Eaton’s Mechanically Cleaned Strainers Conserve Water and Expand Efficiency for Industrial Manufacturing


TINTON FALLS, N.J. … While the nature of pipeline debris – scale, rust, metal and other solids – remains constant, the nature of business for industrial manufacturers is ever-evolving. Time, money and staff resources are limited; water conservation is paramount, and the importance of protecting expensive processing equipment has never been greater.

Power management company Eaton addresses these pipeline debris challenges with its MCS series of mechanically coupled strainers. Engineered for continuous operations, the high flow strainers – including the MCS-500 and MCS-1500 – are designed to conserve valuable process water while optimizing plant performance.

“As the marketplace becomes increasingly competitive and environmentally conscious, preserving resources is critical,” acknowledged Mary Jo Surges, vice president and general manager of Eaton’s Filtration Division. “Eaton’s MCS strainers provide our customers with a unique solution to reduce costly maintenance and downtime, and elevate sustainability standards.

The MCS series of strainers feature fast cleaning magnetically coupled actuation that eliminates the need for dynamic seals. This technology provides quick and easy access for maintenance, minimizes potential leaks, and requires few moving parts – all of which contribute to a long service life. In addition, the eco-friendly design provides for low-waste operation, with no bags to purchase or dispose. To learn more about MCS 500 and MCS 1500 high flow strainers, visit
