Strainers are devices which arrest these solids in flowing liquids or gases, and protect equipment from their harmful effects, thus reducing downtime and maintenance. A strainer should be fitted upstream of every steam trap, flowmeter and control valve.

Strainers can be classified into two main types according to their body configuration; namely the Y-type and the basket type. Typical examples of these types of strainers can be seen in Figure 12.4.1.
