Whoa! Where the heck did you find that thing?I don't filter the wort before the plate chiller. I keep the hops loosely contained in a couple of gargantuan 5.5" stainless balls that I drop into the boil and whirlpool the hot break at the end to develop a nice trub cone. My pickup tube is on the outer edge of the kettle.
No clogs, no slow-downs. no worries.
