Strainer Y Type

The Y Type Permanent Strainers are very versatile and can be used in a wide range of applications where protection of major capital equipment is required. Its body has a compact cylindrical shape that is very strong and can handle high pressures. This includes pumps, flowmeters, control valves, steam traps, heat exchangers, chillers, spray nozzles, relief valves, and regulators. The strainers are designed for both horizontal and vertical application in pipelines.

The removable drain plug features a stainless steel screen mesh. This economical strainer element is recommended for systems where damage to valves and other mechanical equipment needs to be avoided.

Debris in pipes is usually the main cause of failure, damage, energy loss, or reduction in productivity. Vee Bee offers a range of Y Type Strainers second to none, both in size, range, material and screen choice. The fabricated Y-type strainers are used for larger sizes and higher pressures and are generally more cost-effective. The mesh size of the strainer is compact and easy to clean. At Vee Bee, we are able to be able to design and manufacture custom-made specials to suit any known practical application.

Built in Accordance with International Standards

In addition to the basic materials, Vee Bee can manufacture in a wide variety of special metals such as Monel, Inconel, Hastalloy C, Duplex stainless and other alloy steels. We can provide a comprehensive range of flanges in accordance with all International Standards including ANSI, BS4504, BS10, and DIN specifications.

Vee Bee is increasingly aware of the problem of high differential pressure drops caused by some manufacturers reducing the size of their strainer bodies to save materials and cut costs. That is why Vee Bee supplies units with generous ratios of filtration area to pipe bore area to prevent flow restriction.

With almost 50 years of experience, plus our extensive in-house design, manufacture and testing facilities, we have the capability to meet any requirement.
