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.

I purchased a Blanco waste strainer #441099. It is brown plastic for a granite kitchen sink. My plumber could not use it. said it didn't have a ring that holds the disposal flange. There is a groove...


This strainer is not for a garbage disposal. The strainer for the garbage disposal comes with the disposal. If you bought two of these for the sink, then that's why you have one left. The disposal has its own.

What is the difference between standard strainer and strainer for food erator? I bought a replacement sink wiht standard strainer, which does not seems to fit garbage disposal


If you need new sink strainer basket for disposal side of sink, you have to buy new disposal.

Each garbage disposal comes with its own strainer basket so that disposal can connect and seal.

First, the disposal strainer basket is installed, and then disposal lifts up and attaches from below.
A rubber gasket comes with new disposal.
Rubber gasket fits between disposal and strainer basket so that disposal seals correctly.

Photo below shows how disposal connects to strainer basket using steel connector ring under the sink.

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

I need a new franke sink basket strainer for my franke sink model PRX11021 - stainless steel. What is the model number that will fit this sink and can I order it online or go to a local store?


You should purchase a complete basket strainer assembly. Home Depot or Lowes have some very nice ones. They are a standard size.
Tell them it's for your kitchen sink.

Gap between basket & body of basket strainer


can you clarify that, i am not sure what part of a basket strainer dimension you are refering to. the dimensions of a basket strainer are related to the standards of the fixtures they are installed on. It has to be designed to work on different thickness of materials; thick materials such as cast iron or marble and thin materials like stainless steal and pressed steal. I have experiensed some strainers that do not meet this and are not deep enough to fit thick materials o r do not tighten enough to handle then materials.

How to Clean Pump Strainer basket


Turn the swimming pool pump off and wait for the water to drain from the strainer basket. You want to make sure that the pump is completely off before you proceed. Remove the screws or any items securing the lid of the strainer basket. Open the lid and pull out the strainer basket. Vacuum the strainer basket or scoop out any debris. You may want to run clear water through the basket to ensure you removed all debris. Feel toward the impeller and remove any clogs or obstructions preventing the impeller from working properly. Check the o-ring under the cover of the pump strainer housing. You may need to use a silicon lubricant to ensure a water-tight seal. Put the strainer basket back into the pump strainer housing and pour some water into the basket. Replace the lid and secure it in place. Turn the swimming pool pump on and check for proper pressure. If your pressure doesn't register, you may need to troubleshoot to find the problem.

Basket Strainer Specs Question


1\ Amount of free open area is the ratio of the open area through the strainer basket to the cross sectional area of the pipe. A good basket strainer should have a ratio of 4 to 1. 2\ Ease of basket removal is important because baskets may require frequent cleaning or replacing due to buildup. 3\ Compactness of the design saves you valuable space. A small strainer is less bulky and easier to handle. 4\ Availability of basket perforation sizes gives the strainers the flexibility to cope with a wide range of particle sizes.
