Custom Fabricated Stainless Steel Strainers with PVC Caps

A customer from the parts washing industry approached Custom Filtration Inc. to manufacture  2500 custom stainless steel strainers. We started by slitting wire mesh and mesh material for the strainers using a custom built slitter. We then die cut, rolled and resistance welded the components using our own custom made machinery. The strainer's PVC thread and cap ends were then molded. We were able to hold tightest tolerances of ±.025" throughout the entire manufacturing process.

The finished custom fabricated 304 stainless steel strainers had an outside diameter of 2.885", measured 4.565" long, and were delivered to the client's Houston, TX location.
