Industrial Conical Strainers

Industrial conical strainers, also known as temporary strainers or cone strainers, are specialized types of strainers designed to remove solid particles from fluids in piping systems. Here’s a closer look at industrial conical strainers:

  1. Design: Conical strainers feature a conical-shaped screen or filter element that is mounted within a strainer body. The conical shape allows for efficient filtration of solid particles while minimizing pressure drop. The strainer body typically has inlet and outlet connections for installation in a pipeline.

  2. Operation: Fluid flows through the inlet connection and into the conical strainer body. As the fluid passes through the conical screen, solid particles are trapped on the surface or within the mesh of the screen while the clean fluid continues through the outlet connection. The collected particles are retained within the strainer until the strainer is cleaned or replaced.

  3. Material of Construction: Industrial conical strainers are commonly constructed from materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel, bronze, or other alloys. The choice of material depends on factors such as the type of fluid, temperature, pressure, and corrosion resistance requirements.

  4. Applications: Conical strainers are used in various industries and applications where the removal of solid particles from fluids is necessary. They are particularly useful in temporary or startup situations where a more permanent strainer installation may not be practical. Common applications include commissioning of new piping systems, system startup after maintenance, and protection of downstream equipment during initial operation.

  5. Particle Size and Filtration Rating: The particle size that conical strainers can effectively remove depends on the mesh size or perforation size of the strainer screen. Strainers are available with different filtration ratings, typically measured in microns, to suit specific particle size requirements.

  6. Installation and Removal: Industrial conical strainers are typically installed temporarily in a pipeline during startup or commissioning activities. They are often mounted between flanges using bolted connections. After the startup phase is complete or once the strainer becomes clogged with debris, it is removed from the pipeline for cleaning or replacement.

  7. Maintenance: Proper maintenance of industrial conical strainers is essential to ensure their continued effectiveness and prevent clogging or damage to downstream equipment. Maintenance tasks may include periodic inspection, cleaning or replacing the strainer element, and removing collected debris from the strainer housing.

Industrial conical strainers offer an efficient and cost-effective solution for temporary filtration needs in piping systems. Proper selection, installation, and maintenance of conical strainers are essential to ensure the efficient and reliable operation of fluid systems in industrial applications.
