Vertical & horizontal installation
Traditional pot or basket strainers are limited by their horizontal installation in pipelines.
In the past, the option to utilise a strainer also in vertical mounting was only provided by Y-Filters – with its given disadvantages of high flow resistance and inconvenient handling of the cover for removal of the sieve (net weight of the cover, overhead work).
The Filter Type W, however, can be installed in both ways – with its given advantages in regards to minimal pressure losses and low frequency of maintenance.
In addition, equipping the Filter Type W with swivel (horizontal) or swing arm (vertikal) provides the maintenance personnel easier handling of the cover and a crane-independent removal of the sieve – with the dirt for cleaning.
