Self Cleaning Strainers

Posted in Pipeline Strainers

Unlike conventional strainers such as Y-Strainers, Simplex & Fabricated (T-Type) Strainers and Duplex Strainers... Self-Cleaning Automatic Strainers provide an effective means of filtering liquids without the need to shut down the system flow or to clean the screen element manually.

Once the maximum pre-set pressure differential has been reached the strainer switches to the self-cleaning mode and the back-flush valve opens. At the same time a specially designed cleaning head rotates across the surface of the screen element to drain away the collected solids. Once the screen element is clean and the differential pressure has returned to the minimum level the unit switches back to normal filter mode. During the cleaning/back-flush mode approximately 5% of the continuous flow rate is used to drain away the collected solids.

Self-Cleaning Automatic Strainer Systems are designed and produced to suit low, medium and high pressure requirements and a range of filtration levels. Vessel and internal component materials such as Steel, Stainless Steel, Duplex Stainless Steel and others are readily available, as are special internal linings such as rubber and epoxy coatings. Equipment packages can be supplied as skid-mounted or free standing and process control components such as valves, instrumentation and electrical are included as a standard feature.

Design and manufacturing code compliance is a standard feature as is stringent Quality Control and Quality Assurance in accordance with recognised audit standards and certifying authorities.

Start Up & Commissioning Strainers

Posted in Pipeline Strainers

Start-Up and Commissioning Strainers are employed during the testing and commissioning phase of construction projects to trap debris as a means of protecting sensitive equipment and/or instrumentation. Typical configurations are Cone (Witch's Hat), Top Hat (Basket) or Plate. 

During the construction phase spool pieces will be fitted to the pipeline at specific locations to facilitate the installation of the Strainers. The placement of the temporary strainer spools is usually at a point in the system where critical downstream equipment such as valves, pumps, gauges, instrumentation and other process equipment need to be protected during start-up.

The basic construction is usually perforated metal or welded wire mesh. Finer mesh can be fitted to either the outside or the inside of the basic assembly depending upon the direction of flow and/or the method preferred to capture and remove collected debris. The Strainers can be installed horizontally or vertically

Other Strainer types that can be used during the start-up and commissioning phase of a project are: Bathtub Strainers, Wedge Wire Flat Plate Strainers, Basket Strainers, Tee Strainers, Diaphragm Strainers and Reinforced Plate Strainers.

With over 30 years experience, HORIZON Industrial provides innovative filtration solutions for customers across all industries. All Strainers are provided with code and statutory compliance along with stringent quality control in accordance with recognised standards and certifying authorities.

Duplex Strainers

Posted in Pipeline Strainers

Duplex Pipeline Strainers are also known as Twin Basket Strainers and Multi-Basket Strainers. It is a type of Filter built into a liquid or gas piping system and is used to remove particles of dirt and debris from the flow stream and/or the internal walls of the pipe. The Duplex Strainer System consists of two separate strainer elements (or baskets) housed within a special filter body. The system is operated via a valve (or valves in a manifold format) incorporated between the two basket elements to divert the flow of liquid or gas through one Strainer while the other Strainer Element is being cleaned. On some Strainers, the valve will operate automatically at a pre-determined differential pressure setting and the Strainer will perform a self-cleaning operation.

These types of Strainers are installed in pipeline systems where it is not possible to stop the flow to change out the Element or Basket. Depending upon the pipe size, they are capable of filtration down to 40 Microns.

Duplex Basket Strainers are installed in industries where the impurities (particles or debris) are mostly solids and unlike other types of strainers, they are significantly easier to operate and maintain. Industries where duplex basket strainers are commonly used include: power generation, chemical, oil, gas, pulp and paper, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, metals and mining, water and wastewater, fire services, refineries, food, paint and process industries.

In addition to the wide range of Standard Cast Duplex Strainer Assemblies it is also possible to provide strainers as pre-fabricated assemblies using other basic strainer types such as Y-Strainers, Simplex & Fabricated (T-Type) Strainers and Cast and Forged Strainers. These assemblies incorporate valved piping  manifolds using Ball, Butterfly or Gate Valves.

Complete assemblies are designed and produced to suit low, medium and high pressure requirements and a wide range of filtration levels.
