Y Strainer is named after their shape and normally used for course filtration. But with large filtration area can be used with fine mesh also. The strainer improves the clearance in the medium, and prolongs the life of valves; protect expensive pumps, meters and other equipment. It is suitable for water, Air, Gas, petroleum, steam and other fluids.
Body of Y strainer is normally of cast iron, cast steel or stainless steel in various grades with flanged and socket weld type end connection. Fabricated Y strainers are also available. Bolted cover Y Type strainers has low pressure drop due to higher flow area through screen.
Fabricated Y Type strainer are available in wide compatibility of body material, pressure ranges and screen sizes for various suitable application. Y Strainer has the advantage of being able to be installed in either a horizontal or vertical position. However, in both cases, the screening element must be on the downside of the strainer body so that entrapped solids particles can be properly collected.
A blow down plug on the drain port will allow clean-out without removal of the screen, and without interrupting the process flow, provided on request.
