Titan BS35 simplex basket strainers are an inexpensive version of a cast carbon steel basket strainer. Available in 3/8" to 8" sizes, the Titan BS35 has a bolted basket chamber cover (thus requires tools to remove) and a drain plug.
This is a great example of the fallacy of simply comparing strainers by their connection size!
While comparing pricing and lead time are typically the deciding factors, the flow coefficient (Cv) values are somewhat lower for the 3" to 8" sizes. You can expect to clean the Titan BS35 basket strainers more frequently than the Eaton model 72 basket strainers for the 3" and larger sizes.
Our differential pressure calculator makes it easier to compare "performance". So while cost and lead time are important, performance and features should matter most. The other sizes have similar flow coefficient values and thus the decision will be based on pricing, lead time and perhaps features.
The Eaton model 72 has a machined strainer basket ring whereas the Titan BS35 uses an o-ring to ensure a positive seal between the basket and housing. This might make the Titan BS35 more resilient and improve reliability of the seal, however if there are temperature or compatibility concerns the Eaton model 72 might be a better choice. The Eaton model 72 uses a clamp style closure whereas the Titan BS35 has a bolted closure - so the Titan version requires tools to access the basket chamber.
In summary the Titan BS35 will likely cost less and ship from stock, however, check the differential pressure for your intended flow rate; it should be no greater than 2 PSI. A quick call (908.362.9981) or email is all it takes for confirmation of pricing and lead time.
