  • Individually designed to meet your requirements.
  • Available in all materials including fiberglass and PVC.
  • Baskets designed for full line pressure.
  • Easy installation and basket maintenance.
  • Retention from 5 microns.
  • Can be fully automated.
  • Economical.

DUPLEX DESIGNS

  • No interruption of process during basket maintenance.
  • Can be fully automated.

Duplex strainers are used if the operator cannot shut down the system for routine maintenance.

Wire Cloth Micron Retention

Newark Wire Cloth stocks thousands of wire cloth specifications in many different alloys. A few of the more commonly stocked specifications are noted in this chart. The wire mesh is detailed with respect to its wire diameter and opening size. The opening size is noted in microns and inches, when applicable.

Wire Cloth Flow Rates

To determine flow through a strainer, find the intersection of viscosity on the retention curve, and read down to the flow rate. Multiply the flow rate by the basket area. In many cases, the resulting flow rate will be greater than the actual process flow, resulting in a lower pressure drop. If more exacting data is required, please phone or send us your operating conditions by fax.
Example:

The flow rate through an S40 strainer… with a 30 CPS fluid and 104 micron basket… would be: 3 GPM/SQ IN. x 252 SQ IN. = 756 GPM.
