OverviewThe basket or element is the heart of a Eaton Strainer. It is designed to be both effective and durable so that it will function reliably for years. After a particular type of strainer housing has been selected, equal concern should be given to the basket or screen design and the perforation or mesh size - for this alone determines the ultimate functionality and performance of the strainer.
Eaton Model 596 and 2596 Automatic, Self-Cleaning Strainers utilize a screen element rather than a basket to trap unwanted particles. These screen elements are designed so that during backwashing the debris is easily dislodged and carried away through the backwash arm and out of the strainer. Several types are available to meet all application requirements.
