Basket Strainers are mainly installed in horizontal piping. Since the basket strainer elements housed in the bodies can be taken out from the tops, the debris caught by the elements can be taken outside easily.
Y Strainers are most commonly used in pressurized lines, gas or liquid, but can also be used in suction or vacuum
conditions. They are intended for applications where small amounts of solid particulate are expected, and where
clean-out will be infrequent. Tee angle strainer is designed for angled flow and can be fabricated with a standard
bolted cover or a quick opening hinged cover. Tee strainers for straight flow type are installed at 90° bend piping.
The cylindrical element housed in the body can be taken out to horizontal center line by removing the cover.
Simplex strainers are available with bolted or quick release yoked cover. Yoke cover units are ideally suited for
applications where frequent clean-out of the filter is expected. Having a spare, clean filter on hand will greatly
reduce the cleaning time, and differential pressure gauges, with alarms, can be supplied to get the maximum
on-stream time between cleaning cycles. Duplex strainer is a simple, economical, and trouble free design and time
tested in applications around the world over many years. They are actually a high quality, pressure rated plug valve
with integral straining filters. Switching the flow from one filter to the other is accomplished by moving the
operating handle through a 90 degree arc. Temporary strainers shall be used for flushing before starting regular
operation of the piping and are installed between flanges of piping line.
