Hellan Fluid Strainers


About Hellan Strainer

The Hellan Strainer’s unique, patented, self-cleaning design was named after a Norwegian inventor, Haakon Hellan.

In 1963, Cleveland Gear Company, Inc. purchased the design and incorporated its own worm gear speed reducers to create a motorized strainer model. The complete Hellan Strainer line manufactured by Cleveland Gear Company, Inc. became a part of the Vesper family in 1980.

In 2000, Hellan was made a subsidiary of Vesper Corporation as The Hellan Strainer Company.

Hellan expanded their product offerings of hose reels in 2003 and Staples & Pfeiffer strainers in 2009.

In 2018 Hellan Strainer acquired SSI Fabricated, expanding our product coverage to fabricated strainers and skid systems.

Today Hellan is one of many subsidiaries of Industrial Manufacturing Company (previously Vesper) that produce a wide variety of innovative products for industry
