Eaton Filtration  offers Simplex pipeline strainers that remove damage-causing particulate matter from the process media, protecting system components such as flow meters, pumps and spray nozzles.  

The particulate matter is captured in the strainer baskets. The line is then temporarily shut down and the basket removed for cleaning or replacement.  

Eaton’s Model 72 pipeline strainers have been the industry-standard Simplex basket strainers for over 70 years. Some of the reasons for their popularity include:  

  • Unusually large basket capacity
  • Free straining area at least 6 times the cross-sectional pipe area
  • No tools are needed to open the cover
  • Quick opening, swinging yoke can be disassembled and the basket removed in seconds 

Wall thickness of these pipeline strainers is exceptionally high. The basket seats are precision machined to give a tight seal.  

Additionally, every strainer is hydrostatically tested at 150% of its maximum rated pressure.  

The Eaton Model 72 is a high quality, heavy duty strainer that will stand up to the most demanding of applications.  

These pipeline strainers are available in iron, bronze, carbon steel or stainless steel in threaded or flanged options.
