FWIC ST1703-300 Y-Type Flange to Groove End strainers mechanically remove solids from flowing steam, gases or liquid piping systems with the use of a perforated or wire mesh straining screen, and are used to protect equipment. They get their names from their configuration, which includes a branch angled off the flow path. Y strainers are most often used for steam and gases but are also used for liquids.
They have less debris holding capacity and higher pressure drops than basket strainers, but they can be used in either horizontal or vertical pipe runs where the flow is downwards. They can also be fitted with a blow-off connection at the end of the branch end that includes a valve, which allows for cleaning.
The valve is opened without shutting off the flow or disassembling the strainer, as the flow through the pipe will flush out the solids in the screen. They are provided with a variety of end connections, including flanged, grooved and flange-groove ends.
