The Model 50 duplex basket strainer has been engineered to protect piping system components, such as meters, pumps, and instrumentation, from damage and to help prevent expensive unscheduled downtime. It runs continuously to remove possible damage-causing particulate matter from the system flow, taking away unwanted matter through the use of two strainer baskets operating independently within a single housing. The switching of the flow from one strainer basket to the other — so that the dirty basket can be cleaned — is accomplished by moving the operating handle through a 90-degree arc. It’s impossible to stop the flow because of the unique port design of the diverter plug. The entire operation takes less than 30 seconds, no tools are needed, and the diverter plug is automatically positioned in the right spot by integral stops.
