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!
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.
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!
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 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
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.
Check out these two custom stainless steel Corny Keg Dry Hopper brewing filters. The one on the left is 21" tall and the middle is 18" tall. We set them next to our standard 11.5" Corny Keg Dry Hopper to show the difference in size. We can build these to nearly any custom height desired. They're also great for several other uses than just dry hopping. We've had customers use them for infusing flavors into various teas, coffee's, soups, and other liquids! With their removable tops and sealable vessels, they work great for lots of uses!
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.
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 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 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.
Thi 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.
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!
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.
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 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.
This filter is a solid sided 21" diameter by 3" deep stainless steel filter with 1/8" perforated stainless steel disc welded to the bottom. Like above it also has heavy duty grab handles installed on it as well.
This solid sided filter is 15" diameter by 3" tall with 4 hooks out to 19". The bottom is made of 1/4" perforated stainless steel and for handles it uses two rounded bar grab handles.
This filter is 19" diameter by 3" tall with (4) 2" wide hooks out to 23". The bottom is 1/16" perforated stainless steel. It also features two rounded bar grab handles.
Check out this sweet solid sided drum filter! It's a 19" diameter by 6" tall filter with 1/8" stainless steel mesh. 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 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.
So, if you're looking for a high quality custom made suction filter, Contact Us, we'd be happy to build one for you!
This is a cool set of suction filters that we built. They're 2" diameter x 10" tall. We wrapped one in 5 micron and the other in 43 micron. Behind the mesh is a 1/4" perforated stainless steel backer too. The fitting on the top is 3/4". They turned out really well!
These filters are both 2" diameter x 6" tall in 15 micron. The one on the left has the mesh wrapped on the outside while the one on the right has it wrapped on the inside. Both filters also feature a 1/4" perforated stainless backer for strength. The fitting on top is 3/4".
This is a 3" diameter x 7" tall suction filter in 300 micron with a perforated backer. The fitting is a 1.25" diameter female NPT at the top.
2" drum bung filters in 149 micron and 1/16" perforated stainless steel
2" drum bung filters in 1/4" perforated stainless with a suction tube and 600 micron drum bung filter with a suction tube and 1/4" perforated backer.
3" diameter x 5.75" tall suction filters. On the left is a pleated 600 micron filter with 1/4" perforated stainless. The one on the right is 1/16" perforated stainless.
3" diameter x 7" tall suction filters. Both in 600 micron pleated. The one on the right also has a by-pass valve on the bottom.
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.
