There different types of Automatic Strainers
Some, like the one above, use differential pressure to reverse flow through the basket openings. We also offer less expensive and simpler designs called Flushing Strainers which enable you to "flush" material accumulated within the basket through the bottom of the strainer. The cleaning action is very similar to flushing of a toilet.
The last type of automatic strainer we offer is referred to as a Tubular Backwashing Filter. These are filters designed for high flow rate microfiltration applications and utilize permanent filter cartridges which are intermittently backwashed by controlling the flow path of the process fluid for each element. We offer internally and externally backwashed designs to handle everything from dirty paper mill water to highly viscous fluids like Plastisol.
Additional details about the various types of automatic strainers we offer is found on our website https://automaticstrainers.com or, skip right to our specialized inquiry form and we will have a specialist contact you with our recommendations.
Automatic self-cleaning strainers are used in nearly every industry to strain fresh, brackish, or salt intake water for plant services, cooling, process & fire protection:
Process Industry – Protect heat exchangers, pumps, valves and water spray nozzles.
Power Industry – Protect heat exchangers, pump seal water, traveling screen wash water.
Pulp & Paper – Removing fibers from white water filtrate preventing clogging of nozzles. Separate bark/chips for recycling.
Sewage/Waste and Water – Straining secondary effluent – thereby protecting spray nozzles while also providing clean plant service water.
Primary Metal Industry – Provide clean water for quenching, decaling, blast furnace cooling.
