Industrial-type strainers are designed to collect foreign materials and dirt present in a refrigeration system at minimum pressure drop to minimize damage to or affect on the function of the control valves. The strainers may be close coupled to the company’s control valves that are sized from 0.5 through 4" (13 through 100 mm) flanged. Strainers are supplied with a stainless steel (60 mesh) screen and a 0.375" FPT drain connection for safe cleaning inline. Large sizes are available in 5, 6 and 8" (125, 150 and 200 mm) as a direct welded type.
