A pebble the size of a raisin can destroy a turbine meter that costs hundreds of dollars. To protect your meters‚ we strongly recommend installing a strainer in front of all meters located in lines that may contain damaging particles. Strainers also feature straightening vanes that help eliminate water turbulence and maximize meter performance.
Installation is easy—simply attach meter strainers directly to the meter flange. The flanged strainer is made of three main components: the main case (bronze)‚ top plate (bronze) and z-plate strainer (high-strength stainless steel). Maximum working pressure is 150 psi.
We also offer Y and basket strainers that reduce effects of water turbulence when located at least 6 to 8 pipe diameters from the meter inlet.
