Spence Strainers

Y Strainers, Basket Strainers, Temporary Strainers

Strainers are closed vessels with a cleanable screen element designed to remove and retain foreign particles from various flowing fluids. Utilizing strainers ultimately protects valves, regulators, and other products from damage, inefficiencies and energy wasting.

Spence offers three types of strainers: Y strainers, basket strainers, and temporary strainers.

Y Strainers are designed to sustain pressures up to 3705 PSIG and temperatures as high as 800° F. Y strainers are manufactured from cast and ductile iron, bronze, carbon steel, chrome molly, and stainless steel.

Temporary Strainers are designed for temporary or short period operations, extracting particles in a start-up process. During the initial inception of a new or restored process the Temporary Strainer will remove any coarse debris that was unavoidably retained within a system.

Temporary strainers can be used in both vertical and horizontal pipelines. They are constructed of stainless steel, with other materials available.
