Model 73 Straight Flow Basket Strainer

Large pipelines with high flow rates require a unique type of basket strainer. The typical design implemented for smaller pipelines cannot perform efficiently, the pressure loss is too high and the baskets are too large to easily remove and clean. These filtration problems have been eliminated by the Eaton Straight Through Flow design simplex basket strainer. With its straight-through flow, pressure loss is greatly reduced and it also comes complete with a compact strainer, perfect for fitting into tight spaces.

The basket that this strainer uses is unparalleled as well. The perforated or mesh straining screen in the basket is convoluted (pleated) which greatly increases the amount of straining area available, reducing the overall basket size and weight. This makes it easy to remove the basket from the strainer housing.

When you're selecting a pipeline strainer for a large size piping system with high flow rates, be sure to consider all the factors. The amount of straining area in the basket is critical to reducing the amount of time between cleanings or change out. Also, keep in mind that if cleaning the basket is difficult or requires two people to perform operating costs will rise. The design of the Eaton Model 72 takes all these operating parameters into consideration and is the best simplex strainer for higher flow applications in large pipelines.
