Eaton – Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainers
The Eaton 2596 Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainer is a motorized strainer designed for the continuous removal of entrained solids from liquid in pipeline systems. This strainer is ideal for applications that demand uninterrupted flow, a major consideration in plant operations.
Eaton Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainers are available in the following pipe sizes, 2” to 8” cast iron or stainless steel, 10” to 16” cast ductile iron only and 10” to 60” Fabricated carbon steel and stainless steel. Custom designs and exotic materials are available upon request.
A wide range of screen designs are offered from 1/8” perf to 200 mesh.They are used for straining cooling water from ponds, lakes or rivers, cooling towers, plant service water, boiler feed water, secondary effluent, irrigation, and municipal water intake for equipment protection.
The determining factors are the level of solids content and the ability to handle the backwash discharge flow. They are a worthwhile investment when loading is high or upset conditions occur.
These strainers also provide worry-free operation. Continuous flow is assured, even while the system is being backwashed, providing uninterrupted protection for nozzles, pumps, valves, heat exchangers, and other process equipment.
Frequent cleaning and servicing of manual strainers is costly, and if not properly done, serious disruptions to the entire piping system can occur.
Eaton Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainers will significantly reduce these maintenance costs. They are ideal replacements for either simplex or duplex manual strainers.
