All Plastic Basket Strainer
All-Plastic Simplex Strainer is the answer for straining
applications in corrosive or ultra pure services. There is
no metal used in its construction to leach out and contaminate
sensitive fluids. And because it’s plastic this simplex
strainer will never rust or corrode. Another benefit, often
overlooked, is that because it is plastic, the strainer will
never need painting or coating. It will stand up and function
for years in applications where a metal strainer would have
to be coated or painted just to survive. Perforated plastic
baskets, made of the same material as the strainer housing,
are standard. For applications that require fine mesh straining,
baskets can be fabricated from stainless steel, extending
the application flexibility of this all-plastic basket strainer.
Basket changing or cleanout couldn’t be easier. The
cover spins off by hand, no tools are needed. And because
of the light weight of the strainer, installation is simplified.
Plastic simplex strainers can be used in many applications,
even some that you may have thought would require metal strainers.
Thinking of replacing a metal strainer with a plastic one
to take advantage of lower costs and better corrosion resistance?
First take a look at the temperature/non-shock pressure chart
to see if your application falls within range of the plastic
material you are considering. If it does, and chemical resistance
is not a problem, then the other consideration is the actual

recommendations may include things such as proper alignment
of the strainer in the piping system to eliminate stress,
correct support for the strainer and installation of spool
pieces of plastic pipe or expansion joints.
