Purpose:

If the basket strainer is being used for protection rather than filtration, the strainer will suffice in most applications.

Service:

With services that require extremely sturdy screens, such as high pressure/temperature applications and services with high viscosity, we recommends that perforated screens without mesh liners be used. If mesh is required to obtain a certain level of filtration, then we recommends a trapped perf./mesh /perf. Combination.

Filtration Level:

When choosing a perf. Or a mesh/perf. Combination attention should be given to ensure overstraining doer not occur. As a general rule the specified level of filtration should be no smaller than half the size of the particle to be removed. If too fine a filtration is specified the pressure drop through the strainer will increase very rapidly, possibly causing damage to the basket.
