Better Protect Your Engine with High-Quality Industrial Strainer Baskets

Tools left out by mechanics, birds being sucked into the air intake, or loose screws could damage many components in the engine or other downstream systems of the airplane, military jet, or submarine you manufacture. That’s why you must incorporate reliable and effective filtration parts to prevent damage to the pumps, valves, and other critical engine or application components of the system you’re designing.

Industrial strainer baskets are the ideal solution for filtering out large particles greater than 100 microns. They help catch those contaminants before they damage your critical systems and potentially hurt the people onboard your vessel or aircraft.

And the best industrial filter baskets are the ones we make from high-quality metal. Copper-nickel, brass, bronze, and stainless steel basket strainers can withstand extreme conditions and are easy to clean. That’s why it’s the only type we make! We work closely with customers to ensure that our screens, strainers, and metal edge-type filter elements meet the precise specifications required by their application. Therefore, we’re able to deliver a final product in a cost-efficient and timely manner.

The Industries that Use Us as a Basket Strainer Manufacturer

Baskets and strainers are workhorses for industrial filtration and are ideal for dealing with large debris. They also typically have a larger surface area and are much easier to service and clean than smaller metal mesh filters. We can also incorporate magnets into larger strainers to capture metallic particles in some applications. These are just some reasons why more industries turn to us as their basket filter manufacturer. We custom engineer baskets and strainers for nearly all aerospace, marine, defense, and industrial applications. Just let us know the parameters of your project, and we’ll get to work designing a prototype for you to approve!



Industrial strainer baskets are designed with robust materials to handle the harsh conditions of aviation applications and can effectively filter out large particles. They help improve engine performance and reduce maintenance costs.

Our industrial basket filters ensure no large contaminants can enter your oil, hydraulic, air, and water filter systems, preventing unexpected breakdowns due to clogs caused by these large particles. That means your vessel runs more efficiently for longer.




Special “ground-only” air intake screens for aircraft help reduce maintenance costs for military jets. This strainer’s principal objective is to keep tools, birds, and other debris from entering the aircraft engine through the air intake during engine servicing and storage.



We can construct industrial filter basket strainers in virtually any size or configuration. The three critical design parameters are generally flow, pressure drop, and particle size. So let us know your requirements, and we’ll get to work designing it!

Why Should Your System Be Using Strainers & Baskets?

As a premier basket-type strainer manufacturer, we produce a wide range of filters that use perforated metals or more robust, coarser wire mesh than is typically used in wire cloth. These filters are ideal for use in last chance, fuel wash flow, scavenge lube oil, and other systems requiring protection for downstream components.

Apart from being robust and reliable, our industrial strainer baskets ensure your critical components remain free from contamination and wear and tear caused by particles. This high quality makes your air or watercraft less likely to experience mechanical problems and improves your reputation as a manufacturer.

Protect Your Systems

Typically, strainers filter out particles that are 100 microns or larger. These particles can cause severe damage to pumps, valves, and other significant components of your critical systems if not filtered. But if you can safely and efficiently prevent them from entering your systems, you can avoid unexpected breakdowns for your vessel or aircraft.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

Industrial basket strainers are designed for easy removal and cleaning. The large surface area on your strainer makes cleaning a breeze, ensuring your water, hydraulic, or oil system stays free of large particles. Choose us to design your stainless steel strainer baskets for industrial use and enjoy the ability to maintain and clean your basket filter easily.

Withstand Extreme Conditions

With over 80 years of experience working as a basket filter manufacturer for the aerospace, marine, defense, and industrial industries, we know how to make filters that can withstand extreme conditions. Because we make our strainers without using plastics, resins, or fibers, they do not break down or degrade in performance over time. That means they have the high performance your customers demand.

Reduce Maintenance Costs

Not only can we supply any type of basket or strainer you may need for your project, but our industrial filter baskets can help reduce the future maintenance costs of your vessel or aircraft. And if you are known as the designer or manufacturer of a plane, ship, or submarine that doesn’t require much maintenance, you’ll have one of the best reputations in the market.

Customized to Your Needs

Whether you need a copper-nickel or a stainless-steel basket strainer, one as tall as six feet or as small as 1/8 inch, we can help! We’ll customize your metal strainer basket to your desired size and specifications. We can even incorporate magnets into the strainer to capture metallic particles that may damage components within the system, so you can rest assured you have the best filtration element for large particles.
