The model GS basket strainers consist of a PVC, CPVC, Polypropylene, Halar or PVDF core with FRP overcoat and resin gel coat finish to provide the optimum combination of chemical compatibility and structural strength.
Fluidtrol model GS simplex basket strainer is available for pipelines as large as 24" and access to the strainer basket chamber is via the stainless steel T bolts and thus does not require tools.
The GS simplex basket strainers have an open area ratio of at least 4:1. Gasket grooves on the strainer body help keep the EPDM lid gasket positioned correctly. The angled basket design self-centers and is easily removed via its handle. Integral vent and drain plugs enable draining for safe basket access as well as degassing during pipeline filling.
We can provide non-alloy valves for isolation, venting and draining for an additional cost.
All GS basket strainers are designed for pressures up to 150 PSI at 73F; at elevated temperatures 73<300F the maximum pressure rating may be reduced; some core materials are more compatible with higher temperatures than others.
