Filters and strainers are used in almost all industrial processes. They are used in hydraulic systems, oil systems, cooling systems, liquid waste disposal, water purification and coolant systems (to name a few applications). But what is the difference between a filter and a strainer? When do engineers select strainers rather than filters, or vice versa? In this course, you will learn the answer to all of these questions and a lot more. You will learn:

  • What defines a strainer and filter?
  • Different designs of filter. 
  • Different designs of strainer. 
  • How to select a suitable strainer or filter.
  • The advantages and disadvantages with filters and strainers.
