Designed for larger piping systems with flow rates up to 40,000 gpm, Eaton’s Model 510 Simplex Basket Strainers protect piping system components from damage caused by particulate matter in the system flow. The unit uses four strainer baskets, rather than just one, which helps keep operating costs low by making basket cleaning a one person job. Because the four baskets are smaller and lighter than one large basket, one person can remove them from the housing without help or the need to set up lifting equipment.
