Bronze and Stainless Steel
The presence of foreign particles in an automatic valve may seriously affect its dependability. The installation of a strainer close to the inlet side of the valve is the best means of preventing the entrance of pipe chips, scale, rust, pipe dope, welding slag or sediment into the valve, provided the screen is periodically removed for cleaning.
Strainer bodies have screwed ends. Screens are stainless steel with opening sizes as listed in tables below. Other sizes can be furnished upon request. Liberal straining area provides for fluid passage at minimum pressure drop. Screens are easily removed for cleaning. Strainers are furnished with NPT blow off connections unplugged. See charts below for blow-off sizes (C Dim.)
