The extended sock shaped mesh gasket offers up to 300% more open area for 300% more soil collection capability than conventional sanitary clamp screens. They provide greater flow for situations where a large amount of particulates are involved. Due to the large capacity and open screen area, sock screens require less service, therefore, reducing down time and costly change outs, a major consideration with inline pharmaceutical processing.
While protecting expensive processing pumps and equipment from foreign matter, sanitary sock screens are especially effective in decreasing pump wear and burnout while increasing energy conservation. Regularly used in the transfer of liquids from a bulk tank to a tank truck and/or in the opposite direction, sanitary sock screens are specifically designed for high volume applications with low pressure drop.
