Different types of screens and materials are available to fulfil specific requirements. Contact us now for more information.

Features of the Y strainer

The strainers can be used in many environments. Special materials are available on request for extreme temperatures, pressures and sizes of solids. This includes the screen, material of construction, and the soft parts, such as the seat and seal.

Feature Benefit
Clean Y strainers can filter out fine solids to ensure clean outflow.
Strong The compact, cylindrical shape of the strainer can accommodate high pressure. The valve can easily handle 6000 psi of pressure.
High temperature The valve is well equipped to withstand high temperatures, including steam.
Minimise damage The strainer minimizes the damage to the pipelines, valves, pumps, flowmeters, and instrumentations.
Cost effective The strainer is designed to minimise interruptions, wear and tear, and any associated costs.
Easy to maintain Simple access to the cover for easy removal of the solids accumulated.

Y strainers can be installed in various locations including the following:

  • Manufacturing plants
  • Power stations
  • HVAC
  • Industrial factories
  • Steam generation
  • Boiler rooms

Y strainers are the most common type of strainers installed in pipelines. The strainers are used to filter solids from liquid or gas.

Some of the most common applications are for the following:

  • Steam
