Difference between a filter and a strainer:
The basic difference between a strainer and filter is the degree of filtration. Both are devices designed to remove particles from a liquid or gas. Strainers are intended to remove larger particles, and filters remove much smaller particles, which you normally can’t see. We often use Microporous membrane as element like 0.22um PP or PTFE material. Strainers are generally installed to protect your process equipment like valves, pumps, flow meters, etc. So strainers are often use perforated screen and wire mesh as filting element. There are enough holes on the screen with different diameter like 0.8mm to 5mm. Wire meshs are available from 10 mesh to 500 mesh. Some customers use the perforated screen only, but suggest use wire mesh and screen both.
