom, an internal mesh support, four heavy duty eyelets at the top for lifting t out of a brewing kettle when full, a heavy duty swing handle for lifting it when empty, and a set of heavy duty 2" round bar feet on the bottom. It's ideal for kettles with an inside diameter of about 20" and an inside depth of about 23" to 24" deep. It turned out really nice!
This is an 18" diameter x 34" tall cold brew coffee filter built for Black Hand Coffee Company in Virgina It's made from 74 micron stainless mesh, features a perforated stainless backer on the side and bottom, has heavy duty eyelets for lifting and includes a lockable lid on top. It went into a vessel that was 25" diameter and 47" tall and was designed to handle 100 lbs of dry coffee grounds or 300 lbs wet. It turned out great!
This coffee filter is for hot brewing coffee. It's 10" diameter, stands 7" tall and features a locking lid with 3 securing latches. The mesh is 5 micron stainless steel that's supported with a 400 micron stainless backer.
This filter is a 6" tall filter that's made from 100 micron stainless steel mesh. It's used for adding flavoring to cold brewed coffee. The top spins off and flavoring can be added to the inside. It's then placed down inside the coffee brew and infuses the coffee with whatever has been placed inside the filter. Like our brewing dry hoppers, we've knicknamed this one a coffee hopper.
These filters are 4" diameter by 10" tall and feature 15 and 43 micron stainless steel mesh. The mesh is so fine and flexible that it requires side supports down each side to keep structural rigidity. They also featured our standard side tabs at the top to make them easy to hook onto a kettle.
This is a solid sided soup filter for dispensing herbs, spices, and other items into soup. It's 5" diameter by 12" tall, features 1/8" mesh on top and bottom, and has a removable latching top lid to keep the spices and such contained within the filter. It was built for a noodle parlor for some soup that they produce with it.
Our customer liked the filter so much that they asked for another one, only they wanted it a little shorter and instead of the 1/8" mesh they requested 1/8" perforated metal. We also added a slick hook on the side for them to pull the filter out of their soup kettle with. They loved it and even went so far as to call it their "bombproof filter". Yep! We build them tough!
The filter is 12" diameter and stands 36" tall. It's made with 300 micron 304 stainless steel mesh and features a solid and removable top and bottom to make loading, unloading, and cleaning the filter an absolute breeze! To make it easy to lower the filter into a kettle, it has two heavy duty eyelets mounted to the top of it too.
This filter was built for a brewing company in Colorado. It's 10.5" diameter x 36" tall, is made with 300 micron mesh, features heavy duty side supports and a heavy duty snap top lid. To make it easy to remove from a brewing kettle we also added some handy 1" x 1" rounded side hooks. It also features heavy duty 2" feet on the bottom to keep it off the bottom of the brewing kettle. It turned out really nice.
This is a 20" diameter x 28" tall 400 micron filter with a 1/2" perforated stainless steel backer and an internal mesh support on the inside. We also installed 3" heavy duty round bar feet on the bottom of it as well. The filter fit perfectly into a standard 55 gallon Rubbermaid BRUTE garbage can.
This is a 12" diameter x 18.5" tall filter made in 149 micron with a 1/2" perforated stainless backet. It features a heavy duty top ring as well as four heavy duty lifting eyelets.
This is a 17.5" outer diameter x 27" tall filter made with 1/2" perforated stainless steel. The inside is lined with 400 micron stainless mesh making it a double lined filter. We also added 4 heavy duty eyelets to it as well making it an extremely heavy duty filter.
This is a 13.5" Diameter x 24" Tall 400 micron filter with a 1/2" perforated stainless steel backer. The top has (4) 3/8" holes drilled in the top ring and (2) center hanging bars mounted across the top with one end of the bars having a 1 5/8" drop in them. The filter is designed to sit inside an angled opening in a large domed top tank. We built it for Noble Stein Brewing Company in Pennsylvania.
The filter above is an 18" diameter by 18" tall stainless steel filter made with 1/8" perfoated heavy duty stainless steel. It featured two heavy duty lifting handles as well to make it easier to remove from a brewing pot.
The filter above is very similar to #806. It's a 18.75" diameter x 18.75" tall stainless steel filter made with 1/8" perforated stainless steel. It features two heavy duty lifting handles and four heavy duty hooks at the top to support it in a vessel.
