Basket Strainers

Basket Type Strainer shaped like a basket and usually installed in a vertical cylinder. This Strainer is very easy to clean, since foreign particle is captured in the basket after change over the valve without getting plant shut-down. It can also sometimes offer more straining surface area than a plate strainer, improving flow rates, or decreasing pressure loss through the strainer. Basket Type Filter elements are generally used from stainless steel (S.S. 304/316/304L/316L) for corrosion resistance & long life performance
