T-Type Simplex Basket Strainers have been successfully trialled for a Queensland based provider of diesel powered waste and energy solutions, and developed for local and international resource companies. As most of the Systems are containerised the selection criteria centered around equipment which could provide compact size, a range of Screen sizes, effective dirt handling capacity and low differential operating pressure. Simplex type Pipeline Strainers are installed to capture foreign particles and debris from process flow streams to protect downstream equipment such as pumps, valves, gauges, instrumentation and other critical equipment.
A “basket”, “screen” or “element” is fitted inside the body of the strainer which is sized to capture optimum sized particles. The construction of the element can be Perforated Metal, Wire Mesh, Woven Wire Mesh or a combination of these materials. When the internal element (basket) becomes clogged the strainer is isolated from the flow stream and the element is removed for cleaning or replacement via a blank cover plate or blind flange on top of the strainer body.
Common materials of construction are Cast Iron, Cast Steel or Cast Stainless Steel and the standard size range is 1” (25mm) through 20” (500mm). Simplex Basket Strainers are often selected for installations where the dimensional envelope is restricted as they are compact, have a relatively large basket area to bore ratio, provide a low differential operating pressure, easy to install and robust construction for reliability in service.
HORIZON Industrial supplies a comprehensive range of Pipeline Strainers, and accessories to the Manufacturing, Resource, Process and Energy Sectors. Extensive product knowledge and many years of experience are backed by field-proven performance in the design, selection and application of Pipeline Strainers and Filters for customers in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
Innovative solutions provider HORIZON Industrial has supplied Y-TYPE Strainers in Forged Steel, Cast Steel and Cast Stainless Steel in sizes ranging from DN50 (2”) through DN300 (12”) and for operational pressures of ANSI 150lb through ANSI 600lb.
The strainers are installed at an Aluminium Smelter on a range of applications throughout the facility. HORIZON continues to supply Spare Parts for these Strainers.
As well as Y-Type Strainers HORIZON Industrial stocks and supplies Forged Strainers, T-Type Strainers, Bathtub Strainers, Duplex Strainers, Tee Strainers, Basket Strainers, Offset Strainers, Diaphragm Strainers, and Self-Cleaning Strainers.
In addition to the range of complete Strainers HORIZON Industrial also supplies an extensive range of Replacement Strainer Baskets and Change-Over Strainer Elements to suit all other Strainer manufacturers' products.
Specialty Products supplier HORIZON Industrial has provided DN50 (2”) Y-TYPE Cast Iron Strainers to a mining site in far North Queensland. The strainers were required to protect suction pump impellers from being damaged by erosive particles in the flow stream.
The products were supplied from stock.
In addition to Cast Iron Y-Type Strainers, HORIZON Industrial stocks and supplies Forged Strainers, T-Type Strainers, Bathtub Strainers, Duplex Strainers, Tee Strainers, Basket Strainers, Offset Strainers, Diaphragm Strainers, Cast Steel T-Type & Y-Type Strainers, Cast Stainless Steel T-Type & Y-Type Strainers and Self-Cleaning Strainers.
HORIZON Industrial supplies an extensive range of Replacement Strainer Baskets and Strainer Elements to suit all other strainer manufacturer’s products.
HORIZON Industrial has supplied a number of Basket Strainers for a new oilfield development project in South Australia.
T-Type fabricated Basket Strainers were supplied for various duties in sizes ranging from 3” (DN80) through 6” (DN150) and pressure ratings up to ANSI 600lb.
A unique feature of the strainer design was the inclusion of Quick Opening Closures for accessing the strainer baskets during change-outs. Quick Opening Closures provide fast access whilst maintaining a high level of operator safety through early warning devices such as pressure bleed screws.
In addition some strainers are fitted with Pleated Strainer Baskets to provide a substantial increase in the open surface area. This feature significantly increases the time between screen change-outs to save on operational and maintenance costs.
Full Quality Assurance and MDR Documentation packages were supplied with each Strainer.
