Different types of strainers

There are two types of strainers, basket and Y-type


A Y strainer is typically used when there are small amounts of material and particles to be collected, and it must be placed facing the downward flow. For automatic cleaning, Y strainers can come with a blow-off connection.

Y strainers have a more significant pressure drop with liquids and a lower pressure drop with gases.

Basket type

Basket type strainers come in two types, single and double.


A single basket (simplex strainer) is used when the flow or process can be stopped for a short period. 

A double basket (duplex strainer) is used when the flow or process cannot be stopped and must continue to flow.
