What is a Strainer?

An industrial strainer is a mechanical device used in various industries to remove unwanted solid particles or debris from fluids (liquids or gases) as they flow through a pipeline or process system. The primary purpose of an industrial strainer is to protect downstream equipment, such as pumps, valves, meters, and other sensitive components, from damage or clogging caused by these solid contaminants.

Why install a strainer to your system?

Industrial strainers typically have a perforated or meshed screen, known as a straining element or filter element, that captures solid particles of a certain size while allowing the clean fluid to pass through. This is how particle removal is achieved.

Industrial strainers can remove particles such as dirt, debris, rust, scale, and sediment from the fluid. The size of particles that can be captured depends on the mesh size or perforation size of the straining element.

Periodic maintenance is required to clean or replace the straining element when it becomes clogged or reaches its capacity. This maintenance helps maintain the efficiency of the process and prolongs the life of downstream equipment.

Industrial strainers are used in a wide range of industries, including petrochemical, chemical processing, water treatment, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, power generation, and many others. They play a critical role in ensuring the quality and reliability of processes in these industries.
