Keeping pipelines clean is important. When pipelines are corroded and filled with debris, flow and production decreases. Pipeline strainers are a compact and efficient method for filtering debris and corrosive materials. They are important parts of piping systems to protect equipment from potential damage. More Than a Filter: A filter removes particles and contains a disposable element for removing particles of specific micron sizes. A strainer also serves as a filter. However, strainers perform using screen meshes to remove larger particles. All strainer screens have a large screening and free area, designed to remove as much dirt as possible without 'clogging up'. Strainers are reusable and contain three levels of straining: coarse, medium, and fine. Many Benefits: There are many advantages strainers have to offer your pipeline. They are a wise investment that provide your peace of mind as they safeguard your plant. Strainers reduce maintenance costs and downtime and increase the life of your plant and control valve. Wide Selection: Strainers are available in a wide range of materials and end connections. There are many options for almost any application. Pipeline debris is commonly found in all types of plant within all types of industry. It is important that strainers are fitted to protect hi-tech equipment such as steam traps and control valves to prevent steam blockage. A plant which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week cannot afford any downtime. A blocked control valve would stop production leading to costly repairs, reduced profits and a low level of customer service.
