Available in PVC, Corzan® CPVC or EASTAR®, these all-plastic Simplex basket strainers offer advantages such as system component protection, easy basket cleaning, choice of piping connections and wide range of strainer baskets.
Protects System Components
When pipeline system components require protection from dirt and debris and the line can be shut down for basket cleaning, an Eaton all-plastic Simplex basket strainer is the ideal choice.
Unwanted particles are removed as the process media passes through a perforated strainer basket contained inside the strainer body. The basket traps the unwanted material while allowing the process media to flow freely.
Easy Basket Cleaning
Changing or cleaning the strainer basket is quick and easy. The hand removable, spin-off cover features two angled handles for easy access to the strainer basket.
The housing features external cover threads that do not contact the process media and never need cleaning.
Venting and draining are made possible by two hand removable, threaded plugs, one on the top of the cover and the other on the housing side.
Choice of Piping Connections
Eaton Simplex basket strainers can be installed either in-line or with loop piping configurations.
This is made possible by a unique design that incorporates three piping connections on the strainer body that are used as inlets and outlets.
The unused connection is plugged using a blind fitting. True union connections make it possible to remove the strainer from the piping system without disassembling the piping connections.
Wide Range of Strainer Baskets
Plastic baskets in perforation sizes from 1/32" to 3/16" are available.
Stainless steel perforated baskets are available from 1/2" to 1/32".
Mesh stainless steel baskets for very fine straining applications are available in sizes from 20 mesh down to 325 mesh.
