  • Overview
  •  

The Model 72 Duplex Oil Strainers are ideal for duplex fuel oil handling systems and for those applications where the requirement for a continuous supply of oil does not permit interruption of the flow for the routine cleaning of strainer baskets.  In the Model 72 strainer, oil flows through only one basket at a time.  The inactive basket is completely sealed off and may be readily removed.  Switching from one basket to the other is accomplished by moving the handle through a 180° arc.  There is no obstruction to the flow even when the handle is in the intermediate position. At the end of its travel the handle prevents inadvertent opening of the active side. Covers are O-ringed to assure an air tight seal and are secured with quick-opening eyebolts for easy basket access. These strainers are suitable for use on the suction side of the oil pumps or for discharge pressures up to 200 PSIG.  They are available in the sizes shown in the table with the indicated threaded or flanged connections. All sizes have one-piece cast iron bodies, (ASTM  A-126) and are hydrostatically tested at 300 PSIG. Standard baskets have 3/64" perforations. Mesh lined baskets for smaller particle filtration are available in 40, 60, 100, and 200 mesh construction.
