These strainers are specially designed to be installed in conjunction with solenoid valves. Their mesh is selected so that no particles enter and disrupt the operation of the solenoid valve. For smooth operation of solenoid valves these strainers are mandatory
For best results, the strainer is installed right at the inlet of the solenoid valve or as close to it as possible for larger sizes.
The material of construction for the body is CI whilst for the mesh it is stainless steel.
- Retains contaminants eg. slag, weld beads, pipe fittings.
- Pressure drop insignificant.