This is a really cool set of filters that we built! They're a set of 21" diameter by 12" tall filters made from 1/8" perforated stainless steel. We also built a really nice custom set of press plates to go with them too! (check out how shiny they turned out!) The filters would be used to press material with so we added extra supports to the top (8 in total) to make it really robust. They turned out really well!
This filter is pretty cool. It's 21" diameter x 12.5" tall and is made of 1/4" perforated stainless steel. It has four 2" drop tabs at the top and 4" tall rounded bar grab handles. We also polished all of the welds to give it a really clean, shiny look. Turned out great!
This was a whole batch of perforated stainless baskets we built for a customer. We used 1/4" perforated stainless steel and built the filters in various sizes. Everything from a 12" diameter to a 10" diameter with varying heights. We used extra thick 1/4" bar stock for the handles on these too. We also used a special welding technique to keep the handles from falling out of their holes as well. Being made from perforated stainless steel, these will easily be able to handle massive amounts of weight too!
This is a 16.25" diameter x 6" tall filter built from 1/4" perforated stainless steel. It also has a heavy duty swing handle on it as well. It's a great heavy duty design that can withstand a lot of abuse and weight.
This is a 14.5" diameter x 15" tall flanged filter built in 1/4" perforated stainless steel. It features an 18" diameter heavy duty flange at the top with (2) round grab bars mounted in the opening. The filter had to withstand up to 35 lbs of brass shells tossing around inside the filter inside a big cement mixer. So, we built it tough! We built it for a company that reloads brass shells, Weatherford Reloading in Weatherford, Oklahoma. It turned out great!
Waste Water Treatment Facility Filters
The filters above were built for a waste water treatment facility in North Dakota. The first is a heavy duty filter insert. It's 28" in diameter by 28" tall and has a heavy duty 30" flange on the top. We used 1/8" thick perforated stainless steel with 1/2" holes and lined the inside with 177 micron stainless steel mesh. The filter needs to withstand a lot of pressure and abuse so it also has two side supports all the way around it.
The second and third filters are heavy duty filter inserts as well. They're each 6.75" diameter and stand 27.5" tall. The filter is made with 1/4" heavy duty perforated stainless steel and the insides are lined with 300 micron stainless steel mesh. Heavy duty flanges at the top were also required as well as hefty handles welded across the top openings as well. The filters are built to witstand the day to day use that a commercial waste water treatment facility may see and are built really tough.
These were a special set of filters that were designed for a seafood processing plant for their drains. They had to be extremely tough and had to fit a whole set of drains in their floors. They were 3.5" diameter x 8" tall and were made from heavy duty 1/4" perfoated stainless steel. Then we added 7" and 9" heavy duty flanges as well as handles across the top of each of them to make them easy to retreive from the drains and clean.
Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Methoxide Strainer
This was another methoxide filter that we built. It was 34" long by 12" diameter with a 100 micron stainless steel mesh. It's used to fill with catalyst, place inside a tank, and then cycle methanol through it. We built a heavy duty handle into the top of it so that it could be crane lifted out of one tank and into another. It's a really robust filter!
The filter above was built for a methoxide mixing tank. The catalyst is added directly into the filter and methanol is pumped into the filter to dissolve the catalyst making methoxide. This allows only dissolved lye to enter the reaction vessel and keeps the solid catalyst out of the mixture. One of our customers that we built a similar filter for reports that it works extremely well!
Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Drum Filters
The stainless steel filters above were custom made for a client that needed very deep drum filters.
This drum filter is 22" diameter by 5" deep with 177 micron stainless mesh. The customer needed to have handles on the filter to make it easier for the workers that would use it to move it from one drum to another.
This drum filter is a 22" diameter by 12" deep filter made with 100 micron stainless steel mesh. It also features four heavy duty side supports to give it a rigid structure.
This filter is an 18" diameter by 5.5" deep 1/8" mesh stainless steel drum style filter with 6 tabs, side supports, and a cross brace built into it to support up to 100+ lbs of heavy material. The side braces and cross brace on the bottom make it an exceptionally sturdy filter!
