Basket Strainers are used commonly in horizontal applications where cleaning will be less frequent. Because of their larger bodies, they typically provide more open area for debris collection than Y-strainers. The straining element (a.k.a the "basket") for a basket strainer has a handle for easy removal and secure placement within the strainer's body. The basket can have a slanted top design (as shown to the left) or a straight top design.
Simplex basket strainer features include large straining capacities, precision machined seats, standard blow-off drain connections and cover vents furnished with plugs, and many screen options. All cast iron and carbon steel pipe strainer basket filter units are epoxy painted to resist rust; all threaded end connections have hex ends for easy installation. Many models have gauge taps as a standard feature. Titan also offers a variety of cover designs, including a quick-open cover for easy access to the straining element.
