Strainer

Strainer Introduction

The strainer is a cost-effective solution for the mechanical removal of unwanted impurities from liquid, gas, or steam lines by means of a perforated or wire mesh straining element. They are used in pipelines to protect pumps, meters, control valves, steam traps, regulators, and other process equipment.
A Y-strainer has the advantage of being able to be installed in either a horizontal or vertical position.
However, in both cases, the screen element must be on the “downside” of the strainer body so the impurities can be properly collected and held for disposal.Y Strainers are furnished with high-quality stainless steel screens that are carefully fabricated to fit the strainer body perfectly.
