    Cutting Filter Sheets
    by Omega.144K
    Just wanted to say thanks in advance. We are a 4 BBL brewery in New Mexico and we use a 20x20 plate and frame filter. Whenever we order filters we can get 100 sheets of 20x20 for about $110 but we can get 100 sheets of 40x40 for $180. That's literally 4 times as much for nearly pennies more.

    6 x 7bbl unitanks, sched 80 pvc for trunks, and 3/4 flex line drops to the tanks.

    So, Option A - standard...
