Strainers

from EATON

Manual & Automatic Pipeline Strainers

Eaton’s Manual Strainers are used by industrial and commercial customers to protect their process piping equipment by removing debris from the liquid that flows through pipelines. Products include duplex basket strainers, simplex basket strainers, Y strainers and Tee type strainers. Eaton offers pipeline basket strainers in sizes from ¼” to 48”.

Simplex Basket Strainers

Simplex basket strainers are used where the line can be shut down for short periods to clean or change baskets. Eaton standard cast pipeline strainers meet customers’ expectations and the highest standards, including:

  • ISO 9001-2008 quality management
  • Properly sized components to meet any specified retention requirement and flow rate
  • Ultra low discharge strainer technology that offers reduced purged volumes

Duplex Basket Strainers

Eaton’s Duplex (or double basket) strainer can operate continuously and never has to be shut down for cleaning. This type of basket strainer has two separate strainer basket chambers that operate independently. When one basket chamber becomes full, the flow is switched to the other allowing the first basket to be pulled out and cleaned.

A duplex or double basket strainer can operate continuously and never interrupt your process. Ideal for applications where pipelines cannot be shut down for basket changeout.

Y Strainers

Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel – Threaded, Flanged and Socket Welded, 1/4″ to 10″

Y-Strainers are typically used in applications where the amount of solids to be removed is small, and where frequent clean-out is not required.  They are most often installed in gaseous services such as steam, air, nitrogen, natural gas, etc.  The compact, cylindrical shape of the Y-strainer is very strong and can readily accommodate the high pressures that are common in this type of service.  Pressures up to 6000 psi are not unusual.  When steam is being handled, high temperature can be an additional complicating factor.  A steam pressure of 1500 psi will often be found at temperatures of 1000°F.

A Y-strainer has the advantage of being able to be installed in either a horizontal or vertical position.  However, in both cases, the screening element or “leg” must be on the “downside” of the strainer body so the entrapped solids can be properly collected and held for disposal.  Eaton heavy-duty Model 85 Y Strainers are furnished with high quality stainless steel screens that are carefully fabricated to fit the strainer body perfectly.  This, coupled with the precision machined screen seat on the body of the strainer, protects against any bypass.
