Strainers- Kira Valves and Engineering

Strainers are used in almost every industry to protect equipment and to ensure product purity. We can manufacture strainers to the finest micron. We have a cost effective design that is used in applications where the flow is least interrupted. The strainer is installed in a pipeline to remove unnecessary solids from fluids or gases. Straining is accomplished by directing the fluid through a basket where debris is trapped on the inside of a screen element and clean fluid flows through the outlet. Our basket strainers are available in standard or custom designs. Fabricated designs can be manufactured from existing patterns or foundry capabilities. This series can be custom designed to our customers’ needs.
