Actually there isn’t any since a strainer is, in reality, a coarse filter. The question is then one of semantics. Generally it is assumed that if the particle to be removed is not visible to the naked eye, the unit is filtering, and if the particle is visible, the unit is straining. The average human eye can detect a specific particle between 50 and 70 micros. Most people cannot see anything smaller than 325 mesh, or 44 microns. Since 200 mesh is equivalent to 74 microns, a general rule would be that if the screening device is coarser than 200 mesh, it is a strainer and if it is finer than 200 mesh it is a filter. One of the best uses for a strainer is in conjunction with a filter. By installing a strainer directly ahead of a filter, the large heavy pieces which would quickly clog the filter are removed. The filter is then free to do its major job of fine particle removal and does not have to be cleaned so often.

Need to change fuel filter on 1996 Buick Regal 3.8 Where is it located on car, how do I replace and what is "strainer " and does it come w/filter?


look under car follow fuel line you will find the filter.. buy one first so you know what you are looking for. its to replace once you find it. The "strainer" is an item that keeps gtrash from getting into the electric fuel pump.. you do not usually replace the strainer unless you replace the pump it requires removing the gas tank.

Gas filter for Nissan Altima2006


Like many late model cars the fuel system in this car doesn't use an in line filter anymore, this has been the case since the early 2000's, so there is no part number. The only filter in the system is the fine mess nylon screen at the intake to the fuel pump inside the gas tank.

Need to find where the fuel strainer goes on 2007 hyundai sonata


Did you go to buy a fuel filter and they gave you a strainer kind of filter?
Many vehicles now days do not have a servicable filter. They just use the sock, or strainer, that is inside the fuel tank.
Really does not make good sense to me because fuel pick ups have always had a type of strainer filter and the external servicable filter would still catch dirt. So now without that servicable external filter where does the dirt go.

Most likely your vehicle does not have an external filter and what you got was an in-tank filter.

Difference between black basket strainer 900 and regular strainer.also i want white. are there different sizes or universal.


Unless you have a special purpose sink all basket strainers are standard size. You should be able to use strainer from any manufacturer that has the color that you want. If you are doing this yourself make sure you use rubber gasket and fiber friction ring. These go on the underside of sink in between sink bottom and retaing nut. I would recommend you use a small amount of pure silicone caulking in between flange of strainer and sink surface. Be ready to wipe off excess caulking as soon as you get retaing nut snug as it starts to cure in about ten mins. I use paper towels and wipe till its clean. Hope this helps. Thanks

Diagram of gas filter assembly in gas tank


Unable to provide a diagram without a part number. Manufacturers are similar overall, but models may have differences.

Essentially though, your strainer is on the end of several inches of hose, and rests on the bottom of the tank. The strainer is able to move about depending on orientation of the saw.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2001 Mazda Protege 2.0 LX?


A 2001 Mazda Protege (actually, all models from 1999-2003 including the DX, LX, ES, Mazdaspeed, and Protege 5) does not have an inline fuel filter. The only fuel filter it has is a "strainer" or a "screen", which looks like a nylon mesh "sock". This strainer is connected to the fuel pump, located in the gas tank. Although this fuel strainer does not require periodic replacement, it is recommended that it be changed if you are replacing the fuel pump.

The fuel strainer attaches to the lower end of the fuel pump module. The fuel strainer is made of woven plastic. The functions of the fuel strainer are to filter contaminants and to wick fuel. The fuel strainer normally requires no maintenance. Fuel stoppage at this point indicates that the fuel tank contains an abnormal amount of sediment or contamination.

Hope help with this (remember rated and comment this help)..

FDW60 Dishwasher


HI
The strainer is located directly under the lower sprayer arm. When the strainer becomes clogged with food and detergent debris, the dishwasher may flood or overfill. On some dishwashers, the strainer is a plastic or metal component consisting of two semicircular halves. To remove this type of strainer, pry it up. On other dishwashers, the strainer is a one-piece component. To remove this type, remove the cap that holds the sprayer arm on its shaft. Then remove the sprayer arm and the strainer.

Wash the strainer in the kitchen sink with water and a mild household detergent. Use a fairly stiff brush to get all the debris out of the holes and slots in the strainer. Rinse the strainer well and replace it. If part of the strainer lifts out for regular cleaning, check it and clean it -- if necessary -- after each load of dishes is washed.

Strainer for drain pump


There is no filter that goes over the strainer. The strainer is just to catch coins and such that would lock up the pump.
