“Y” Strainers take their name from their configuration. They are most commonly used in pressurized lines, gas or liquid, but can also be used in suction or vacuum conditions. They are intended for applications where small amounts of solid particulate are expected, and where clean-out will be infrequent. If solids will flush easily from the screen, and fluid can be exhausted to atmosphere, a blow-down valve on the drain port will allow clean-out without removal of the screen, and without interrupting the process flow.
FPS Pvt. Ltd. 'Y' type strainers are available in CAST IRON, Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel. A machined, tapered seat ensures a perfect fit for the removable, stainless steel screen. 2” and larger come complete with flanged blow-off cover, gasket & plug. 1 1/2” and smaller come complete with solid threaded cover and gasket. May be installed in vertical or horizontal pipelines with blow-off connection at the lower end of the screen.
