We carry two different styles of strainer (an inline strainer, and side inlet strainer), each with unique features making them applicable for various straining situations. It is recommended that a strainer be placed after a pump, as suction could damage the strainer core.
Additionally, it is very important that a strainer be placed in the correct orientation so as to not blow out the mesh. The flow direction should always push the mesh against the perforated core so that the mesh is supported properly. Tri Clamp inline strainers mount similar to a spool with both ends clamped into a fitting. The mesh is designed to be porous enough so as not to clog too easily, but still trap large solids from passing through. We offer mesh in several different sizes for our inline strainers.
Notice: The strainer screens are designed for Inline Strainers only. Warning: Do not run backwards as you risk blowing out your mesh filter. The correct flow direction puts pressure on the mesh screen pushing against the interior perf screen which provides support. Please understand our quantity packs share from a communal inventory. A buyout of one pack type will consume inventory of other packs.
