Dimensions / Parameters

A reason for its popularity is the unusually large basket capacity. The free straining area with a perforated basket is a minimum of six times the cross sectional pipe area. No tools are needed to open the cover. The quick opening, swinging yoke can be disassembled and the basket removed in seconds. On sizes 4″ and larger, a special cover clamp is provided to distribute the seating pressure and to ensure positive seating of the cover. Another feature is a threaded drain on every size strainer (fitted with a yoke quickcloser). Sizes 2″ and larger are equipped with legs that bolt to the floor for rock solid installation. Wall thicknesses are exceptionally heavy. The basket seats are precision machined to give a tight seal and prevent any material from bypassing the basket. The Eaton Model 72 simplex basket strainer is a top quality, heavy-duty unit designed to stand up to the most demanding of applications.