This filter is a 19" diameter by 18" tall made from 1/4" stainless steel mesh. It featured 24" tabs at the top to support it in the top of a drum.
This filter is pretty unique. It's 20" diameter x 20" tall. We built it out of 800 micron stainless mesh and included two really cool side handles along with two side hooks and a swing handle. It turned out really well!
This is a really cool filter! It's 21" diameter x 18" tall and made in 100 micron mesh. Attached to it are two 19" long double handles. The pictures don't show it, but it's massive with those two handles attached to it! Turned out really nice!
This is a set of 5 stacking filters. The filters from smallest to largest micron are 43, 74, 120, 177, 234 micron. The 43 micron has a 1000 micron backer. The largest filter had the smallest micron and the smallest had the largest micron. The sizes were 24" diameter x 26" tall, 23" x 24", 22" x 22", 21" x 20", and 20" diameter x 18" tall. We also added a cross brace to the bottom of the 234 micron filter as well as it would bear the most weight. All of the filters but the biggest have a set of 4 tabs that extend out to 24.5". We also built a heavy duty stand for the filters to fit on too that was 25" diameter with a 2" band, a cross brace, and 3" feet. They all fit together on a nice, stacked unit and turned out great. We built them for Spot On Brewing in California.
This is a set of 5 stacking filtrs. From biggest to smallest, an 18.5" x 17" in 43 micron, a 17" x 6" in 74 micron, a 15.5" x 15" in 100 micron, a 14" x 14" in 120 micron, and a 12.5" x 13" in 149 micron. All of them have a set of (4) 5" drop hooks that reach out to fit a 25" diameter vessel. We built them for Silver Sage Wellness, a medicinal marijuana company in Nevada. They turned out really nice!
These stainless steel drum filters were custom built for a waste vegetable oil filtering operation to stage filter the oil. Each one was a different micron size, width, and depth.
These are a set of 4 stacking heavy duty stainless steel filters. They all have 6 heavy duty tabs and side supports to allow them to bear a lot of weight. They're used by a biodiesel production facility to clean waste vegetable oil and fats that come into their facility. The top filter is 15" diamexter x 2" deep 800 micron filter. Next is a 17" diameter x 4" deep 600 micron filter followed by a 19" diameter by 6" deep 400 micron filter. The bottom filter is a large 21" diameter x 8" deep 177 micron filter.
These things are huge! The bigger filter is 27" diameter x 19" tall in 1000 micron and has 12 tabs that extend out to 30". It also has 6 side supports down the side as well. The smaller filter is 20" diameter x 14" tall in 1523 micron and also has 12 tabs that extend out to 30" as well as the 6 side supports as well. To say these things are heavy duty would be putting it lightly. Our customer uses them to screen oil and loves using them.
This is a set of 3 stacking filters. The smallest, a 12.5" diameter x 3" tall, is 100 micron, the middle, a 13.5" diameter x 4" tall, is a 74 micron, and the largest, a 14.5" diameter x 5" tall, is 43 micron. The tabs on the biggest one are 1" wide to handle the added weight of the two smaller filters. They're a really nice set!
These drum filters were a set of stacking filters that needed to sit lower in the drum than our standard ones sit. To accomplish this we installed 3" drop hooks onto the top of the filters. They turned out pretty nice when they were done!
This is a set of 3 stacking bucket filters. The bottom one is 74 micron, the middle is 177 micron, and the top one is 800 micron. We built them for the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences.
This is a cool set of stacking bucket filters. The larger filter is a standard Extreme Duty Bucket Filter in 15 micron with a 1000 micron backer. However, our customer wanted it to stick up out of the bucket a little bit so we welded the bucket tabs onto the side supports 1" down from the top. The smaller filter is a custom 8" diameter x 4" tall filter made out of 120 micron stainless mesh. The tabs on it also are set 1" down on the side as well to keep the bottom of it above the filter that it sits in. We built them to filter melted beeswax. They turned out really nice!
This is a 10.5" diameter x 2" tall 1/16" perforated stainless steel solid sided bucket filter. We used 2" wide tabs on it and gave it really beefy rounded bar grab handles.
This is a solid sided 21" diameter by 4" deep stainless steel filter with a 1/8" perforated stainless steel disc welded to the bottom. It also features two heavy duty grab handles for easy removal from drums. We built it for a fruit processing plant.

