Custom Fabricated Tee Strainers

 

Tee strainer with quick opening coverTee strainers are a style of compact custom fabricated simplex strainer to satisfy requirements that a cast Y strainer cannot, such as being constructed with a corrosion allowance, having an ASME code stamp or made with an oversized body for a higher open area ratio.  We wrote an article "How to Choose Between a Wye (Y) and Tee Strainer" if you are not sure which style is most appropriate for your application

In addition to being a compact design, tee strainers can be installed vertically, if the flow path downwards, just like a Y strainer.

 

When comparing the flow coefficient values of tee strainers and basket strainers you'll notice that they are very similar, meaning you can take advantage of the compact tee strainer size without sacrificing (making higher) your differential pressure.  This is possible when using a special convoluted screen design to increase the total filtration area available.

 

The greatest difference between tee strainers and basket strainers is the volume of particulate which can be retained.  The screen design and vessel size for tee strainers is less than it is for a corresponding size basket strainer, which means that tee strainers are better suited for applications having a low percentage of particulates.  This makes tee strainers ideal as condensate and boiler feed pump suction strainers due to their low clean differential pressure and the expected volume of particulate low.

 

Our website lists the most common configuration within the 2" and 24" sizes, which have either flanged or butt weld connections and are based upon either 150# or 300# pressure class designs.  You will also notice we offer two types of screen chamber closure, bolted and quick-opening.  The quick-opening design enables quicker access to the screen chamber and is generally acceptable for the lower pressure 150# pressure class design.

 

If you have an application for a higher pressure class design, and exotic alloy, special coatings or other customization which aren't shown online, please use our inquiry form to describe your design criteria so we can issue a proposal.

We've taken a unique approach to this website.  We list our tee strainers by material in order from smallest to largest size and in addition to discounted pricing, we provide links to their outline drawing and embed a differential pressure calculator within the webpage to help ensure the strainer you choose is properly sized for the intended application.
