In the area of industrial business, often dealing with chemicals, gases, oil, and other hazardous materials there are common challenges. Proper treatment and handling of these materials happens to be one of the most difficult of the bunch. For this there are a variety of tools and in this case we are going to be discussing strainers.
Strainers are used to process such materials in a handful of industries including:
- Pulp and paper
- Metal and mining
- Water and waste
Each of these have unique designs that specialize for specific needs and outcomes. A few of these to consider are:
Automatic strainers are going to have a list of features that may be exactly what you are looking for to simplify your business needs. Features include:
- Lower inertia tubular backwash, which enhances backwash efficiency and minimizes power requirements.
- Outer annulus is correctly proportioned to decrease pressure drops.
- Wedge wire screen has high strength and optimizes performance.
- No flow restriction
- Bottom chamber is large and slows fluid speed prior to straining.

Keeping Pipelines Clear is Essential
The idea behind a strainer is a better functioning and more reliable pipeline. Strainers enable the pipelines to run clear and keep themselves clean. The problem of unwanted materials running through pipelines is a never-ending one; the good thing is that there are options to make it manageable.
While there are various pieces of equipment that are designed to take care of these problems flowing through the pipeline, there are none that are as reliable as a strainer. Some even suggest to have a filter installed and then install a strainer after to maximize the chance for success of keeping a pipeline clear.
As mentioned earlier, there are several industries that rely on pipelines being clear and reliable for an umber of reasons. This is an option to make sure they do exactly that, take a look and see which filter fits your needs.
