Flushing strainers are a variation of a standard simplex basket strainer, having a special "bottomless" basket which allows accumulated particles to flush out the drain port when a valve is opened.
The user supplied valve can be manually or automatically actuated based upon differential pressure or a timer.
The time required for flushing varies based upon the operating pressure and particle characteristics, but is typically only a few seconds.
Soft particles that become lodged in the strainer perforation or mesh will require manual cleaning to remove.
Relative low cost and cost effective for small strainer sizes
Larger open area ratio than a Y-strainer equates to lower pressure drops across strainer and less frequent flushing
Quick delivery, usually within 2-4 weeks
There are times where the desired open area ratio (OAR) or particle sizes to be flushed require a custom fabricated design. Sometimes other customizations such as nozzle orientation and centerline above the floor require a fabricated strainer. These often require 8-12 weeks manufacturing lead time along with drawing approval prior to releasing to manufacturing.
