Temporary plate strainers are the most compact version of a
temporary strainer, they fit nicely between a pair of pipe flanges.
These are used when the expectation for particulate is during an
upset condition and commonplace for commissioning of closed-loop
heating and cooling systems. Their flat design equates to a
reduction of pipeline open area and thus they create a pressure
drop. If the pipeline velocity and particulate loading is low,
a temporary plate strainer might be a good fit.
can provide temporary cone strainers for 150# and 300# pipelines from
3/4" to 20" in size made of carbon steel, 304LSS or 316L SS. The
standard perforation is 1/8", although we can supply with other
perforation sizes as well as with mesh lining. The mesh side
always faces upstream to enable the underlying perforated substrate
to support the delicate mesh material. Standard mesh
lining sizes are 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, 100, 150 and 200.
standard open area ratios are 100% or 150%, we can provide proposals for
longer elements as required.
