About Y & Basket Strainers
Y & Basket Strainers are an essential component of many industrial processes. Their primary function is to filter out impurities, debris, and solid particles from a fluid stream to protect downstream equipment, valves, and instruments. These strainers come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and configurations to suit different applications, flow rates, and operating conditions.
Types of Y & Basket Strainers
Y strainers and basket strainers are two of the most commonly used types of strainers. Y strainers have a Y-shaped design and are typically installed in horizontal pipelines to remove particles from liquid and gas flows. Basket strainers, on the other hand, have a cylindrical shape and are used in vertical pipelines to trap larger particles and debris. Duplex strainers are another type of basket strainer that includes two separate strainer baskets that can be switched out without interrupting the flow.
How Y & Basket Strainers are Made
Y & Basket Strainers are typically made of durable materials such as cast iron, carbon steel, stainless steel, or plastic. The strainer housing can be made from a single piece or can be bolted together for easy maintenance and cleaning. Strainer elements can be made from a variety of materials such as mesh, perforated metal, or wedge wire, depending on the size of the particles to be filtered and the type of fluid being filtered. Strainers may also include pressure gauges, drain valves, and other accessories to enhance their functionality.
