The duplex design of Eaton’s Model 50 basket strainer allows it to operate continuously, so system flow never has to be shut down to clean the strainer basket. The strainer features two chambers linked by a pair of synchronized butterfly valves, allowing system flow to be diverted from one chamber to the other without shutting the flow off, and helping keep start-up pressure drops low. The design allows the total basket size to be reduced, while the available screening area is increased. Quick-opening covers make basket changing or clean-ing quick and easy. Designed for large-size, high-flow-rate piping systems, the strainers are available in sizes for 10-in. through 18-in. pipelines with flanged connections and iron or bronze construction.
