Viking Pump: Strainers
July 21, 2004
Viking Pump's Lid-Ease(R) strainers are specially designed to protect any pumping system by preventing solids or foreign materials from entering the pump. As a result, pumps and downstream process equipment experience fewer repairs, reduced downtime and longer life. High differential pressures are accommodated by a perforated stainless steel basket with maximum hoop strength, which supports an inner stainless steel screen. Differential pressure indicators that show when the basket needs to be cleaned are optional. The strainer basket comes in numerous options from 10 to 100 mesh screens, or no screen (basket openings 0.188 in. diameter). The basket can also include optional magnetic inserts for trapping ferrous particles.
