The Model 50 Plug Type Duplex Strainer is a simple, economical, and trouble free design that has been installed worldwide in a broad number of applications.
This duplex strainer is actually a high quality, pressure rated plug valve with integral straining baskets. Switching the flow from one basket to the other is accomplished by moving the operating handle through a 90 degree arc. The flow is not interrupted when switching the chamber in service due to the design of the diverter plug and no tools are needed.
A lifting jack built into the duplex strainer is used to lift the diverter plug off of its seat. After the switching operation the lifting jack is used to reseat the plug. The lifting jack is specially designed to lift and seat the plug easily, even under high pressures. A built in stop limits the distance the diverter plug can be raised. This minimizes the possibility of material bypassing the plug while it is rotated. It also reduces debris from building up under the plug and making it difficult to reseat.

The Model 50 Duplex Strainer is your best choice for most applications. Its rugged design and ease of operation have made it the duplex strainer of choice around the world in hundreds of different industries.
