Pipeline Strainers & Filters

Posted in Strainers & Filters

Pipeline Filters and Strainers are used to protect pumps, oil burners, nozzles, condenser tubes, valves, instruments, heat exchangers, gauges and other sensitive process equipment, by removing debris from the liquid or gas flow.

The body of the Pipeline Strainer houses the Filter Element or Strainer Element. The Strainer Elements can be produced in various formats such as Flat Plates, Cylindrical Baskets, Diaphragms, Multiple Baskets, Pleated, Double Wall, Reinforced and others. They are manufactured from perforated metal, welded mesh, wedgewire, woven mesh and other processed materials and a filtration aperture range of 20mm down to 40 micron can be accomodated. Some Strainer Baskets are supplied as an assembly with an outer basket supporting a finer mesh type insert to facilitate easy replacement.

Pipeline Strainers are used by industrial and commercial customers in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea for the Oil, Gas, Food, Chemical, Minerals processing, Petrochemical, Mining, Paint, Beverage, Water, Wastewater and Manufacturing industries.

Self Cleaning Strainers

Posted in Strainers & Filters

Unlike conventional Strainers such as Y-Type 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 Strainers & Filters

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.

Standard Open Areas

100%, 150%, 200% and 300%
