VY Series Cast ‘Y’ Type Strainers

These  ‘Y’ strainers are manufactured in cast steel or cast stainless steel with wall thicknesses exceeding the requirements of ANSI B16.34

            • Flange dimensions are to ANSI B16.5 Class 150 
            • Face to Face dimensions are to ANSI B16.10.
              ‘Y’ strainers are the most economical means of coarse filtration in pressure applications to provide protection for downstream equipment such as pumps, flow meters, etc.
They remove coarse particles that would otherwise damage or block valuable equipment. ‘Y’ strainers should only be used where the dirt load is extremely low as the screen area of the filter element is relatively small.

VB Series Cast Bucket Strainers

This compact design Basket Strainer has full bore inline connections providing initial low pressure loss. They have a removable top cover for easy basket removal for cleaning.

Flange drilling can be requested for alternate flange standards within the pressure/temperature limits of ANSI 150# rating such as AS2129 Table “D” or “E”, JIS 10K, DIN PN10 or other.

These Basket Strainers are an economical alternative to ‘Y’ strainers and offer other benefits such as the top entry cover, which reduces fluid loss when the strainer is opened for cleaning. This can be most beneficial in applications requiring cleanliness or where the fluid may be hazardous.

The VB Strainer is ideal in applications requiring protection for downstream equipment.  Eg. pump suction, upstream of flow meters, controls valves etc. Flow rates to suit pipeline diameters at 3 m/s velocity.

VYS Series Cast 'Y' Type Strainers

The “VYS” range of ‘Y’ strainers is high quality investment cast with screwed female BSP connections. The element closure is a screw-in plug and features a separate blow down plug.  Both plugs have Teflon seals provided for temperature capability up to  260°C.

These strainers are very economical due to the manufacturing process and therefore can be competitive with lower quality materials, which may normally be installed in many mechanical service applications.
