Strainers are used to protect the Valves, Pumps, and Meters etc and are usually installed in the upstream to filter the unwanted particles from the medium. The most common types used are the “Y “Type and the Basket type. These are available with various material combinations and End Connections.
Plumbing Strainers are closed vessels which can collect the solid particles that are needed to be separated while passing via a fluid by a screen that is removable. Particles down to diameter of 0.001 inches can be collected by the screens. They can do more than just removing the unwanted material. The required materials which can be used elsewhere or in any other processes can be removed by them too. You can find strainers upstream of sensitive equipment such as meters, pumps, compressors, taps, valves, and filters. In almost all types of industries like food, chemical, petroleum, water, paint and others, strainers can be seen. They are available in different configurations like Basket Strainers, Y Strainers, Duplex Strainers, Simplex Strainers and Temporary Strainers. They can be threaded, bolted or welded in line.

The main function of the Strainer is to remove foreign matter like leaves, sticks, or stones from the Irrigation network pipelines. Foreign particles that are present in the water can harm crucial appliances in the system when a Strainer is used, they are stuck in the filter of the strainer, and then the user can clear the filter blockage by using manometer connections.
To remove the unwanted solids from gas, liquid or steam lines, the mechanical devices Y-Strainers are used with the help of a perforated wire mesh straining element. For protecting meters, pumps, steam traps, control valves, regulators, and other process equipment, these strainers are used. They are extremely cost-effective straining solutions suitable for several applications. The strainer screen is cleaned manually by shutting the line down and removing the strainer cap, where the amount of material to be removed from the flow is extremely small that results in long intervals between screen cleanings, screen of the strained is cleaned manually by closing the line and taking of the cap of the strainer.
A basket strainer is a closed vessel having an easy to clean screen element that is designed for retaining and removing the foreign particles down to around 0.001-inch diameter from several flowing fluids. Strainers do not just remove dirt but take out the unwanted material from the fluid and this can sometimes be a valuable product which can be saved. The design of the Basket Strainers is done to install them on horizontal lines. Commonly, they are used for liquid service applications. Traditionally, Basket Strainers are used in place where is it required to have high flow capacity. By removing the cover, the Basket Strainer is serviced that offers access to the basket. In a duplex style, Basket Strainers are available that comprises of diverting valves and two parallel Basket Strainers, that allows diversion of the flow via one of the elements of Strainer while the other element is getting serviced – this is an important feature in which their cannot be any interruptions to the flow. Dutco Tennant LLC offers a wide product inventory for strainer valves that are well-engineered to perform with grace. We have strainers in materials like Brass, Lead-free Bronze, Cast Iron.
