Keckley simplex pipeline basket strainers are used in piping applications where a greater screen area to pipe area ratio is required. By providing a greater screen area than a Y-strainer, you are optimizing the total open area and minimizing potential pressure loss through the basket. Simplex strainers are used to protect pipelines, valves, and spray nozzles from water flow problems. They reduce the necessity for frequent cleaning and provides a cost and time saving benefit with less downtime.
Unlike the ability of a Y-strainer to “blow” the debris through the drain connection, a basket strainer requires the removal of the basket for cleaning. Therefore production must stop for cleaning the basket.
