Industrial & Commercial Pipeline Strainers
Keckley's industrial and commercial steel pipeline strainers are designed for a wide variety of applications where protection from foreign matter in a pipeline is required.
Keckley pipeline strainers are suited for an assortment of applications such as:
- Petroleum Production & Refining
- Pulp & Paper
- Food & Beverage
- Water & Sewage Pump
- Oil & Gas
- Commercial Construction
- Power Generation
Keckley castings are machined to exacting specifications. Pipeline strainers are examined and inspected per our in-house quality control program to guarantee the highest caliber product. All pipeline connections are in accordance with ASME standards: B16.1, B16.11, B16.18, B16.24, B16.34, B16.42, and B16.5 respectively. Castings are hydrostatically tested per a minimum of 1.5 times the design pressure to ensure their integrity. Liquid Penetrant Examination (PT) as well as other non destructive examination (NDE) procedures can be performed.
Keckley engineers have designed the castings and screens to provide a maximum total screen area allowing for low pressure loss. Keckley Y-strainers can be installed in a vertical downward flow or horizontal pipeline, where Keckley simplex basket strainers and duplex basket strainers should be mounted in a horizontal pipeline.
Keckley pipeline strainers are available in a selection of materials including:
- Cast Iron
- Ductile Iron
- Carbon Steel
- Nickel Aluminum Bronze
- 304 Stainless Steel
- 316 Stainless Steel
- Alloy 20
- Hastelloy C276
- Low-temperature grade castings
Pipeline strainers are generally provided in: Threaded, Socket Weld, Solder Joint, Silbraze, FF Flanged, RF Flanged, RTJ, and Butt Weld connections. Cast pipeline strainers are available in pressure classes from 125lb to 2500lb.
Pipeline y-strainers (wye strainers) offer a compact and economical means of straining debris from pipelines.
Simplex Basket Strainers
Keckley simplex pipeline basket strainers are used in piping applications where a greater screen area to pipe area ratio is required.
Duplex Basket Strainers
Keckley duplex continuous flow basket strainers are used in continuous flow applications where the process cannot be shut down for cleaning.
The Keckley Company offers many industrial & commercial pipeline strainer options.
