What micron barrel screen?

So I have to replace the screen prefilter in my settling barrel; I was given one that is plastic, and starting to tear, plus it's just nasty and full of poly. What micron size do y'all use? There's a few people selling them on Ebay, 150 & 400 micron seem to be the common sizes. I have absolutely no idea what I have now. The ones I'm looking at are: WVO Drum Filter Used Cooking Oil Basket Biodiesel Filter VEG Oil Strainer 150MIC | eBay


It's worth $80 to me to not have to do it myself. I am not a great welder, and by the time I got some galvanized steel into a decent circle, and bought stainless mesh, I'd rather pay someone to do it.

Any recommendations?

All I need to do is get the big chunks out so I have always used window screen. I just took some 1"x3" strapping & built a frame & attached the window screen to it. When It starts to plug up with crap I just take it to the edge of my property & whack it on the side of a tree & its ready to go again. I know its no wheres near the micron rating of what you have posted but for me it works. Cost me about 5 bucks to make.

me too, simone, but i doubled up the screen. From there, i run it through a shirt, then into my 55gal drum barrel to begin filtering and cf-ing.

1st time cleaning them barrel filterswas enough for me.

Same thing here except I cleaned them twice, after the second cleaning I bagged it.

I have a metal kitchen strainer wrapped over a foot valve on my 1" cubie stinger and that suffices for me. Never has to be cleaned.
