Eaton Filtration supplies Model 53BTX duplex basket strainers that feature their patented diverter cartridge designed to isolate and seal the basket chamber leak-tight while simplifying strainer basket cleaning and changing.
Model 53BTX duplex basket strainers are designed to provide years of trouble-free service, protecting expensive pipeline system components from damage by unwanted particles.
Since the system flow never has to be shut down for basket cleaning, the Model 53BTX strainer is perfect for lines that must run continuously or for batch systems that can’t be stopped.
A quick, easy turn of the handle operates the diverter cartridge that switches the system flow from one basket chamber to the other, allowing the out-of-service basket to be cleaned or changed.
The diverter cartridge in these duplex basket strainers has been designed for long service to reduce maintenance costs. A patented dynamic ball sealing system features polymer seats with elastomer seals for extended life.
Should it become necessary to service the diverter cartridge, only four bolts need to be removed for the cartridge to come right out through the top of the strainer. There is no need to disassemble the strainer or remove it from the line.
Offered in pipeline sizes from 3⁄4” to 4”, Model 53BTX duplex basket strainers can be supplied in iron, bronze, carbon steel or stainless steel with threaded or flanged pipe connections.
Stainless steel strainer baskets with a low pressure drop design are standard and mesh sizes from 1⁄2” down to 400 microns are available.
Special alloy baskets are available as an option in addition to differential pressure gauges and switches, magnetic separators, drain valves, basket chamber vents as well as pressure equalising assemblies.
