Basket Strainers

It is generally accepted that the presence of foreign matter in fluid handling systems is highly undesirable and can lead to the premature failure of critical high value items of equipment, such as pumps and meters. The installation of Basket Strainers is therefore highly recommended and widely practised in these systems.

The Basket Strainers offer the end user a very low pressure loss under high flow conditions and an extended operational life. They are supplied with a quick release lid as standard, and this feature allows the basket to be removed quickly with no special tools, hence minimising the downtime during basket cleaning. Basket removal is possible without the unit being fully drained. The lid is sealed with an O-Ring which gives the lowest possible clamping force with no gaskets required, and there is a side drain point to allow rapid drainage of the contents.
