Strainers/Air Eliminators

Strainers In-Line and Angle

Strainers are installed in pipe lines ahead of meters, pumps, valves, etc., to protect such equipment against intrusion of pipe scale, welding spatter and other foreign material. The use of a proper size strainer together with a basket of suitable mesh size, pays dividends in reduced maintenance on mechanisms which are in contact with flowing liquids.

 

Model BVBS Vertical In-Line Strainers

Strainers are installed in pipelines ahead of meters, pumps, valves and other flow stream equipment for protection against intrusion of pipe scale, welding spatter and other foreign material. The use of a properly sized strainer, together with a basket of suitable mesh, reduces maintenance and the chance of system failure due to foreign material in the flowing stream.

 

Air Eliminators and Combination Strainer/Air Eliminator

Air Eliminators and Combination Air Eliminator Strainers are designed to provide separation, elimination and prevention of air in piping systems for a variety of installations and conditions.

Positive displacement and turbine meters, being volumetric measuring devices, cannot differentiate between liquid, air and vapor. Although the air content, in most instances, is small when compared with the product, it will contribute to measurable error. Large amounts of free air or vapor entrapped in a piping system, not only compromises meter accuracy but can lead to overspeeding of the measuring unit, creating excessive wear or possible unit failure. To insure accurate liquid measurement, it is necessary to remove all vapor and free all entrained air from the system prior to entry into the measuring unit.
