Model 72 Simplex Strainer

The Eaton Model 72 Simplex Strainer has been the top industry choice for standard simplex basket strainers for over 75 years. It’s perfect for industrial and commercial applications where the line can be temporarily shut down for strainer basket cleaning or change out.

The main contributor to its popularity is the unusually large basket capacity. The free straining area is at least 6 times the cross-sectional pipe area, even more in many sizes. No tools are required to open the cover. The quick opening, swinging yoke can be disassembled and the basket removed in seconds. On sizes 4″ and larger, a special cover clamp is provided to distribute the seating pressure and to ensure the positive seating of the cover. The Eaton Model 72 simplex basket strainer is a top quality, heavy-duty unit designed to stand up to even the most demanding applications.

Another feature of the simplex strainer is a threaded drain on every size strainer (fitted with a plug) and can be used as a backwash connection if desired. Sizes 2″ and larger are provided with legs that enable it to be bolted to the floor for rock solid installation. The basket seats are precision machined to give a tight seal and prevent any material from by-passing the basket.
