Lid-Ease strainers protect pumping systems
Feb 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Viking Pump's Lid-Ease strainers are designed to protect any pumping system by preventing solids or foreign materials from entering the pump.
Several features of Viking's Lid-Ease strainers ensure reliable performance and maximum pump uptime. For example, high differential pressures are accommodated by a perforated stainless steel basket with maximum hoop strength that supports an inner stainless steel screen. Differential pressure indicators that show when the basket needs to be cleaned are optional. To stop entrained solids and foreign materials, the strainer basket comes in options from 10 to 100 mesh screens, or no screen (basket openings 0.188" diameter).
The basket can include optional magnetic inserts for trapping ferrous particles. Maintenance is made trouble-free by a breech lock lid that enables simple top removal of the basket for cleaning.
Lid-Ease strainers come in three port options: grooved, tapped, and flanged. Several construction materials are available for the strainer, including aluminum, cast iron, ductile iron, and stainless steel. All baskets are made of 304 or 316 stainless steel. Capacities range from 20 to 1,500 gpm. For more information, contact Viking Pump, 406 State St, Cedar Falls IA 50613.
