FTP Basket strainers are typically used to eliminate debris from fluid lines and piping usually just before a pump, they are also know as pump strainers and or 'hair and lint' strainers. FTP's non-corrosive strainers are designed for commercial pool use, large fountains, water parks, zoos, etc, fresh water and saltwater. We also supply basket strainers for industrial and chemical applications. In the chemical market they would eliminate condensates & debris from fluid chemical lines - again usually just before a pump intake.

Custom Built Strainers
Fluidtrol can customize any of our standard basket strainers
or we can fabricate a specialized strainer for your specific application as below.
Shown below & to the right - Integral cast strainers for large mining operation. Utilizes high performance glass-ceramic matrix composite.
100 PSI rating- 24" inlet/outlet flanged.
The basket strainer construction is a vessel with an input end and outflow end. The flow internally passes through a 'basket'. The basket captures solid particulate and holds it, preventing the debris from entering the pump or returning to the flow. The basket strainer has an easily removed lid, so the basket can be pulled out so debris can be removed. In the case of Fluidtrol's strainers, we fabricate our strainers out of corrosion resistant materials, such as PVC, fiberglass or stainless steel. Our products will not rust and can withstand the oxidation and corrosion inherent in many fluids, like water, saltwater and chemicals.
Baskets: The standard strainer basket is laser cut from 12 gauge 304 stainless steel. Perforations are1/8 inch with 3/16 inch staggered centers. Our heavy duty SS baskets are long lasting and corrosion resistant.
Ends -- Strainer inlets and outlets are fabricated with the same material as the internal wetted areas. Standard Flanges include 150 lb. ANSI drilling. Alternatively F.P.T. can construct with Victaullic™ grooved, socket or threaded ends.
Tops -- Fluidtrol. Strainers are constructed with Quick-Locking tops with EDPM seals in the GS Series. For more severe service, flanged tops are supplied, standard. Teflon envelope gaskets are also available for severe service.
Port Configurations -- F.P.T. offers an "In-Line" design as a standard. For other applications, "Off-Set," and "Angled Off-Set," and "Boot" configurations are available. All units are equipped with a side bottom drain as standard.
Pressure Drop -- F.P.T. Strainers are designed to offer the lowest practical pressure drop. Using full flow ports, the open basket area typically is six times the cross sectional area of the pipe.
