The Fluid Engineering signature fabricated duplex strainer line is the series 534 duplex. The fabricated design makes use of tall strainer housings to incorporate longer baskets that increase holding capacity and get longer run times between change-outs. The custom-designed strainer systems incorporates manifolds and industrial valves. This style duplex has a small footprint but is only available in an offset inlet/outlet configuration. These duplex strainers are ideal for applications where the flow cannot be interrupted to remove a basket for cleaning. Continuous flow is maintained by utilizing two separate basket chambers with valves to direct the flow from one housing to the other. In most cases, the valve operators can be linked together to synchronize the change-over of flow to the secondary housing. The valve changeover can also be automated. The valves in the 534 duplex are not integral, making valve maintenance and replacement a snap.
The strainer housing and valve materials are available in a myriad of materials and configurations to meet the requirements of various applications.
