316 Stainless Steel T Strainers
custom fabricated strainers are for applications that require features not
offered with our cast
strainers and when a
custom fabricated model 90 isn't compact enough. Model 91 Tee
Strainers are a condensed form of a simplex strainer with the added advantage of being able to
be installed horizontally or vertically. Tee strainers can be
provided with an ASME code stamp, have a flanged vent and/or drain ports,
special coatings or practically any other customization because they are
custom fabricated to the design criteria submitted.
screen design for Model 91 tee strainers is convoluted, thereby increasing our
open area and reducing the pressure drop across the strainer. We only list the
150# and 300# pressure class versions online, however we can provide in 600#
and higher class if required.
common connections types are listed in the table below (ANSI flanged and butt
weld); if you require a different connection type, please use the inquiry form
and we'll advise accordingly.
note we offer two different basket chamber cover designs, the bolted and
quick-opening style. The bolted style has 4 or more studs and nuts for
retaining the cover. The quick-opening style has a hinged cover and
utilizes swing-bolts for quicker access to the vessel. Although we do
offer a quick-opening cover for the 300# class tee strainers, we do not list
them online, so inquire about this if desired.
important to check your clean differential pressure, some of the smaller sizes
have lower capacities than their basket style version (Model 90 simplex
You can calculate the approximate clean differential pressure drop by selecting the
strainer connection size, inputting your flow rate (GPM), inputting the
specific gravity if other than water (sg of water = 1) and select the
viscosity range if other than water (SSU of water = 30). Click
"Update" to refresh the data and be sure that the clean differential is ≤2
PSI for the intended basket retention.
The lead time for custom fabricated tee strainers is typically within
8-10 weeks for readiness for shipment
after receipt of your order, although is could be less if you order the
standard configuration and for smaller sizes. Whenever lead time is
critical, please contact us and we'll provide a specific lead time estimate
based upon the complete description.
