1-1/4 inch brass strainer features 1.6Mpa working pressure and the threaded connection, 32mm Y type filter, low price, easy to install and use, can effectively remove unwanted particles and debris from fluid systems.
Y-type strainers can remove impurities, debris, and solid particles from fluid or gas pipelines in industrial and commercial applications. They are typically used in applications where a high flow rate is required, and where there is a risk of damage to equipment or processes from the presence of solid particles.
Tips: How does a Y-type strainer work?
A Y-type strainer operates as a mechanical filter in a pipeline to remove solid particles and debris from fluids. Shaped like a Y, the strainer has an inlet and a larger outlet connected by a straining element, usually a mesh or perforated screen. As fluid flows through the inlet, the Y shape directs it toward the straining element. Solid particles are captured by the strainer while the filtered fluid continues through the outlet.
The Y strainer is effective in preventing contaminants from entering downstream equipment, such as pumps, valves, or meters. Regular maintenance involves removing the strainer cap, cleaning or replacing the straining element, and reinstalling the cap. This simple yet efficient design makes Y strainers suitable for various applications, including water, oil, and gas systems. They find widespread use in industrial settings where the integrity of downstream components relies on the cleanliness of the fluid passing through the pipeline.
