These strainers have been designed for applications where easy maintenance and large capacity straining are required. Service time is minimal because the cover is secured with quick opening, non-yoke type knobs. Both the cover and basket use O-ring seals, eliminating the need to replace gaskets each time the strainer is serviced. This, combined with the machined basket seat eliminates particle bypass.With the appropriate wire mesh these strainers can be used to strain particles as small as 5 microns. Strainer bodies and covers are made of cast iron. All sizes feature o-ring cover seal. Baskets are O-ring sealed in machined seats. Quick release knobs are ductile iron. Studs and nuts are alloy steel. A plugged NPT connection is provided at location "D". The standard basket is 304 stainless steel with .057" perforation with minimum 6 to 1 open area ratio. Bronze, carbon steel, and stainless steel bodies are also available. Preferred Model 125 Simplex Oil Strainers are available in a number of standard sizes. Larger sizes, flanged models, strainers for working pressures over 200 psig, and a wide selection of special baskets are available by special order.
