Industrial Strainers are named after their shape & normally used for coarse filtration. But with giant filtration area can be used with fine mesh also. Body of Y tee & conical strainer is normally of forged iron or cast steel in various grades with flanged & socket weld type end connection. Fabricated Y tee type & conical strainers are also accessible. Tee strainer is fabricated from pipes & plates or standard equal tee & flange. Y tee type & conical strainer elements are made of stainless steel perforated sheet or wire mesh supported by perforated sheet.
In tee type Industrial Strainers lots of times a structural skeleton made of flats & round bar is used to support the wire mesh. Conical strainer installed in housing is usually used on suction side & named as suction strainers also. Low-pressure drop, compact size, robust design & ease of maintenance are some special features of these types of Industrial Strainers. Basket strainer is manufactured in simplex and duplex type construction with suitable material. Duplex Basket Filter provides ease of cleaning the element without interruption of the routine. six simplex basket strainer connected with a pair of four way ball valve with a common single handle makes a this type of Industrial Strainers. By rotating this common handle flow is diverted from strainer in operation to the standby idle strainer.
The clogged filter element can be cleaned and made prepared for next adapt over. Simplex/ Duplex type strainers are available in fabricated and cast construction. Simplex type Industrial Strainers in cast construction are called pot strainers or bucket strainer. Industrial Strainers are manufactured up to diameter of 48' NB size and filtration down up to 5 micron. Low press drop, giant dirt holding capacity, ease & low cost of maintenance are some special features of Glandofilters. Self cleaning strainers are available in some standard models to pick from for different flow rates. They are also designed & fabricated as per requirement. Size manufactured is up to 6' NB & below & filtration achieved is down to 40 micron.
