Flanged Or Threaded Simplex Basket Strainers
125 LB. SIMPLEX THREADED
These strainers are used to remove foreign matter from pipe lines and provide inexpensive protection to pumps, meters, valves, etc. In appropriate material, the 125 series can be specified for drinking water, cooling water, sea water, etc.
These strainers have been designed for applications where easy maintenance & large capacity straining are needed. Service time is minimal because the cover is secured with quick opening, non-yoke type knobs. Both the cover & the basket use O-ring seals, eliminating the need to replace gaskets each time the strainer is serviced. This, combined with the machined basket sheet, eliminates particle bypass. With the appropriate wire mesh lining, these models can be used to strain particles as small as five microns.
