Strainers are important components of piping systems to protect equipment from potential damage due to dirt and other particles that may be carried by the process fluid.

During system start-up and flushing, strainers may be placed upstream of pumps to protect them from construction debris that may have been left in the pipe. The figures here below depicts typical start-up strainers. Permanent strainers may be installed upstream of control valves, traps, and instrutments to protect them from corrosion products that may become dislodged and carried throughout the piping system.

Our comprehensive range of ball valves have developed an outstanding reputation for quality and reliability from cost effective versions through to high specification top end products to suit the most demanding of applications.
