With the see-through, PVC Y strainer, users can see how much dirt and debris has been trapped by the strainer element. The translucent plastic body allows the strainer element to be seen in operation and helps determine when it needs to be cleaned. This strainer is designed to help plant productivity by eliminating premature shutdown of the pipe system.
A rugged, heavy duty, 1/32-in. perforated plastic strainer is standard on all strainers, and is ultrasonically welded for strength. The strainer has been designed to work equally well installed in the horizontal or vertical position. All-plastic construction eliminates the possibility of rust or corrosion. Strainers are available in ½- through 2-in. sizes, with socket weld or threaded connections.
Screens fabricated of 316 stainless steel are also offered in openings from ½-in. down to a superfine 325 mesh. All screens have an open area at least twice that of the equivalent pipe size cross-sectional area in order to minimize pressure drop. The strainer element cleaning is quick with all sizes featuring a heavy duty hex cap.
