Hygienic Filters

Hygienic filters are used to filter particles that are capable of damaging pumps and other equipment within the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and chemical industries.

Part of our range of hygienic equipment, our filters feature a sanitary design consisting of a filter body with inlet and outlet, as well as a screen inside the body to retain particles that are equal or larger than the size of the screen opening.
