(1250 mesh is 10 microns). according to wikipedia, pollen ranges from 100 microns down to a minimum of 6 microns. Oak pollen is 24-38 microns. for pollen, I would think the sediment trapper filter would be better than the spindown. these can operate with fairly low pressure, but might still require a pump.

then drain off the pollen at the bottom and pumped the clear water from the top of said barren into the original storage tank.
How big would this settlement 'barrel' be.
How long would it take for the pollen to settle to the bottom by gravity, and what can we do to expedite the process.
