CDF Corporation Unveils New Uses for Its Highly Successful EZ-Strainer(TM) Insert

Agricultural and Automotive Machinery will Benefit from New Studies

March 5, 2009 - CDF Corporation, the leading manufacturer of drum, pail, and intermediate bulk container liners and custom packaging solutions, introduced its EZ-Strainer(TM) insert for 55-gallon drums and 5-gallon pails into the agricultural and automotive markets.

The newly tested strainer, which allows for more efficient production and reduced customer cost by improving filtering techniques in a time-efficient manner, has been successfully used throughout industry and manufacturing sectors, but new testing has revealed potential benefits for agricultural and automotive machinery and equipment.

"The EZ-Strainer's dynamic use fits in all industries and is one of the most innovative products we have developed," said Vice President of Manufacturing Wayne Morgan. "We are excited about the possibilities of entering new markets; we believe customers throughout the automotive and agricultural markets will be truly impressed."

The revolutionary EZ-Strainer filters unwanted particles from valuable liquid products. A patented lip design allows the EZ-Strainer to simply hang from the top of any open-headed 55-gallon drum or 5-gallon pail without the chance of being pulled inside, even with heavy, viscous products. The EZ-Strainer can be used in those industries mixing liquid products such as inks, paints and urethanes, and for printing purposes. New testing has targeted the agricultural and automotive markets for use many uses, from filtering maple syrup and other liquid products to filtering oils and fluids for heavy equipment, such as tractors, production machinery, and vehicles. The EZ-Strainer is currently being used in successful bio-diesel programs around the country.

"We have been continually impressed by the EZ-Strainer," said President and Founder of Utah Biodiesel Supply Graydon Blair. "Its durability and ease of use are impressive - it has held up extremely well and we have seen no evidence of tears or other strength defects."

The EZ-Strainer insert is molded from high molecular weight high-density polyethylene with a center screen that is available in 100 ultra-fine nylon or 200, 400 and 600 multi-element mesh (fine, medium or coarse). EZ-Strainer inserts are ideal for removing particles from food, paints, coatings, silicone, ink and any other liquid product that needs to be debris free. The product can be inserted into 55-gallon drums or 5-gallon pails.
