To simplify maintenance the Model 2596 features a unitized modular assembly. The motor, gear reducer, and the internal operating mechanism are housed within the strainer cover and lift off as a unit. This makes all components easily accessible and reduces associated maintenance costs.
With an automatic control system monitoring the strainer operation, cleaning is accomplished by an integral backwash system. A small portion of the screen element is isolated and cleaned by reverse flow. The remaining screen area continues to strain – providing uninterrupted flow. With this efficient design, only a small amount of the liquid being strained is used to carry away the debris from the strainer. Continuous flow is assured and protection is provided for nozzles, pumps, valves, heat exchangers, and process equipment.
A common problem in many automatic selfcleaning strainers is inefficient backwashing
due to debris lodged in the strainer element.
The Model 2596 2"- 8" strainer features a
unique vane plate positioned at the inlet of
the strainer element where it contacts the
process media before it enters the element.
The vane causes the incoming liquid to move
in a circular motion forcing the debris to lay up against the surface of the strainer element
rather than lodging in the element’s openings.
Lodged debris can negatively impact the
differential pressure across the strainer,
resulting in a shut down of the strainer
and manual cleaning of the element.
