Protecting system parts including flow metres, pumps, mechanical seals, and spray nozzles, pot type casted body basket strainers remove debris that could harm the process medium. The strainer basket catches the dust particles.
A pot type strainer, also known as a basket strainer, is a type of filtration device used to remove unwanted solids from liquids or gases. It is commonly used in various industries, including chemical processing, oil and gas, water treatment, and food and beverage.
The strainer gets its name from its design, which resembles a pot or basket. It typically consists of a cylindrical or conical-shaped body with perforations or mesh on the sides to allow fluid to pass through while trapping solid particles. The pot-type strainer usually has an inlet and an outlet for the flow of the fluid.
The working principle of a pot-type strainer is relatively simple. When the fluid flows through the strainer, the solid particles or debris in the fluid are retained by the mesh or perforations of the basket, preventing them from continuing downstream. This process helps protect pumps, valves, and other sensitive equipment from potential damage caused by these solid particles.
Maintenance of pot-type strainers involves periodic cleaning or replacement of the strainer basket to ensure its effective operation and prevent clogging. Some strainers have a blowdown or drain valve to remove collected debris without having to dismantle the strainer. Pot-type strainers come in various sizes and materials to suit different applications and flow rates. Common materials include stainless steel, carbon steel, and various alloys, depending on the compatibility with the process fluid and the level of filtration required.
Overall, pot type strainers are essential components in many industrial processes, helping to maintain the quality and efficiency of the fluid system by removing solid contaminants.
