1/4" NPT cover vent taps and inlet/outlet nozzle taps, for installation of gauges, meters, valves or other equipment, are available for most strainers with the exception of plastic strainers
Cover Vent Valves
Available in brass or stainless steel, needle type valves mount on the cover of the strainer with a 1/4" NPT tap. The valves are rated for 200 psi at 100 F
These ball type valves are used to drain the strainer housing. They are available in brass or stainless steel and are rated at 600 psi at 100 F with either 1/4" or 1/3" NPT connections.
Differential Pressure Gauge
This gauge shows the pressure differential across the strainer and is an aid in determining when to change out the strainer basket. It has a 0-30 psid pressure range and features a 3 1/2" gauge face. Rated at 3000 psi, it comes with a 1/4" NPT connection in either brass or stainless steel.
Differential Pressure Gauge with Switch
This is the standard gauge described above except that it includes a double pole, double through switch to permit control of a remote electrical device such a light on a control panel when a predetermined differential pressure is reached. The switch contacts are rated at 10A, 115V, 60 Hz.
If the standard seals on a Eaton strainer are not suitable for a specific application, a variety of special seals is offered which includes EPDM, Viton, Buna-N and TFE encapsulated.
Heavy Duty Strainer Baskets
For very demanding applications, heavy-duty construction strainer baskets are available. Heavy Duty Baskets have metal banding spot welded at the top and middle of the basket to provide extra strength and support. These baskets are extremely rugged and will stand up to the most abusive applications.
