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

The particulate matter from the process media is captured in the strainer basket. The line is temporarily shut down while the basket is removed for cleaning or replacement.  

Steam jacketed strainers are used for applications where materials must be kept hot in order for them to remain in the fluid state.  

Some of the applications include chocolate, asphalt, resins and polymers.  

The strainer body temperature is maintained by circulating steam or a heat transfer fluid through the strainer jacket. The strainer body is provided with a carbon steel or stainless steel jacket welded to the cast body. The jacket can handle steam pressures up to 100 psi.  

The basic strainer used in Model 72SJ steam jacketed strainers is Eaton’s popular Model 72 basket strainer which has become an industry standard.  

All the features of Model 72 basket strainers have been retained including large capacity baskets and yoke type as well as hand removable covers for quick basket cleaning or replacement.
