How do you install a cone strainer?

How do you install a cone strainer?

Cone style temporary strainers can be installed with the pointy end either facing down stream (with the flow) or upstream (against the flow). They are typically pointed upstream with particles tending to collect from the outer sections of the pipe inward; this orientation is better for higher velocity flow rates.

What is conical strainer?

Conical Strainers are temporary devices for mechanically removing unwanted solids from liquid, gas or steam lines by means of a perforated or wire mesh straining element. They are temporary used in pipelines to protect pumps, meters, control valves, steam traps, regulators and other process equipment.

What is temporary strainer?

Temporary strainer is a startup strainer, also known as conical strainer or basket strainer, and is installed in a system to remove unwanted debris from the process stream. These strainers come in conical as well as basket shape along with plate strainers.

Can a strainer be installed vertically?

Y-Strainers can be installed either vertically or horizontally. A basket strainer must be installed horizontally. Whether you choose a wye or basket strainer, a spare basket or screen should always be purchased at the same time.

What is Startup strainer?

A Startup Strainer is installed into a pipeline system to remove unwanted debris from the pipeline flow. In contrast to other strainers, Startup Strainers are temporary strainers used in pipelines during system startup. Straining of the pipeline flow is accomplished via a perforated or mesh lined screen.

Why are strainers cone shaped?

Their shape involves a cone of mesh that fits within your system. Conical strainers offer a large filtration area, letting you catch more debris. They’re often used for products that have been recently welded. During the welding process, it’s possible that slag or bits of debris may have formed inside the pipes.

How do you use a conical strainer?

To filter and defat a homemade stock, set the chinois over a large bowl. Then carefully pour the stock and its contents into the cone. Most of the liquid will pass through the mesh, but the solids left behind still hold flavorful juices. Using the pestle, press the solids to release these juices.

Can a wye strainer be installed on its side?

Y strainers are a valuable addition to many piping systems as they can be installed vertically or horizontally. Add that to the fact that they can be used to transport steam, gas, or liquid, they are an excellent choice for a strainer.

What is a basket strainer?

Basket Strainer. An official definition adopted by the Fluid Controls Institute is: “A closed vessel with cleanable screen element designed to remove and retain foreign particles down to 0.001 inch diameter from various flowing fluids.”

What is the witches hat on pipeline?

Temporary Cone & Basket (Witches Hat) Strainers are used for start up of new or revamped piping systems. They provide inexpensive protection for costly valves, pumps, meters and other mechanical equipment.
