Y Strainers

A Y strainer mechanically removes and filters solids and other particles when fluid flows through it. They are essential in numerous fluid control applications to ensure that particles within the fluid do not negatively affect any downstream components.

They are available in a range of sizes with both threaded and flanged end connections. As its name implies, a Y strainer is shaped like a Y and is used to filter or strain out particulates from steam, gas, or liquid. This mechanical straining process is possible because of a filter element composed of mesh, perforated metal, or a wedge wire straining element. The most common kind of straining element is a wire mesh. Some also include blow-off/blow-down valves that make the cleaning process easier.

Variants and Options include:

  • WRAS approval
  • Different mesh/screen perforation sizes
