Product Description
Y Strainer takes its name from its design. It is a device that mechanically removes unwanted solids from liquid, steam or gas lines, by means of a wire / perforated mesh straining element.

Y-strainers offer cost-effective straining solution in numerous applications, where a small amount of material is removed from the flow, resulting in extended intervals between screen cleanings. By shutting down the line and withdrawing the strainer cap, the strainer screen is manually cleaned. Y-strainers are considered standard for the steam applications, universally in use for these applications, and often used in many another types of liquid applications.

Compact and cylindrical in shape, Y Strainer is very strong and manage high pressures. It is strictly a pressure vessel. And the Y-strainers that handle pressure up to 6000 psi are not exceptional. They are outstanding for steam, air as well as natural gas application. Here again, the high pressures are not exceptional. However, unlike steam high air pressure does not mean high temperature, and so ordinary carbon steel bodies of adequate wall thickness will generally serve.

A Y-strainer has the benefit of being able to be set up in both horizontal and vertical position. In both the cases, the screening element must be on the downside of the strainer body, so as to properly collect the trapped material in it. Also, a low-priced strainer maybe an explanation of an undersized unit. 

Stainless steel Y-strainers are used for high corrosion resistance, or for freedom from contamination. They are popular in food, chemical & pharma industries. Y-strainers are available in a variety of end connections including flanged, threaded & welded.
