Basket Strainer is a type of mechanical filter used to remove unwanted particles and Impurities from fluid stream. It consists of a cylindrical or spherical body with an inlet and an outlet, housing a removable basket-like straining filter element.
- Removable Basket: The basket strainer’s straining element is removable, allowing for easy cleaning and maintenance. The removable basket also facilitates inspection of the collected debris.
- Construction Materials: Basket kind of strainers are commonly constructed from durable materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel, or exotic alloys, depending on the application requirements. This ensures their longevity, resistance to corrosion, and compatibility with various fluids and operating conditions.
- Perforated or Mesh Lining: The straining element of a basket kind of strainer can have either perforations or a mesh lining. Perforated baskets are suitable for applications with larger particle sizes, while mesh-lined baskets provide finer filtration for smaller particles.
