Large size pipelines with high flow rates require a unique type of basket strainer. The typical design for smaller size pipelines just won’t perform efficiently…the pressure loss would be too high and the baskets too large to remove and clean easily.
These problems have been solved by the Eaton Straight Through Flow design simplex basket strainer. With this straight through flow, pressure loss is greatly reduced and, at the same time, results in a compact strainer that can fit in tight spaces.
The basket that this strainer uses is special as well. The perforated or mesh straining screen in the basket is convoluted (pleated). This increases the amount of straining area available while at the same time reducing the overall basket size and weight.
This makes it easy to remove the basket from the strainer housing. No lifting tackle is required. And the quick opening cover provides fast and easy access to the basket. What all this means is that the basket of the Model 72 is quick and easy to service… saving considerable time and money over the years.
When selecting a pipeline strainer for a large size piping system with high flow rates, be sure to consider all the factors, not just initial pressure loss. The amount of straining area in the basket is critical to reducing the amount of time between cleanings or change out.
Also remember that if cleaning the basket is difficult, or requires two people to perform, operating costs will continue to be too high. The design of the Eaton Model 72 Straight Through Simplex Basket Strainer takes all these operating parameters into consideration and is the best simplex strainer for higher flow applications in large pipelines.
