Eaton Model 85 Y strainers are engineered to withstand aggressive industrial and commercial applications. Y strainers protect downstream process system components by mechanically removing unwanted solids from liquid, gas or steam lines by means of a perforated or wire mesh straining element.
To protect against any bypass, the Model 85 Y strainers are manufactured with a precision machined screen seat on the body of the strainer and high quality stainless steel screens fabricated to fit the strainer body perfectly. Model 85 Y strainers are available in carbon steel or stainless steel for pipeline sizes from 1/4" to 10" with threaded, flanged or socket weld connections.
For cost effective straining solutions, Y strainers work well in applications in which the amount of material to be removed from the flow is relatively small--resulting in long intervals between screen cleanings. The strainer screen is manually cleaned by shutting down the line and removing the strainer cap.
For applications with heavier dirt loading, Y strainers fitted with a “blow-off” connection permit cleaning of the screen without removing it from the strainer body.
Types of Connections
Y strainers are available in a wide variety of end types
including threaded, flange, or welded. Flanges are designed
to ANSI specifications.
Special flanges such as ring joints are often available as well.
Y strainers can also be constructed to US Navy flange dimensions,
which are different from commercial standards. For extremely
high pressure applications, Y strainers with socket or butt weld
end connections are often specified.
