About Basket Strainers

FSI strainers are designed and built to the same standards as other FSI vessels. Durable, ASME Code construction, an efficient in-line and offset style design, and inlet/outlet ports from 2” up to 16” provide the economical solution to most industrial straining requirements. Typical applications include water and waste treatment industries, power generation plants, and the marine, paper, pharmaceutical and food industries.

An important design element to consider in a basket strainer are the free open areas. This is the ratio of open area through the strainer basket to the cross sectional area of the pipeline. FSI strainers provide at least an 8 to 1 ratio. Anything less may cause additional pressure drop.
