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.
