Fluidtrol SW Series Basket Strainers are specifically designed for aquatic applications. While standard applications mount on the suction side of pumps, the SW Series provides the necessary mechanical durability to be located on the pressure side of the pump system. Hydrostatically tested at 100 psi and rated for 75 psi working pressure. They include a heavy-duty stainless basket (1/8 inch perforated).
- Engineered specifically for heavy-duty aquatic facility usage.
- Composite laminate construction offers corrosion resistance of PVC and the mechanical strength of fiberglass.
- Solvent fused and back welded prior to addition of fiberglass over-wrap.
- Material creates minimum pressure drop in the line due to a large open area (pipe diameter ratios).
Lid Attachment Assembly. Machined from solid 304 SS bar and should outlast the strainer. Number of T-handles depends on size of strainer. Example: 10 inch and below have 6 T-Handles.
Acrylic Lid. Clear acrylic lid features almost crystal clarity and weather-ability. Lid thickness depends on size of strainer. 10 inch and below have 1 inch thick lids. 12 inch and above have 1.5 inch thick lids.
Flange Connection. All strainers are supplied with loose rig flanges. PVC strainers utilize SCH 80 flanges produced from PVC type 1 and conform to ANSI B16.5, Class 150.
Strainer Identification. All strainers are given labels with a serial number for future reference. Complete records are kept at the factory. In the event an end user needs assistance, parts or replacement, Fluidtrol is able to identify the exact strainer. Even special circumstances of each individual unit can be filed.
