Bronze and Stainless Steel

Strainers

Application

The presence of foreign particles in an automatic valve may seriously affect its dependability. The installation of a strainer close to the inlet side of the valve is the best means of preventing the entrance of pipe chips, scale, rust, pipe dope, welding slag or sediment into the valve, provided the screen is periodically removed for cleaning.

Cleaning for Cryogenix & Oxygenic Service

  • Strainers for Cryogenic applications are degreased and cleaned to keep them free of moisture.
  • Strainers for Oxygen service are degreased and cleaned then "black light" tested.
