Strainers provide economical protection for costly pumps, meters, valves and other similar mechanical equipment by straining foreign matter from the connected piping system. Installation of a strainer before mechanical equipment can ensure trouble free service and avoid costly shutdowns for repair or replacement of equipment damaged by foreign matter. The size of the perforation or mesh in the basket screen will determine the smallest particles captured.

  • High quality construction -the BS 85 basket strainer boasts many unique design features including inlet/outlet bosses with gauge taps (2 Inch and up), spot faced flange bolt holes, plugged bottom drain and cover vent, cast-in support legs (6 Inch and up), epoxy painted carbon bodies, encapsulated cover gasket and an optional quick-opening cover design
  • Minimal pressure loss - pressure loss is minimized by providing a slanted straining element design and straight flow path, plugged, NPT taps are provided (near the inlet and outlet on both sides) allowing for the quick mounting of pressure gauges to monitor pressure loss
  • Large straining capacity - with its large body and sizeable straining element, the BS 85-CS/SS has the ability to store large quantities of debris without affecting pressure loss - thus maximizing time between servicing
  • Numerous straining element options - straining elements are available in a variety of perforations, meshes and materials, special designs are also available including magnetic, wedge wire, drilled perforations and pleated straining elements, the standard material for straining elements is type 304 stainless steel
  • Self-cleaning option - utilizing a modified straining element, the bottom drain can be fitted with a Titan FCI ball valve to allow for the automatic cleaning or flushing of the straining element while keeping the pipeline in service
  • ASTM A216 Grade WCB carbon steel bolted cover, stainless steel spiral wound gasket, ASTM A193-B7 alloy steel studs, ASTM A194-2H carbon steel nuts, carbon steel plug
  • The angular cutaway design of the baskets allows a straight through flow, resulting in extremely low pressure drop
  • Straining element on 2 Inch BS 85 is a straight screen, it is not diagonal as illustrated on right
  • General application - simplex basket strainers are installed into a pipeline system to remove unwanted debris from the pipeline flow, basket strainers are commonly used in horizontal pipelines where debris loading is high and the collection of solids is required, straining is accomplished via a perforated or mesh lined straining element, internal to the basket strainer, in general, the size of the perforation or mesh should be slightly smaller than the smallest debris particle to be removed, it is important to note that the correct size of a basket strainer is determined by its job function, not by the size of the pipeline
