Basket Filter & Strainer
Strainers are vital to protect pipeline equipment from coarse solids such as pipe scale, rocks, sand, grit and welding beads entrained in gas or liquid streams. The dirt collects into an internal screen basket insert and it can be easily removed periodically. Basket filters, Y strainers and T strainers are some examples of using this mechanism. The screen basket insert in strainers is made of perforated plate or wire mesh as filters can handle the largest capacity with the lowest pressure drop.
