  • Are PCI’s Strainers Available in Brass and Stainless Steel?

    Yes, PCI offers brass and stainless steel strainers, including brass Y strainers and stainless steel Y strainers. Brass Y strainers are suitable for non-aggressive media, making them ideal for water and low-corrosive applications. Stainless steel Y strainers excel in corrosive environments as they are durable and can withstand high temperatures and pressures. Both materials provide efficient particulate filtration, protecting downstream components. The choice between brass and stainless steel depends on the specific application requirements and balancing factors such as cost, corrosion resistance, and mechanical strength. We also provide PUC Y strainers too.
  • Does PCI Offer Both Threaded and Flanged Strainers?

    PCI provides a range of strainers, including both threaded and flanged options. Flanged strainers offer easy installation and removal with a secure, leak-resistant connection, making them suitable for larger pipelines and high-pressure applications. The flange design simplifies maintenance and allows for efficient cleaning of the strainer element. We offer flange basket strainers made from various materials, including cast iron and steel. Threaded strainers, on the other hand, are more compact and suitable for smaller pipelines. They offer a simple, threaded connection for ease of installation, making them convenient for low-pressure applications where space is limited. With all the threaded and flanged strainers we sell, check the warranty details.
  • What Industries are PCI’s Strainers Suited For?

    PCI’s strainers are versatile and suitable for multiple industries where fluid systems require protection from unwanted debris. They are commonly used in:
    Water treatment: Strainers remove particles and impurities from water before further processing.
    Chemical processing: Strainers protect chemical processing plants' pumps, nozzles, and valves.
    Manufacturing: Used in plants to safeguard equipment from debris, enhancing efficiency.
    Oil and gas: In pipelines, strainers prevent damage to valves, pumps, and other sensitive equipment by filtering out contaminants.
    PCI strainers are robust and available in brass, stainless steel, and PVC, making them ideal for diverse industrial environments. 
  • Is There a Variety of Sizes Available for PCI’s Strainers?

    PCI offers strainers, including Y strainers and basket strainers, in various sizes to meet the specific needs of different piping systems and industrial applications. For example, in water treatment systems, strainers often come in sizes ranging from 25mm to 300mm in diameter. In larger industrial applications, such as chemical plants, strainers may be in larger sizes, such as 50mm to 600mm in diameter. The specific size selection depends on factors like the flow rate, pipe diameter, and the nature of the contaminants that need to be filtered. Standardisation, such as per ANSI or DIN specifications, helps ensure compatibility across industries.
