Y-strainer by MetraFlex (2017 NFPA Expo)
MetraFlex’s new LPD Y-strainer has an internal geometry and a screen which is 30% larger with more holes than a traditional basket-style strainer, the company states. According to Metraflex, the LPD Y-strainer can save so much energy it can have a ROI of 12 months. The unit’s body casting does not block the screen’s opening, so flow is far less turbulent through the additional holes. Engineers can use Metraflex’s online calculator to compare the LPD Y-strainer to traditional units and see how much money can be saved.
