Strainers remove damage causing particulate matter from the pipeline media, protecting the pipeline system components such as flow meters, pumps, mechanical seals and valves. The particulate matter is captured in the strainer basket. The pipeline is then temporarily shut down and the basket removed for cleaning and replacement.
‘Y’Strainers are common place in pipelines and offer an affordable and effective pipeline strainer product. Pot Strainers reduce downtime for cleaning due to their construction including a top bolted cover and easy removal of the screen. As they are accessed from above makes them easier to clean and replace the screen. Screens can be manufactured from many materials, stainless steel grade 304 is our standard. Lifting eyes and handles are supplied on the cover plate of larger Pot Strainers enabling easier removal and replacement of the cover plate. Pot Strainers can be manufactured with special corrosion protection coatings.
As the lid of the pot strainer sits on top of the product, it is easier to open, clean and replace the screen. Many ‘Y’ Strainers are installed and never cleaned as access to the strainer at the bottom of the product is restricted.
