Proper installation method for Y-strainer

Posted by Bundor valve
Y-strainer is mainly composed of pipe, main pipe, strainer, flange, flange cover and fastener, etc.When the liquid enters the filter basket through the main pipe, the solid impurity particles are blocked in the filter blue, and the clean fluid is discharged through the filter basket and through the filter outlet.
The mesh is made into a cylindrical basket shape to increase its strength and is stronger than a single-layer net, while the flange cover at the bottom of the Y-shaped interface can be unscrewed to periodically remove particles and impurities deposited in the basket.
Proper installation method for Y-strainer
First, the threaded surfaces of all pipes in the Y filter should be carefully cleaned before installation, and proper amount of pipe sealant or teflon tape should be used.The end threads are not treated to prevent sealant or teflon tape from entering the piping system.
Second, the Y-strainer can be installed horizontally or vertically downward.Only when installing, pay attention to the material of the gasket of the filter.If non-metallic material, it is easy to damage due to high temperature.

In addition, there are many types of Y-strainers, such as light filters, air filters, liquid filters.Therefore, the installation method should also be determined according to the actual situation of different types of Y-strainers.
