Griffco Valve, Inc. introduces its new line of Y-Strainers designed to enhance the performance of chemical feed systems. The addition of a Griffco Y-Strainer to the suction (inlet) side of a chemical feed pump will prevent debris from entering the pump and clogging the check valves or damaging the interior of the pump head.
Available worldwide from Griffco and its distributors, the new Y-Strainers feature a standard screen perforation of 1/32 inch with other perforation sizes or a 316 Stainless Steel mesh available on request. Materials of construction include PVC, clear PVC, and CPVC with NPT, Socket, or BSPT connections in five standards sizes from 1/2 to 2 inches (DN 15 to DN 50). The new Griffco Valve Y-Strainers have a 2:1 open area ratio and hex cap for easy screen access, and can be used for horizontal of vertical installation, the company states. True union, flanged, and European connections are optionally available.
