About Strainers

A pipeline strainer mechanically removes solids from a flowing fluid using a perforated, mesh or wedgewire straining element.

The most common range for strainer particle retention is 1/2” to 40 microns.Strainers are used in pipelines to protect downstream mechanical equipment (i.e. condensers, heat exchangers, pumps, compressors, turbines, valves, sprinkler heads and steam traps) from the detrimental effects of sediment, rust, pipe scale, and other debris.

While strainers are a relatively low-cost item, they provide invaluable protection when properly specified.
