Platinum glass filled polypropylene (PGFPP) simplex strainers lack the black pigment of the GFPP material and are otherwise designed the same as Hayward's PVC, CPVC and GFPP basket strainers. PGFPP enables us to support socket fusion connections in both USA and Metric standards in addition to threaded and ANSI flanged connections. In some applications a light colored strainer is preferred because it might be easier to determine contamination and damage.
Hayward's one piece injection molded design results in a heavy-duty strainer to withstand the most demanding applications. All of the connections (inlet, outlet, vent, drain and cover) are designed to be used without tools, significantly reducing the chance of damage due to over-tightening. You will notice there are two outlet ports, a high and low port. You can choose either or both depending upon your ideal piping requirements. The inlet is located above the lower outlet port and across from the other outlet port. Usually the lower outlet is used as a drain, but sometimes having the inlet and outlet located on the same side is advantageous. An optional ball valve drain kit may be used on the lower true union port for quicker and safer drainage of aggressive fluids.
The strainer basket is made of regular GFPP (black) material but can also be supplied in PVC, CPVC and 316SS materials; all of the non-alloy baskets are offered in 1/32", 1/16", 1/8" and 3/16" perforation with 316SS available in both perforated and mesh lined designs. The strainer basket is angled to minimize pressure drop across the strainer as well as to prevent "spinning" of the basket during a high velocity upset condition. The basket handle always remains above the liquid level for safe access.
Shipments are typically made within 1-2 days after receipt of an order directly from the factory to reduce lead time and shipping cost. Orders over $3,000 ship for free anywhere within the continental USA. All PGFPP simplex strainers have a 2 year warranty.
The following cross-reference table lists part numbers by connection size and type:
½", 3/4" and 1" Basket Strainers standard perforation is 1/32".
1½" thru 8" Basket Strainers standard perforation is 1/8".
You may substitute 1/32", 1/16", 1/8" or 3/16" perforated baskets in lieu of standard basket perforation for no charge.
Strainer baskets are same material as the strainer body.
½" thru 2" PVC Strainers are supplied with both socket and threaded end connectors.
