Our FLUOR-O-FLO® fluoroplastic strainers are well suited for use in removing suspended or waste solids from extremely corrosive or high-purity fluid streams. They help prevent damage to sensitive downstream process components such as pumps, valves, instruments, and spray nozzles. When compared with PVC, CPVC, or polypropylene units, their all fluoroplastic construction provides superior corrosion resistance, as well as a higher operating temperature range.
Screw caps (Y-Strainers) and screw tops (Basket Strainers) allow easy strainer cartridge removal and cleanout. Drain-plugs allow drainage of residual liquids before cartridge removal. FEP encapsulated o-rings seats prevent blow-by and external leakage. For maximum installation flexibility, a wide range of mesh screens and connections are available in our standard product lines. We also welcome special orders if you have unusual requirements. Click here for some examples of our custom fabricated strainers.
For the Basket and Y-Strainers, we normally stock the subassemblies and can assemble units to your specifications in a short lead time, often in a week or less.
