Fabrotech Industries has
a large assortment of fabricated products listing temporary cone and basket
strainers, tee strainers, orifice plates, spectacle blinds, flat strainers, replacement
screens & baskets and pressure drops for tee strainers. Fabrotech is also your source
for many other products such as cast iron y-type strainers, carbon steel y-type strainers,
pipeline strainers and simplex & duplex baskets.
Simplex Basket Strainers
These strainers are used to remove foreign matter from pipe lines and provide
inexpensive protection to pumps, meters, valves, etc. In appropriate material, and can be
specified for drinking water, cooling water, sea water, etc.
These strainers have been designed for applications where easy maintenance & large
capacity straining are needed. Service time is minimal because the cover is secured with
quick opening, non-yoke type knobs. Both the cover & the basket use O-ring seals,
eliminating the need to replace gaskets each time the strainer is serviced. This, combined
with the machined basket sheet, eliminates particle bypass. With the appropriate wire mesh
lining, these models can be used to strain particles as small as five microns.
Cast cover and body. All sizes feature an O-ring cover seal. Baskets and O-rings are
sealed in machined seats. Quick release knobs are inserted molded with metal threads. A
plugged NPT connection is provided ("D"). Coatings are available on application.
Standard basket is .062 perf 304 SS Buna-N O-ring standard for all models except stainless
steel, which is supplied with a Viton O-ring. Optional materials of construction and
porting, e.g., flanged or threaded, are available as "standard"
CAPACITY: Minimum 6 to 1 open area ratio.
TESTING: Shell test pressure= 1.5 times working
Duplex Basket Strainers
These strainers are designed for
use in fluid handling systems where the flow cannot be shut down for basket cleaning such
as cooling water, compressors, condensers, fire lines, fuel lines, lubrication systems,
and salt and fresh water systems. Not recommended for steam service.
These Duplex strainers use 3-way
balls as diverter valves. This design with its PTFE seats provides bubble-tight shut-off,
eliminating the costly and potentially dangerous leakage into the chamber not in use. The
two part body casting allows true-inline maintainability. All parts of the valve are
accessible after removing the basket chamber without removing the strainer from the line.
A gear operator is standard on the 4" & 6" units, allowing for a very easy
change over. On models with a handle, the chamber in use is covered by the handle
preventing accidental opening of the pressurized chamber and allowing easy access to the
side to be serviced. The large open area ratio of the basket assures a minimum pressure
drop across the unit. Perforated stainless steel (304) baskets are standard on all models,
with mesh lining optional.
The I8-125 is designed to provide economical &
dependable protection to mechanical equipment. Self cleaning is easily accomplished by
opening the plug or valve connected to the blowoff outlet (not supplied).
All sizes feature a bolted cover. The cover has a
recessed seat which assures correct screen fit. There are bosses located at the inlet and
outlet flanges for the installation of gauges (not supplied).
Heavy gauge 304 stainless steel screens are
normally furnished in the following perforations: Other materials, such as Monel,
Hastelloy C, & Alloy-20 are available Other perforation sizes and/or mesh lining is
The body and cover are constructed from Cast Iron
(ASTM A126 B), and the flat gasket is non-asbestos. The blowoff outlets are tapped NPT,
and are not normally supplied with plugs.
Temporary & Cone Type
Notes: Normally supplied with
1/8" diameter holes on 3/16" centers. Available in most sizes with perforation
& mesh. Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel and other Alloys available. For Ring Type Joint
(RTJ), Specify Ring Number and Style. If mesh lined, specify flow direction.
