Automatic self-cleaning strainers are commonly used on water service where the disposal of debris and backwash water is not a problem. Continuous flow is assured and protection is provided for nozzles, pumps, valves, heat exchangers and other process equipment. These high quality strainers can also successfully handle other fluids such as white water, black liquor, starch, fuel and lubricating oil, caustic solutions and cooking oils. A determining factor in these cases is the recycling of the backwash fluid. Automatic self-cleaning strainers will significantly reduce maintenance costs and provide uninterrupted flow. They are a particularly worthwhile investment where solids loading are high or upset conditions occur. Frequent cleaning and servicing of manual strainers is costly and, if not properly done, serious disruptions to the entire piping system can occur. Also, they are an ideal solution for maintenance problems where the strainer is in an inaccessible or remote location. Automatic strainers can easily replace duplex basket strainers.
