YStrainers are typically used in applications where the amount of solids to be removed is small, and where
frequent cleanout is not required. Besides their obvious uses in liquid applications, they are most often
installed in gaseous services such as steam, air, nitrogen, natural gas etc. The compact, cylindrical
shape of the YStrainer is very strong and can readily accommodate the high pressures that are common
in this type of service. A steam pressure of 1500 psi will often be found at temperatures of 500°C. The strength of the standard Y-Strainer design can easily accommodate these extreme parameters although the material of construction
will probably be alloy steel.
A Y-Strainer has the advantage of being able to be installed in either a horizontal or vertical position.
However, in both cases, the screening element must be on the 'downside' of the strainer body so the
entrapped solids can be properly collected and held for disposal.
Y-Strainers are offered to meet the specific requirements of the intended service. Carbon Steel construction
is offered when strength to meet pressure/temperature parameters or resistance to mechanical shock
is required. Stainless steel is a common material for corrosion resistance considerations.
We can also offer a full range of Model 80 Y-Strainers covering flanged end connections to 1500lb rating and socket weld/threaded connections to
