Model 30R simplex strainers are a lower cost alternative to the cast iron version of the model 72 simplex strainers. Available in 1½" to 8" sizes, the model 30R basket chamber cover can be removed without tools, it has a drain plug and a machined basket seat.
How to choose between the model 30R and model 72 cast iron simplex strainers?
The model 30R 1½" - 2½" sizes have an equivalent or larger gross screen area compared to the model 72 and therefore these sizes represent a good value. The model 72 has the gross screen area advantage for the 3" through 8" sizes, which means that the model 30Rs would likely require basket cleaning more frequently.
