High-flow-rate Duplex Basket Strainer
The Model 50 duplex basket strainer is designed for applications where space is at a premium. Sized for 10-inch to 18-inch high-flow pipelines, it removes particulates down to 1/64 inch. Flow in the Model 50 enters the basket chamber in a straight line. The 10-inch strainer thus can handle 2000 GPM of water with a 2-psi pressure loss.
Balanced synchronous butterfly valves, open and close via a single handwheel operator, to divert the flow of fluid from one basket to the other to permit basket cleaning while pipeline flow continues uninterrupted. Opening the covers, removing the strainer, and reclosing reportedly take less than one minute and require neither tools nor lifting gear. Perforated and fine mesh-lined type 316 stainless steel strainer baskets are standard. Strainers are available in iron, ductile iron and bronze with flanged connections.
