Housing - Y Type Strainers

“Y” Strainers take their name from their configuration. They are most commonly used in pressurized lines, gas or liquid, but can also be used in suction or vacuum conditions. The compact and lightweight design, and the quick and easy cleaning ability, the Y-filter found in many areas of their deployment.

They are intended for applications where small amounts of solid particulate are expected, and where clean-out will be infrequent. If solids will flush easily from the screen, and fluid can be exhausted to atmosphere, a blow-down valve on the drain port will allow clean-out without removal of the screen, and without interrupting the process flow.

Y-filters consist of a housing with opposing inlet and outlet flange. Between these lines is a cylindrical filter unit, which is flushed from the inside out by the medium. All filtered components are collected inside the filter unit. Using the drain plug can relieve pressure, the filter unit and the medium can be discharged. After removing the plate, the entire filter unit can be removed and cleaned or replaced downloads.