The bottom of the filter has a heavy duty cross brace installed for extra weight handling. On top are six hooked tabs and heavy duty grab handles. It looks great and is extremely durable!
These are a set of 177 micron and 400 micron solid sided bucket filters. The sides are 2" tall and the filters are 10.5" diameter. They have a handle across the opening to make them easy to add to a 5 gallon bucket. We built them for a honey producer. The honey is filtered through the 400 micron first and then through the 177 micron. Being solid sided, 100% of the honey goes through the bottom making it easy to fill the filter up and let the honey "drip through". They turned out really nice!
This drum filter was specially made to fit into a container that a mixer could still fit down through. We affectionately called it "The Pac-Man Filter". It's 21" diameter and has a heavy duty solid stainless side along with heavy duty stainless tabs. The mesh in the bottom is made from our strong 1/8" stainless steel mesh. It also features a cross brace in the bottom to give it added weight bearing strength as well. One very cool looking filter!
This bucket filter is an 800 micron filter with the tabs on the bottom instead of at the top. It's used for filtering honey. The handle at the top makes it nice and easy to move around when needed.
These are kind of interesting. They're bucket filters made from 1/4" mesh but they're taller than our standard bucket filter. We also added 6 tabs at the top to give them extra strength to hold a lot of weight.
Above are some great examples of the different bucket filters we've built. Tall, short, course or fine filtration, if you can draw it, we can probably build it. We even stock a nice selection of these bucket filters! Check them out here: Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Bucket Filters.
This was a 7 inch diameter by 10 inch deep bucket style filter made from 1/8" stainless mesh with grab handles. This filter actually is being used by a large amusement park in California that has a mouse for a mascot. It's being turned into a light fixture of all things. We thought it turned out pretty nice.
These were a special set of heavy duty filters. They were 8" diameter by 4" deep and were made from heavy duty 1/8" stainless mesh. On the bottom was a tall cross brace purposely designed to extend beyond the bottom of the filter. We also welded a rounded handle to the top as a handle to make removing them from the container a breeze.
After the company tested it, they requested a few more tweaks to it and below is the result.
This is an 8" diameter x 8" tall filter with a different center filter. The center filter was custom designed with the same 1000 micron mesh and was much more open for breathing room in the soil. We also used rolled bar stock for the supports instead of flat bar stock, which meant the centering supports took up less room in the bottom of the filter.
We can build really small filters too! Check out this 1.5" Diameter x 11" Tall filter in 100 micron! We welded 3 tabs on the top of a flange for a perfect fit into our customers tank.
These were built to fit into drains. They were used to catch debris as it fell onto the floor.
This is a 20" x 20" box filter made out of 500 micron stainless steel. It has a draw pull on one end and two stainless bars to allow it to be placed into a drawer like cabinet.
This box filter was built for a BioPro 380 Automated Biodiesel Processor. It was made from 400 micron stainless steel and built to specifically fit down inside a BioPro to make filtering oil easier. The tabs keep it from falling in and the heavy duty box frame keeps it extremely rigid.
This pouch was 5" wide x 5" tall and made from 74 micron stainless mesh. The top edges were folded over and welded to create a safety edge and the sides were welded up as well to created a sealable filter.
This pouch is 5" wide x 4.5" tall with a 3/4" flap at the top. It's made from 100 micron stainless mesh and features a safety edge around all of the edges. We built them for a customer to use in the production of medical marijuana. They turned out great!

This is a really unique filter. It's 10 7/8" diameter by 28" long. It's triple pleated with two layers of 20 mesh with 200 mesh sandwiched between them. Then, it's wrapped in 4 mesh 0.048" stainless wire for added strength. Then, to give it even more strength, it features internal supports running from top to bottom. It's used in an ammonia based refrigeration unit. Yep! Pretty cool!
This is a locking drum lid we developed to accept puck style locks. The locking hasps are welded right to the drum ring. A cover slides on top of them and then the puck lock is installed onto the locking pins. This prevents the ring from coming off; even if the bolt is removed. We also installed a locking hasp to the top cover as well. This allows the customer to secure the opening from unauthorized dumping.
