When pipeline system components require protection from dirt and debris and the line can be shut down for basket cleaning, this is the ideal choice. Unwanted particles are removed as the process media passes through a perforated strainer basket contained inside the strainer body. Basket traps the unwanted material while allowing the process media to flow freely. Flow never has to be shut off for basket cleaning or changing. Turning the operating handle on the diverter valve assembly switches the flow from one strainer housing to the other. Then, the out of service housing can be serviced by opening the hand removable, spin-off cover that features two angled handles for easy access to the strainer basket. Housings have external cover threads that do not contact the process media and never need cleaning. Venting and draining are made possible by two hand removable, threaded plugs on the cover and side of the housings. Can be installed either in-line or with loop piping configurations, made possible by changing the orientation of the bottom outlet connection. Just loosen the connection assembly nuts on the bottom diverter valve and rotate it 180° to convert from one type of connection to the other. True Union connections make it possible to remove the strainer from the piping system without disassembling the piping connections. 1/2" - 1" have 1/32" perforations. 1 1/2" - 4" have 1/8" perforations.
